Default WDW 848 Misano



848 races at Misano - I did think that I could do practice sessions on the Friday, fly home that night, miss qualifying, and then get back to Italy late Saturday night.
As theres a date clash with my daughters college speech day and prize giving on the Saturday, I was fully prepared to race my heart out from the back of the grid to try and get decent results for the hlins P&H Motorcycles bike on Sunday.
I thought itd be workable even booked the return flight from Leeds to get me back into Italy late on Saturday night.
However, Ive been scuppered by the organisers who are insisting that I cant even line up to race unless I complete a minimum of one lap of the qualifying session.
So, as I dont have a Learjet to pop home, after one lap of Saturdays qualifying in time for the speech day, I wont be racing at Misano.
Obviously, Im a bit sad at the thought of missing such a momentous event as Ducati World Weekend, but hey, one things for sure, therell always be another motorcycle race, but therell only be one daughter's prize giving!
I enjoy racing in the 848 Challenge as theres a friendly family style atmosphere, so when thinking about a replacement rider for the hlins P&H Motorcycles no.121 machine, I didnt have to look too far.
Ive previously coached Claire Lily Myler when she was running her 750, so I know shes a competent rider whos also raced Ducatis before. Its incidental that shes married to my Nephew Ryan, and currently supports him as pit crew in his 848 Challenge quest.
I think its about time this year that Lily put her leathers on, and am very pleased to announce that Claire Lily Myler will be riding the hlins P&H Motorcycles no.121 machine in Italy!
The Misano event is likely to be unique in the respect that with Mr. and Mrs. Jordan riding, for the first time in solo racing, two married couples will be competing on track together.
