Congratulations to Richie Moore

Moorespeed airheads

New lap record at the iom and four in the first five over the line, including 1st, for the sidecars.

One hell of an achievement

Sounds about right! I'll be watching youtube over the next few days to catch some of the highlights of his finely tuned machines. I suspect the fact that it wasn't 5 for 5 will be driving him bonkers trying to figure out why... and will probably increase the time taken to get my last few bits! Bugga!!

Same here. Nada. Zip

Thanks for sharing the good news. Has anyone let Richie know it's safe to return? I'd love to hear from him again - as I'm sure others would as well.

I got a text back from him saying he was going to post on this thread, however he's racing again this coming weekend in Anglsey so it will be a busy week for him.
