Another step forward on the progress of Kev’s fuel bike. We found the time and funds to get the engine over to Jon at Webster Race Engineering to get the chassis underway. His knowledge and enthusiasm is second to none which is clear to see in the construction so far.

Nitrous Junkie Season Review 2017

How we are able to write a season review when none of us have been racing is amusing. It’s been as much of a busy season as ever. Just like it would have been if there were the three of us racing competitively! How does this happen?? I will try to make this as interesting as I can. We are asked what is happening with various developments – so here goes.  Jake got an unconditional offer to study Computer Networking at Sheffield University, and is going to be concentrating on this, so won’t be racing for a while. No doubt at some stage will be doing some run wots, on Kev’s old Bandit which is being rebuilt and redeveloped at present. He passed his driving test the week before he left, so was able to drive himself up there. Very proud of this chap! Jake and the team also crewed… Read More »

There are also rumours that Kev may have a go on Rockets funny bike too! Jake has out grown Junior Drag Bike in more ways than one. Jake is nearly 18 now, and over six foot, the Junior bike is far too small for him. The plans are for him to be out on Kev’s old Bandit in due course. Talking to Funny Bike Racer, Dave Peters (Rocket) who we are crewing for… Read More »

Kevin, as you know bought the fuel bike, “The Purple Princess” from Steve Carey and after taking a good look at the chassis without the engine in, rather sensibly decided that a new chassis was definitely in order, due to a terrible crash that Steve had on it at Dragstalgia in 2013.  As you can appreciate, these things cannot be bought off the shelf, and are not cheap.  It is a work in progress, but things are moving in the right direction. Pulleys have been made by Portobello Precision, and he has had a meeting  with Jon Webster  at Webster Race Engineering ( and  Dejan Jankovic from Portobello Precision (Find him on Facebook) to talk about the next stage of the build. The engine has been rebuilt, and is sitting pretty waiting for the chassis and various other components to be made. To get the build right first time is what is imperative.… Read More »
