    i seem to recall when honda britain put simon crafar on a ride once they simply said to the acu there sort the license system or honda britain may pull the pin so things got better.
    early kiwiws at the iom used to run under a british license at our ACU wasn't affiliated to the right people.... but that's pre 1930 so a moot point here.

    Pre early 1980's. I think Croz had to ride in 1980 on a licence generated out of Aussie....

    Moto America doesn't even make it to TV here anymore. Bloody shame, great series.
    That sucks. Moto America was put together specifically to promote US talent and give them a path to world championships. TV coverage is a key piece of that promotion.

    Good to see Shane running in the UK championship. He did really well in the States but he didn't get picked up by a good team for whatever reasons. Looking forward to seeing him taking it to the top level.

    money, a foreign winner won't get your product on the front page, a local winner will. simply, the whole sport changed a while back from riders getting paid a lot to having to bring money to the table as well as talent.

    Moto America is also focussed on promoting local talent so there's people coming through to be the next American world champ. A foreigner kicking all of their arses does not help that.

    Thruxton Circut.
    Shane had further reasonable results, and good weather over the weekend at Thruxton, a big flat track set around an ex World War 2 airfield.
    FP 1 had a tyre delaminate with a crash, but still had fastest lap time again.
    Finishing 4th in his race, he is still on top of the BSB Stock 600 championship, well done.

    the free practice 1 crash was his own mistake, not a tyre delaminating according to his facebook page.

    Here is Shane's race from Thruxton, some briliant fast close racing from this kiwi lad, he has just gone to another level. Next meeting Cadwell Park two weeks time.
