Aintree 4

Steve Porter #67

 A sad day at Aintree a tragic accident claimed the life our friend Steve Porter , Steve and Christian enjoyed some great battles during the 2009 season on the 400’s ,  a hard rider on track Steve was always willing to help Christian in the paddock even though he knew he was probably his biggest threat to winning the title, you will be sadly missed Steve and our thoughts are with your family.
          After some time a decision was made by the riders to run just the finals but after such a tragic day I’m not sure hearts were  really up for it, as after a few finals a number of accidents continued to occur, Christian also coming to grief at Club unable to continue due to damage to the bike thankfully he was ok.
          After another hold up the circuit had been advised by Fazakerly Hospital that they were getting a high level of casualties from the general public and  were unable prevent this but they were able to stop further casualties coming from the race meeting  so the meeting had to be abandoned.
            We are not sure what happens next at Aintree as the last meeting  scheduled in September has been abandoned pending track inspections by the ACU and the HSE , it may be run in October we are to be advised.
         I am currently rebuilding the bike and then w e will let you know the plans for the rest of the season, we have the last two rounds of the Wirral 100 at Anglesey and Oulton  to look forward to and Christian was kindly offered a ride on Scott Smythe’s 400 Honda for the Thundersport round at Anglesey in September , due to finances we are not sure as yet but we will let you know.
        As  ever I can’t thank you all enough for your  support , we are genuinely humbled by your generosity Martin Harrison thank you for another generous donation, John ( Fastrackimages) thankyou for another generous donation ,Jim Quin for your kind donation and Chris at Dynopro when we were trying to resolve the electrical problem and thanks to all the rest of the team you all know who you are . We wouldn’t be out there without you.
