Our racing passion started with ownership of several classic bikes in the 70’s and 80’s and with spectating at many race meetings. Adrian then had a short solo racing career on an LC350 but had a tendency to fall off due to over exuberance.
Wife Jan got sick of this and volunteered as his first sidecar passenger on a 4 stroke Kawasaki in the mid 1980’s. This racing partnership ended with the arrival of Bob, so Adrian went on to race a formula 2 TZ 350 2 stroke outfit at national level. After an accident at Oliver’s Mount he sustained a spinal injury restricting movement from the chest down and for the next 25 years thought his racing days were over.
He did, however, get back on a road going sidecar outfit and started doing track days with Bob as passenger until 2014 when the ACU granted his racing licence again. This was the start of the father and son partnership which began with them racing a BMW sitter outfit with the British Historic Racing Club for 2 years. This culminated in 1st place in the 750 championship in 2015.
They then progressed to a Rod Bellas built kneeler outfit and started mainly racing with the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club. Competition in the club is strong but they managed 2nd place in the 750cc P2 Championship in 2017 & 2018.
For 2019 to 2021 the team moved onto campaigning the P3 1070cc outfit, culminating in securing 2nd place in the 2021 P3 (over 750cc) CRMC Championship.
