Harry, a young guy for our sport at just 23 is full of enthusiasm and anticipation for the coming season. Speaking to Marion from the last EMRA round at Mallory Park, way back when the sun still shone, a bit.
I take myself back up the road to Bishop Auckland to meet with Lee and Mike Crawford to discuss what, on the surface was not a great season.
I came away dazed at what they had been through and with even more respect for this team.
As ever, my thanks to all that helped me make this show,

To all of the Maisie 100 family and supporters,
Without your amazing support and craziness for taking part in the Maisie 100, Maisie wouldn't have had the amazing input of energy and motivation you provided her to be the Maisie we know today. However, 'sunshine all the time makes a desert'.
Maisie passed away in her sleep Friday (13th) with us all around her, and as we said our goodbyes a cheeky Maisie smile formed on her beautiful little face.
Maisie was so very grateful for all of the kind messages and support you gave her and without you all as a family we wouldn't have been able to have had the amazing memories of Italy and the experience.
The money that was raised allowed us to take Maisie on holiday, provided her with everything she asked for and wanted to do. Without it all we wouldn't have had the freedom to fulfill Maisie's wishes; from these of which we have made some life long memories.
We are so very grateful for you all and being part of our lives. From something negative a positive will always show through. In this case, this is all of you.
The funeral arrangements will be posted on this page when we know, for anyone wishing to attend.
Love Kerry, Iain and Harriet x

Sometimes life throws you what the yanks call a 'curve ball', sometimes it's a bad thing and sometimes it's someone like Jayne Morris.
I liked her from the first; she's a little bit boisterous and certainly knows how to have a good time but behind that is a very shrewd and powerful thinker who is not afraid of hard work!
We in the BHR need a new Chairman and Jayne has been nominated for the post. Please take an hour to listen to this show and find out just why I think this girl has the qualities to get this club under control and back at the forefront of Great British Club Racing!
I would like to offer you this little fact, when I had my head shaved for charity a month ago, Jayne took a collection bucket and worked all day and into the night and raised £703 on her own! There are folk that talk a good job and then there are leaders like Jayne Morris.

The 10th and final round of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British F1 Sidecar Championship in association with the Molson Group was held on the 16 – 18th October at the famous Brands Hatch GP Circuit.

With double points available at this round and with the team sitting in 13th, it was all to play for.

Slow Phil's head shave for charity took pace last weekend at the Cadwell Park Sidecar Bonanza.
From all the accounts I've heard and looking at the state of the old boy now it seems to have been a great success (loving the combover Phil), but of course we're going to give it one last push for a little bit more of your hard earned cash - all for good causes! The buckets that were passed around at the weekend have raised far more than the total on the page linked below, Phil will fill us in on the full total very soon..
