BRA Riders excel at
Barry Sheene Festival of Speed
Bucket racing Association riders did very well
across the classes at
the 2012 Barry Sheene Festival of Speed meeting at
Lindsay McKay won all
four heats to take out the Post Classic 250cc class,
was 2nd in the Post Classic 350cc class and 3rd
place in the Ken Lucas Senior Challenge. All results
came from Lindsay's 250cc Yamaha which was ably looked after by Lyall Bennett.
Stephen Kairl won the
Forgotten Era 125cc class winning all 4 heats on his
Honda MTR 125cc. He was not so lucky with his 350
after finishing a fine third in the first leg of the
Forgotten Era 350cc class, in the second heat he had
a major sideways moment on his Yamaha when it seized
in the high speed turn one. The Yamaha was parked
with a suspected broken crank.
Jason Dunn and Paul Borg carried their fierce rivalry in
Motolites to their P6 HONDA RS125's putting on some
great racing swapping places continuously with Jason just
edging out Paul for the weekend. Jason was also
competing in the period 6 250cc class but got taken out
by another rider in the first heat. Riders OK but some
hasty repairs by his Dad Col got the bike shipshape for
the rest of the event. Jason concentrated on the 125cc
class after that.
Try as he might Paul Borg had to give best to Jason
Dunn on the day but not without a fine display of
No mistaking the style, regular Motolite rider
Tyler Bradford finished 2nd in the Pre modern F3
class on his Honda RS125 with Michael McLean
(Whites racing products)
another bucket racer finishing 3rd in the same
F3 class on his Honda
Lindsay McKay on his winning way. The Yamaha ran
faultlessly all weekend.
Steve Kairl hustles the little Honda MTR to good effect
winning all 4 heats in the 125cc Forgotten Era.
Some interesting Bikes at the BSFOS
Not your average bucket racer but lets see, Norton
featherbed frame, roadster es-2 engine highly modified,
various bits and pieces looks like a very expensive
dare I say it bucket racer. Quick too, rider Chris Swallow won every time out.
Greg Delsanto's interesting space framed 440 Maico finished 3rd in
the The Forgotten Era 500cc Class.
