Plater injured in enduro crash – from Phil Wain

Steve in better form before the fall

Former British Champion and multiple International road race winner Steve Plater is facing a spell of recuperation after a nasty off-road crash on Monday left him with a fractured C1 vertebrae in his neck.   The crash happened in the Welsh mountains when the Lincolnshire ace fell from his enduro bike and was hit from behind, the front wheel of the following bike hitting him directly at the back of the head with his neck taking the full force of the impact. Fortunately, his Arai helmet did a superb job in protecting his head but when he was assessed at Aberystwyth Hospital later that day, the fracture was diagnosed.  

The assessment thankfully confirmed no further damage, with the C6 vertebrae that Steve damaged in a crash at the 2010 North West 200 completely unscathed but, after being released from hospital on Thursday, Steve travelled to Manchester for further checks and opinion.  

Steve would like to express his thanks to Arai Europe, Acerbis UK for their excellent protection and all of the staff at Aberystwyth Hospital.

Possible 2 day test at Blyton Park

Simon Gilbert is trying to get a list together of sidecar teams who would take part in a 2 day test at Blyton Park (near Gainsborough) end of February/early March.

Simon would have to hire the circuit and get everyone to share the cost – so is looking for at least 10 teams for both days to get the cost down to 300 for the weekend, the more people go the cheaper it will get. This is comparable to a club meeting entry price but of course a load more track time, basically open circuit.

The date is not set yet, this is to gauge interest so speak to Si and when he has a few people interested he will work everything out. You can find more details of Blyton Park on their website, click the logo below.

The dates section

I have started updating the calendar. It is not all on there yet but give me a week or two and most will be there.

The menu sections will change and evolve a bit over the next few weeks as we find what should be there and what doesn’t need to be on there.

At the moment there is the option for All Dates or dates by category. When you have clicked into the calendar you can now search, view by list, month or day and I shall add the relevant websites and venues links to each event as time allows. It should be good.
