AFB Racing

 

We have been involved with short circuit road racing for some years now and in that time prepared Harley's, Triumph's, Yamaha, Kawasaki and top fuel Harley drag racers.

I first got involved with motor sport during the early 90's as team mechanic for the Redkir Redskins competing in Harley-Davidson's 883 Sportster championship. The team took runner up spot in 92 and won the championship in 93. We also had the opportunity to race at Daytona and finished a respectable 6th out of 80!

More recently I teamed up with local rider and very good friend, Chris Pope, to offer sponsorship with his Yamaha R1, he was then competing in the New Era Pro Bike championship. After a major in race engine failure we stepped up the support by way of a new bike, Chris went on to develop the bike into quite a formidable package.


Race Results

  • 2006 - Chris managed 2nd spot overall losing out by just 12 points on the championship.
  • 2007 - Was a year we would rather forget, hampered with technical issues and bad luck the whole year was a bit of a wash out. That's racing!
  • 2008 - This year we were having a crack at North Gloucester Road Racing. After a turbulent start to the season blowing 2 motors we settled in to finish overall 5th.
  • 2009 - We raced again with NG and bagged a pair of 4th spots in both their Power bike and open championships.
  • 2010 - We invested in new machinery by way of Yamaha much acclaimed R1 with cross plane crank. As they seemed to win just about every major event in 2009 we thought we must have some of that action! This bike would go on to present considerable difficulties to make work for us.
  • 2011 & 2012 - Once again we competed in NG's Power Bike & Open Championship. Chris was overall 3rd in both categories in both years.
  • 2015 - Having exhausted effort to make the 09 R1 work for us it was time for a fresh start, so we stepped up with a new 2015 Yamaha R1. with only two outing in this year we did manage to get on the box on both occasions with a 2nd & 3rd.

We are always glad to receive visitors at race meeting so come and find us and enjoy our hospitality.

We'd like to take opportunity to thank:  Mike Pearce & Sons for their continued support And Rock oil, new for 2015
