As the weekend of the 4th/5th May drew close preparations were as feverish at Darvill HQ, we had been busy bees. Slick had been working his ‘magic’ on the clutch, which was now fully functional now with added Sigma ‘Slipper’ action. We have commissioned new RaceTech forks required for the rigours of the S100 and TT Mountain Course but these would not be ready in time for the next round of the ARA Championship so Slick spent some time rebuilding the HyperPro’s for this round, and WHAT a difference…!
Race day and we were all ready to go; the sound of generators began to kick into life as the clouds were rolling over Jurby Aerodrome. It looked like we were set for another dry but windy race.
We are joined again by Champ who needed just a single signature for his TT Mountain license and our good friend Andy Cowie who would be using his Steelie 600 and Champ’s SuperStock Kawasaki.
This round was again being run in a clockwise configuration giving us a 1.7mile lap and only for the second time (new ACU requirement).
The wind was whipping across the circuit keeping tyres cool and lap times down however Keef and Champ qualified well for the Singles, Twins and Triple race. Our Darvill SV was handling better than it ever had and this was evident in grin on Keef’s face when he made his way back to the paddock. This was repeated for the 650 Championship qualification and just in time for lunch.
