Another Gallery update, this time it's more Italjet Formula pics: Formula Gallery 2. This Gallery
includes some shots which I took of Jonas Erasmie's (aka DP) black custom Formula Racer for a Twist & Go feature. Jonas's bike has
some cool modifications, check out the handlebars, black suede seat, alumimium mesh... not only does the bike look good it goes quick too. Thanks
to those of you who sent in pics, keep sendin' em' in.
Finally on-line: Runner Gallery 3. This new Gallery selection includes Daniel McGeary's
Runner as featured in the current issue of Twist & Go, some shots I took of Per-Henrik Altestig's Runner in Stockholm, Sweden
(it's the one with the yellow/white/chequered flag spray job) plus some other cool pics that have been sent in, have a look.
There's been a gap in any news recently and a few unanswered emails, sorry about that. Some of you will know that I fractured
my elbow a couple of weeks ago whilst circuit racing at Elvington. Doctor says the arm will take several months to heal fully,
anyway onto the news:
Issue 14 of Twist & Go is out now. The
latest issue includes all the usual news and product info, a fair bit of Italjet
coverage this month including a review of the new Monster Mob race replica,
a report on the SANTA POD HIJACK written by me, new scooters from
the Intermot show in Munich and much more. It's a good issue, get your copy now...
Andy Pearson at PSN Scooters in Batley, West Yorkshire has come up with a
great idea of producing a Dragster calendar for 2003 featuring a nice mix
of custom bikes and scantily clad ladies, hmmmm. Here's a preview. It's all being done for
charidee and money raised from sales of the calendar will be donated to
Breast Cancer. The calendar will feature six custom Dragsters from the
likes of Andy himself, Karl Russell, me, Keith Sprague and Joe Elliot. Which
means there's room for one more... If you think your Dragster's good enough
then why not send us some pics?! You better get your skates on though as
there's not much time left. If your bike's chosen you'll need to bring your
Dragster to Batley on 21st October for the photo shoot. Price of the calendar
is going to be a fiver hopefully including postage within the UK, price will probably
be around £6 for orders outside the UK. For more details
contact Andy at PSN on 01924 445449.
Yesterday's X-racing at Santa Pod... nice to see those of you who came and despite the weather
it went quite well with some good runs up the strip, get the low-down by reading my report here.
