This weekend will feel quite odd for the crew here at A&R Racing. Having been to Brands Hatch three times in March, we won't know what to do with ourselves as we are not there. In fact, we are not out with the paddock truck at all this weekend.
This gives Alan a chance to get out and do some more racing himself. After a very successful North Gloucester round at Brands in March, this week sees him out on the new Suzuki at Tonfanau. Situated on the coast of Wales, about 20 miles from Aberystwyth, this short but technical circuit produces some very close racing. The atmosphere is "Old School" and full of charm, with a friendly welcome from the locals. If you have Sunday free, we can recommend spectating at Tonfanau.
It will be great for all of us to get a bit of a break. This has been the busiest start to a season that we have ever known. A huge thank you goes to all our customers, whether buying online, by mail order or in person at the circuits, who have made this success happen.
Finally, well done to all who took part in the Bemsee round at Brands Hatch last weekend, especially the club rookies who must have started to wonder what they had let themselves in for at some point, with torrential rain and howling winds making it a great achievement just to stay on the bike until the end. Looking forward to better conditions, we will see you at Snetterton in a few weeks.
