Jubilee Bank holidays at Oulton Park

It’s a long trek to Oulton Park from Sunny Kent, the undulating challenging track set in beautiful Cheshire countryside more than makes up for the four hour journey though, and the time spent is defiantly worth it. The meeting set-up is a bit different due to local regulations which dictate a practice day followed by a race day.
Doug Edmondson: Doug has never been to Oulton before; it’s a difficult place to learn to go quick at so the decision was made to run in the Ediasia 400’s as well as the YPM’s. Unfortunately the practice places were full up on the Monday so the extra track time never materialised. Paul ‘Yats’ Norris is Doug’s pit crew this weekend as Steve has his hands full with the YPVS350


On the Podium In Wales!

Driving into the Pembrey track is a little like going back forty years, the ex RAF base provides some fairly basic facilities by modern standards, but the track more than makes up for that with a range of testing corners and flat out straights. It's a gem to be honest and the vibe is more laid back than at some of the busier circuits


Sunshine at Snetterton – Can’t be!

Yep blazing sunshine after the mist had cleared on all three days, unheard of in August normally let alone March, for those that don’t know the track, it has it’s own micro climate which normally means if it’s sunny in Norwich it’ll be rain, hail and pestilence at Snett!
But that is part of the charm of the place, and to be honest we probably wouldn’t have it any other way!

So how did Wave Racing get on? Rather well actually:


Well, here we go then, Judgement Time!

The first round of Bemsee’s season starts at Snetterton 300 this weekend, although the Yamaha Past Masters do not feature in the programme, there will be a few of the club masquerading as 400’s in the EDIAsia 400’s. The TZR250 is eligible for the sub 64hp sub class and six YPM runners are currently entered.

Doug Edmondson will be on the Wave Racing TZR, hoping that the pre-season testing pays off and the hard work the team have put in over the closed season proves effective. Hopefully the weather will be better than his last outing in the Boxing Day Plumb Pudding races, where Doug was the only runner in the top fifteen not on full wets. He scored superb 8th and 9th places none the less and impressed plenty of the paddock with his smooth riding.
