David Bell Racing Report

DAVID BELL RACING                                                                                                                                                                                            

Spa-Francorchamps 1/2 July 2017                                                                                                                                                          

European Classic Series

David was our late replacement guest at the Awards Evening in February at the Britannia Airport Hotel, replacing Founder Member Les Siddle who was taken ill at the eleventh hour.

Last week the Graham Turnbull Yamaha team set sail on Wednesday from the Tyne to Ijmuiden (Amsterdam) then drove 300km to Spa, practiced on Friday on the 1988 one-litre FZ, qualified a creditable tenth having never seen the track and raced in the CSBK-Masters-Series (German Championship).  

David enjoyed every minute of the first race, finishing 6th overall (avg. 89mph), in the second race, after leading the first three laps of the gruelling, 4.35mile Ardennes Forest circuit, managed to finish a very good third place (avg. 92mph) (58 started).  He then got out the 1989 FZR-R1000 and after two practice sessions in the rain on Saturday, qualified 14th for the Pro Classic (French Championship).   

It was wet again for race 1 on Sunday and as before he led the 43 starters for the first three laps, only succumbing to Cedric Louvel on a very trick GSXR by 0.3secs, David finished second and won the Open Class (avg. 95mph), 2.896 secs ahead of third overall Ivan Linton.

Only 27 started Race 2 of the French Championship in torrential rain and David understandably ‘rolled it off a bit’ (avg. 84mph) to finish first in the Open Class again, but fifth overall.

It was a very successful trip for the team, with manager Wayne Turnbull of Autominster Garage in Morpeth and mechanics Dave Jackson and Ali Crisp all overjoyed with the results.  The supporting entourage of 16 included family members, a busload of serial inebriates from the Plough in Pelton and finally, predictably clad in green, Chief Fan ‘Kawasaki’ Carl.

Battle Of Britain Meeting

Can we clarify that the NEMCRC are not involved in this years Battle of Britain meeting at Croft as is currently being advertised.  This decision was made at the beginning of the year as we incurred an even bigger loss last year than the previous year, which was due to lack of entries and support.  We have asked for our name to be withdrawn from the advertisement a number of times without success, as riders are still contacting us for entries etc. 

We can only suggest that anyone wishing to enter the meeting contacts either the Darlington and District Motor Club (DDMC) or Croft Circuit for further information.
