As the winter break drags on at last there is a bit of news to pass on to those following draperRacing. While there will be no solos next year the team will still be in the BSB paddock next year supporting Simon Gilbert in the Sidecar Championship in which he finished seventh this year with Jack Tritton in the chair. In 2019 Jack will be taking at least a year out to concentrate on the family's Karttak at Cromer where he is the circuit manager.
This year's 1000cc Yamaha LCR outfit has now gone to its new home in Australia and with the new 600cc Adolf outfit collected from Holland and now being sorted ready for the new 600cc Championship next year the only thing left was to sort out the ballast for the sidecar! Step forward 31 year old Brad Gorrie from Melbourne, Australia. Brad has got a wealth of experience as his CV shows and will be an excellent replacement for Jack as they attack the new championship with everyone on equal machinery.

Round 6 Brands HatchAs we now sit back and wait for the winter to rush by and the 2019 season to begin wherever that will take you here is a look back at draperRacing's 2018 season. Overall it was a good season for the team but certainly at times a trying one as well, probably the one weekend that really stands out for all the wrong reasons is the second Oulton Park round when in the Supersport class Tommy's bike went through four motors but such was the determination that the midnight oil was burnt and on Sunday he was on the grid and finished in the points. However it was not all bad for Tommy and in very tricky conditions he certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons in qualifying at Silverstone when at one time he was second overall before settling for fifth on the grid. In July Tommy and Aaron did the Cadwell Park Time Attack and finished the first day with Tommy first and Aaron second in the 600cc class, on the Sunday Tommy won the class but his dad Bill had to collect the trophy as Tommy was laying in the medical centre after crashing at the approach to the Mountain with a dislocated shoulder. The following weekend at Brands Hatch for the first of two rounds on the full Grand Prix circuit it was obvious that Tommy was in a lot of pain and the wise decision was made for him to withdraw from race two and try and get fit for Thruxton two weeks later. In the sidecar class Simon and Jack’s season also got off to a bad start with DNFs and breakdowns but then it turned around and they were soon showing everyone just what they were capable of. After the second round they languished down in sixteenth place in the championship but finished up seventh at the end. At Assen Eamon Mulholland deputised for Jack who was on karting duties elsewhere. Aaron was more fortunate and overall he had a brilliant season taking third in the Superstock 600 championship, he looked like he might just win the race at the first Oulton Park round but after the Safety Car went in he was closing right up on Ryan Vickers when he fell at Shell Oils hairpin but at Snetterton he became the first rider to actually lead Ryan but in the end he had to settle for second. He became a regular visitor to the podium this year. ... See MoreSee Less

draperRacing recently supported the Stroke Association's fundraiser at Castle Combe where a host of sports cars were giving taxi rides to the generous public. Paul and Bill took turns in taking passengers for their five laps of Castle Combe in Paul's Radical car, powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa engine. Also there was Justin in his Fisher Fury, Martin in his BMW and Noel took the wheel of Paul's Audi RS6 when Paul wasn't in it Steve could be seen thrashing his ancient Ford Cortina around and there is one lone shot of Neil in his red Porsche. There are a few other cars in this album but I have to admit I have no idea who they are. It goes without saying that as this is a draperRacing album the draperRacing Radical gets the lions share although you will spot a couple of others here as well. An enjoyable day but also a freezing cold day as well. ... See MoreSee Less
