On the racing front, three of our UGGLY&Co riders were out in the Far East last week for the annual Macau Grand Prix. Davey Todd on his Burrows Racing BMW, Dom Herbertson on the immaculate Dafabet Racing Kawasaki, and Joey Thompson on his own Seventy-Four Racing by Genertech machine. It was mixed fortunes for the three as they took on the technical, tight, and street circuit around the
former Portuguese colony, now returned as a special administrative region of China. Qualifying on the front row in P2 Davey Todd had a nightmare start to the main race after an oil pipe split causing him to miss the start, however, a red flag for Brian McCormack and Nadieh Schoots on the opening lap brought proceedings to a temporary halt. Brian was relatively ok but Nadieh sustained injuries to her collarbone and foot but is thankfully on the mend. Lincolnshire’s Phil Crowe spotted the issue with the BMW M1000R back in the pit lane and offered a replacement to get the bike up and running for the restart. A full re-run of the race allowed Todd to
take his place on the grid along with Herbertson 15 th and Thompson 18 th . As the lights went out it was pole man Peter Hickman who threw the gauntlet to the chasing pack but only our man Davey Todd had any answer in the early stages before the FHO Racing man pulled clear to win by 28 seconds from Todd and David Datzer. Dom took his best-ever finish in 8th with Joey unfortunately penalised for 30 seconds for starting an inch ahead of his grid slot. As he says, rules are rules but it’s a long way to go to be disappointed.
