Despite almost being a resident of Brands Hatch for many seasons, particularly this month, Alan hasn't raced at the circuit for ten years.
This weekend that all changes as Alan will be out on the Suzuki SV650, taking part in the North Gloucester Road Racing Club's meeting there.
Being the kind of guy that he is, this doesn't mean that Alan will be neglecting the needs of his customers at the paddock truck. As you will see from this pcture taken at Anglesey last year, he is there, fitting tyres to the last minute. At the time of taking the photograph, Alan's race was being called to the collection area.
