welcome to the november edition of scootering

By the time this edition hits the newsstands it’ll be the end of October and I’ll be planning my trip to Brid. It doesn’t feel that long ago since I was planning my trip to the first rally of the season at Whitby back in March. Where has the time gone? The season just seems to fly by and before we know it, it’ll be winter again! Of course I’m just looking ahead, planning months in advance is in my nature, and the season is far from over with events like Mablethorpe and Warmwell to name but a couple in November alone, and it won’t be long before it’s our very own Scooter World event in January. So plenty to look forward to yet. Still, the cycle of winter maintenance, projects…

gav joins the 100mph club

At the ACU British national records meeting at Elvington on September 18 Gavin Watson not only established an official record for a two-way mean average time, but also set the fastest one-way speed this year on a Lambretta. The two-way mean average, taken from the best run completed each way, gave Gavin an average speed of 104.9mph which has established an official ACU record in the 300cc scooter class. It must be noted that this is the first year this class has been run so Gavin has established the record. Next year will be interesting as a whole clutch of riders attempt to break it. During the record attempt Gavin made several runs on his cut-down sprinter over the weekend and achieved a top speed of 110.921mph, backing it up with two…

new 35+ bhp performance package soon on offer!

In an unusual move, a new performance package is about to be brought to market using EXISTING components and with a very specific ‘hi-level power spread’ tune. While a few companies are focusing on manufacturing brand new bespoke kits and components, one very sharp individual has managed to combine the exact blend of items required, along with a few specific modifications, to produce a 238cc Lambretta performance package. Riders returning from a jaunt on the test bike have been noted as describing the power delivery as ‘the Holy Grail’ and ‘remarkable’. The package, which consists of cylinder kit (inc head and piston), 62/115 race crank, special reed block, a tour exhaust, bearings, seals and a 27mm carb (yes 27mm) has been seen to hit 38bhp and 27lb-ft in testing, but the…

return of a champion

As the saying goes ‘there’s life in the old dog yet’ and retired Lambretta racer Mike Davis is proving the point. After an 18 year absence he is returning to the track to compete in the 2017 BSSO championships. Mike had a successful and dominating time on track during the 1990s. Having started his racing career in 1994 in the highly competitive Group 6 class, he quickly established himself as a front runner and won the class that same year. He went on to win it again in 1995 and 1996 as well as the Euro Challenge cup. His final season in 1998 saw him switch to the full bodied Group 4 class which he won and in doing so became overall ACU champion. Not only is Mike a talented and natural…
