BRA riders BSFOS 2013Once again current and former BRA riders excelled throughout the various classes at this unique historic motorcycle event.

The P6 125cc Class was dominated by BRA riders  #79 Stephen Kairl, #93 Paul Borg and #69 Jason Dunn finishing in that order. Newcomer Anthony Marsden finished in 6th place in his first race on an Honda RS 125 steadily improving his lap times with setup help from Col Dunn.

Post Classic and Forgotten Era Class 125cc. Stephen Kairl also won this class on his Honda MTR125 with another Bucket racer Queenslander Ron Carrick finishing second.

Post Classic 250cc. 1st. Peter Wade got his Suzuki 250cc really singing to put one over on the Yamahas.

Forgotten Era 350cc saw Stephen Kairl finish 2nd in this Class bringing his tally to 2 wins and a 2nd making him the most successful rider of the meeting.

Post Classic 500cc. 2nd Peter Wade Suzuki 500cc.

Period 6 500cc Class. Regular Motolite racer Michael McLean won on his  Honda 400 sponsored by Whites Racing Products.

Pre Modern F1 had regular One hour rider Alex Pickett of Cycle Torque doing incredible lap times on Brian Mowles rather standard Honda 900 to finish an excellent 3rd against much hotter machinery.


It all goes to prove if you want to be fast, learn on and race a little-un, it's all about corner speed and making the most of the power you've got. Learning to race on powerful bikes with too much power for your ability just gives you bad habits and scares the crap out of you. Power Corrupts.

So if you want to sharpen your race craft and cornering skills get yourself a CommuterLite, Superlite or Motolite and do some real racing. Ant West, Joshua Brooks and Chris Vermulen  raced the Moriwaki 80s (Motolite) when they first hit road racing, look where they are now, good enough for them, surely good enough for you. 

If you can ride a Bucket fast then your on the way!
