GMEC HAS A HISTORY OF BEEN INVOLVED IN MOTORCYCLE RACING. FROM COMPETING OURSELVES IN SPEEDWAY AND GRASSTRACK, TO BEING INVOLVED IN ROAD RACING, DRAG RACING AND EVEN SOME FOUR WHEEL EVENTS!
WE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL ASSOCIATION WITH SCARBOROUGH'S JAMES NEESOM, WHO WENT ON TO WIN THE 2015 MANX GP BEFORE DECIDING TO RETIRE. A GREAT GUY, AND WE WISH HIM WELL FOR HIS FUTURE ENDEAVOURS!
PICTURED ABOVE IS JAMES HELPING US PREPARE THE HRC FIREBLADE, WHICH HE FIRST RODE AT OLIVERS MOUNT. NO SHAKE DOWN OR PRACTICE, BUT STILL CAME A VERY RESPECTABLE 6TH FIRST TIME ON A 1000!! THE BLADE WAS OWNED AND PREVIOUSLY RIDDEN BY JAMES HUNT (NOT THEE) WHO ALSO HAD SOME VERY SUCCESSFUL RACES ON IT AND WAS KINDLY ON LOAN TO US!
JAMES NEESOM ALSO VERY SUCCESSFULLY RODE HIS KAWASAKI 650 LIGHTWEIGHT, KAWASAKI ZX6 AND ZX10 RACE BIKES TO GREAT EFFECT!
ABOVE AND BELOW IS JAMES IN ACTION AT OLIVERS MOUNT.
ITS GREAT TO SEE OLIVERS MOUNT NOW UP AND RUNNING AGAIN, WITH A GREAT TEAM BEHIND IT. WITH THE LIKES OF MICK GRANT AND EDDIE ROBERTS AT THE HELM, IT CAN ONLY GO FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH, AND GOING ON THE SUCCESS OF THE BARRY SHEENE WEEKEND - IT WILL DO EXACTLY THAT!
WITH THE SAD LOSS IN RECENT TIMES OF SO MUCH RACING TALENT, INCLUDING LOCAL LAD JAMES COWTON, IT WOULD OF BEEN SUCH A WASTE FOR IT TO OF DISAPPEARED. THIS WILL BE THE START OF A NEW DAWN OF ROAD RACING, BOTH IN THE CIRCUIT AND THE NEW UP AND COMING TALENT WHOM WILL GRACE THE CIRCUIT TO DO BATTLE!
