Team Manager Steven Beattie

The boys are looking forward this event and they are no strangers to the Foxhills Circuit. Jason is having a great season and recently had a podium weekend in the Fastest 40 at Foxhills. Glenn is also riding very well in both the English Series and had recent 1st overall in Duns at the Scottish. John has been training on his GASGAS 250 2 stroke and recently competed and convincingly won the Irish championship round at Pin Tavern.

The bikes are ready, have been out for a few tests, making some minor adjustments. The boys have been competing in a few local races a here in Northern Ireland and will continue to do so in the run up to event, as well as their continuing to compete for their respective teams nationally. We are good shape and looking for a good result at Foxhills.

As always you need a bit of luck on your side, but make no mistake we aren’t coming to make up the numbers – we want to be back in 2025 running single digits on the bikes. See you there!
