Manx Grand Prix 2013

Posted in Uncategorized on May 24, 2013 by oronero100

Oronero would like to take this opportunity to wish Paul Baleta all the best for his attempt at this years Manx Grand Prix event.

Paul is pictured riding his flat-tracker in our previous post. He has already experienced the delights of competing at the Isle of Man track riding a V-twin, an Aprilia.

Now that twenty five years has passed since the 851 Ducati was initially released for sale it has become eligible for classic racing status. Paul will be taking his SP3 no.507 around the mountain coarse and Oronero will be supplying some specially modified parts for this purpose.

We hope that the weather for this years event is more in keeping with the expectations of the competitors and certainly better than the image that was shown in the previous post also, which was of  Cronk-Y-Voddy Straight taken in March 2013, photo taken by Andrea Lace.

Hibernation

Well the beginning of the year started of reasonably pleasant before the cold harsh winter weather quickly brought disruption to most of the UK. To say that it interfered with composite manufacturing at Oronero would be an understatement, we ground to a halt!

Normally when this happens we revert to preparing plugs for new parts, the mould making materials used are less prone to the affects of temperature, though a times even this was difficult. So in the next few months expect to see some carbon race parts suitable for the Ducati 748 916 and 996 models become available.

It appears that some 851 and 888 race bikes are being built in anticipation of entering the UK ‘Golden Era Suberbike’  championship. However it would seem that the UK winter weather has also delayed their appearance, with some now saying that they will be starting from the 2014 season instead. As enthusiastic as these individuals are, preparing a machine yourself in a cold garage in the depths of a UK winter is difficult, I applaud their attempts and wish them all the best with regards to preparation for next year.

Just for fun!
