In a rare weekend off, Alan went to watch the final British Superbikes Round at Brands Hatch GP Circuit at the weekend. In a fantastic triple header of BSB races, Shane (Shakey) Byrne clinched the title ahead of arch rival Tommy Hill. In the true sporting nature of bike racing, Tommy is seen here helping Shakey celebrate with the champagne. A great shot of two people at the top of their game, enjoying the hard won spoils of victory.
Shakey has risen to the very top of his profession from fairly humble beginnings as a club racer with Bemsee. At the time, he was often a customer at the A&R Racing paddock truck, like so many others, getting tyres supplied and fitted efficiently and picking up numerous other essential items at the time. We are proud and happy to have played even a tiny, peripheral part in the Shane Byrne success story. Well done Shakey and all the BSB riders that have given us such great racing.
