NYRRSC Sponsored Rider – Richie Harrison



It’s a busy August for the Club with two events featuring top performers from the British Superbike Championship, both on the track and in the commentary box.

On Tuesday 2nd August the Honda Racing Team BSB riders Jason O’ Halloran and Dan Linfoot will be our guests.  When Honda returned from their sabbatical in 2015 they selected Jason and Dan and kept the same line up for this season after injuries played a major part last year.  Australian Jason has been a Honda man since moving to the British Championship and in 2014 developed the Fireblade in a couple of BSB races whilst taking the Honda to second in the National Superstock Championship against a horde of Kawasakis and BMWs.

A strong start to this season was topped off by that thrilling race 1 win at Snetterton, his first BSB win. Second in that race , of course,was his teamate Dan Linfoot.

Dan, who was sponsored by the NYRRSC for many years, had a challenging start to the season that was making a showdown position look somewhat difficult,especially with the depth of talent in BSB this year. But set-up changes at the Snetterton test were a big step forward and Dan hasn’t been off the podium since. As we head towards Thruxton, Jason is third in the Championship on 116 points with Dan in fourth on 111 points.

On Wednesday 17th August,  Eurosport commentator James Whitham makes a welcome return to the club, of which he is Honorary President. Since retiring from competition James has kept busy casting his expert eye on BSB, World Superbikes and the Isle Of Man TT. He also runs track training days which is what he will be doing on the 17th before calling in to see us at the Club on his way home!  It is hoped that James will be joined by one (or more) of his high profile instructors so watch out for updates.  A James Whitham Motorcycle Track Training Day has top level coaches and runs groups no bigger than 15 riders. There are still spaces available for the Croft event so for more details and how to book go to www.james<http://www.james>whitham.com  Why not enjoy a top level track day and then join us for a chat and a laugh at the NYRRSC?
