Since starting out with NG Road Racing Club in 2003 we have been blessed with meeting some of the most genuine and kind-hearted people you would ever wish to know. That just about sums up everyone involved with the club. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the start and were offered help at every step of the way.
You soon realise what a great bunch of people you’re dealing with when you have your first crash. Within minutes there’ll be a crowd of fellow competitors and their teams surrounding your broken machine, all ready to help out with advice, labour, tools and spares. We’ve had our rivals work through the night before to help us get back out there. You’re never in it on your own at NG!
Amongst all of those we’ve met there have been some who’ve really gone the extra mile to help us out. Ricky Ross at Front Row Motorcycles, Matt Phillips and family and Jimmers and Paul at Highslide Racing.
A special mention has to be made for our paddock comrades Moron Brothers Racing. We were drawn together in 2003 by the principal of “great minds think alike”, or not as the case may be! We were both in our first season and were the only two teams to entertain the insane idea of sharing one bike between two riders. We have supported each other and shared resources (and the odd drink!) at practically every meeting since. This has been a great help to us and has greatly reduced our workload whilst increasing the number of laughs. Thanks to everyone!
