NO MORE 1/5 Bikes
« on: October 25, 2017, 04:03:16 PM »
I have decided to give up 1/5th Bikes.
My bikes are not competitive anymore and I cannot justify new equipment with the limited amount of race time available at Cotswold.
I will be handing all my bikes and related equipment to Neal.

That's a shame Fred.

I was watching your KP Nitro at Aldershot video earlier this week, thinking how good it was.

We will miss you running the bikes, this is the second time for retirement, will you stick to it this time ?

Very best for the future, whatever you do

Regards

Dam!
I am sorry to hear this Fred.
You will be missed, particularly in the nitro class, where you have given us all (me) some really brilliant close racing over the years.

Very sorry to hear that Fred but can understand your reasons.  You will certainly be missed around the pits.  Hopefully you will still be at the Cotswolds meetings to impart some words of wisdom.

Best wishes
