After a year of mixed fortunes in 2015, Steve Moody and the team at Dilligaf Racing have announced their plans for the 2016 season, with a mix of pure road and track action awaiting them and their supporters.
On track, former British Superbike privateer racer Steve will be competing in the EMRA Buildbase Superbike and Superstock 1000 championships at Mallory Park, a circuit he knows like the back of his hand after winning the 2014 Pre-Injection championship with 10 victories in as many races.
This year Steve will be riding on his new Honda Fireblade CBR1000RR SP supplied by Bransons of Yeovil.
On the road racing front, Steve will make a return to the Welsh Open Aberdare Park Road Races, which he entered for the first time in 2015 in very wet conditions.
After a trying two weeks on the team’s Daytona 675R at the most recent Manx GP the team have postponed their plans to race at the Northwest 200 and Isle of Man TT until 2017. The event started really well for Steve and team, as he crept into the top 10 during practice alongside the likes of Michael Dunlop and Ivan Lintin. However, whilst on for a personal best lap during a later practice session, a piston came through the top of the engine, leaving the team frantically searching for a replacement. Ironically, this was in the same spot that the bike broke down in 2014 during the Senior race.
They will however return to the Manx GP this year, with the aim of putting in a much sought after 115mph lap around the famous mountain course, and picking up another Silver Replica.
We are delighted to be able to continue working with Steve and team in 2016, and wish them every success this year!
