Following a series of accidents both on and off the track, Angus Green’s racing career was put on hold in 2009 when he sadly broke his back.
A familiar name to anyone involved in the IG Classic Superbike series on the continent, Angus has spent much of his time building bikes for the competition, making a tentative return to the track at the same time.
However, last weekend Angus made his first appearance at a UK race meeting in 8 years, taking a win in the process.
North Yorkshire’s Croft circuit was playing host to the opening round of the North East Motorcycle Racing Club season, and Angus entered his Kawasaki ZX-7R into the Unlimited Pre-Injection class.
Weather put pay to some of Saturday’s racing as a deluge delayed proceedings for some time, but a dry Sunday gave Angus the opportunity to put his treaded ContiRaceAttack Comp tyres to the test.
The opening race saw Angus take a step on the podium with a 3rd placed finish, but things improved in the second contest of the day with Angus taking a hard fought win and giving him much reason to celebrate on his racing return.
Later this year Angus will be taking his VF1000R, also sporting Continental race rubber, to the IG Classic Superbike round at Spa in Belgium.
