welcome to the march edition of scootering

“Tick followed tock, followed tick followed tock, followed tick. Good things come to those who wait…” You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone… goes the old saying. How many times in the past did we hear the rally-goers cry: “But this rally has become stale, we want more variety at the event, and new locations!” etc. Hot topics were discussed at the BSRA committee meeting in Brid, regarding the question of ‘updating’ the rally formats and venues, in order to meet the demands from those attending, while balancing conflict with local pub owners who were cashing in on the success of the rallies. Next came all the associated upheaval of moving Brid to a new location, and all the work that came with it… it all seems such a…

back in britain

It’s been a year since Scomadi unveiled their new factory in Thailand. A lot’s happened over that time but, if you’re quick, you might just find a Scomadi on the floor of a British showroom. It was last March when Scomadi threw open the doors of their new factory. The new facility, just outside Pattaya, was all ready to gear up for volume production and then Covid hit. Not only were Thais ordered into lockdown but the supply of components was also interrupted. It’s been a difficult time for the Scomadi team but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. It had always been Scomadi’s intention that the first batches of machines to come off the line would be delivered to Thai dealers. After all it’s easier to…

royal alloy tg side-panel flashings

The T Royal Alloy TG model is making a big impact on the scene and in the Royal Alloy community c . Its likeness to the Lambretta Series S 2 gives it a full-on classic retro look and a opens up plenty of custom opportunities. John J Randall is not only the owner of a TG T 300S, he’s also the author of the TG Owners O ’ Club Facebook page and keen Royal Alloy A enthusiast. To support the period look oof his TG, John designed a set of side-panel flashings similar to those seen on the Series 2 and commissioned a local printing company to produce them as chrome effect peel-off flashings, which are simple to apply. The flashings have been endorsed by Royal Alloy’s CEO Stephen Oliver…

sad start to the season

We’d all hoped that the coming season would quickly banish all memories of 2020 to the history books. Sadly things haven’t worked out that way and a number of early events have already been reluctantly cancelled by disappointed organisers. The most high profile of these is the BSRA Scarborough National, which was due to be held over the Easter weekend of April 2-5. The 2020 National at Whitby was an early casualty to Covid last year and any tickets carried forward from that rally will still be honoured for any future BSRA event. It’s very easy to criticise the decision to cancel something that’s still a couple of months away but, as we’ve said before, a major rally isn’t organised overnight. For BSRA there are contracts to sign, risk assessments to…

rookie racer 2021

It’s that time of year again when scooter racers are eagerly getting ready for the forthcoming BSSO season, which may well encounter a few disruptions like there were in 2020. Time will tell! Having followed rookie racers for the last two seasons once again we can announce another for 2021. This time it’s the turn of Kieran Reece Kearney who will be entering the production class on a Lambretta GP. The 32-year-old from Telford has no previous race experience and admits it’s going to be a steep learning curve. Unfazed by the task that awaits him Kieran already has his production machine ready thanks to help from Justin Offland (rookie racer 2019) who he will be racing for under the LJ Racing 17 banner, Justin’s team. Good friends, it was…
