With the last ACU event of 2016 out of the way we are now officially the winners of ACU Funnybike championship. And to make it a hat trick, we also took the Shakespeare County Raceway championship and the Santa Pod Racers club championship.
A pretty successful year then, and not just because of the various race wins, but because - at nearly every single event we entered the bikes gone quicker and faster. An unbelievable start for the bike, which only made it's debut a little over 12 months ago.
I've already forgotten about the hundreds of hours spent in the cellar creating it, the hours on the PC looking for tube, blocks of Aluminium, toilet roll tubes and double sided sticky tape. Then designing all the parts, the swarf in my hair, pockets and socks and sometimes -even in the fur of our Dogs!
The Bopchop team are: Me, my partner Sam Kenny and her brother Stuart kenny, with special guest appearances from Tom Kenny, Benji Crossley, Peej, Justas and Jason. Without them all i'd not even be able to get the bike out of the van.
And we owe a lot Vik and Arge for being the hosts of bopchop HQ, to Roger Upperton for endless advice and help with broken engine stuff, Stu Crane for sending me 1.05 second 60ft Clutch parts and setup info and the whole of drag racing for being so awesome.
