March 23, 2017
Finally the wait is over.. It feels like 2017 is only starting now, in my world of Superbikes, as the first round of Super GP @SA_SuperGP national superbike series kicks off this weekend in my back yard – Killarney International Raceway. It has been a very long off season and the time has been used wisely to develop the 2017 BMW S1000RR, but now I am really excited for 2017 to to get underway.
In fact, excited is a understatement. To make a come back to a full season of national racing in SA after 4 years racing abroad has me chomping at the bit to twist that grip. I am amping on so many levels. One is that I will be campaigning on my favorite Superbike of all time the BMW S1000RR. Two, I am starting the season in my home town on a track that I love and three I am running my own team, RPM Center Sandton Auto BMW. I am really looking forward to racing two heats on a race day after so many seasons in Europe where we only raced one heat per meeting. It will be great to race two heats of 18 laps and we are 100% ready to capitalize on this format. With the off season development of the bike, getting it to go the race distance, and me working hard on the bike fitness, training on the MX bike and cycling, we have the tools ready to get the job done.
Come and join us at Killaney International Raceway this weekend
