The 4th and 5th of May saw the Sorrymate Team riders head to the circuit at Pembrey for the next round of the National 600 Endurance, with riders Colin Norris and Warren Verwey looking to defend their title which they won in 2013 on ContiRaceAttack Slick tyres.
Initial conditions during testing were cold, sub ten degrees, and many riders struggled with the grip levels when testing out on track but it didn’t take long for the weather to improve and for Colin and Warren to find their rhythm. Following his crash in the previous round at Cadwell Park, Colin wasnt quite up to fitness but a strong performance put them in 3rd place on the starting grid for the three hour endurance contest.
With Warren setting a personal best lap time at Pembrey, and Colin putting in a great performance on the bike despite his fitness problems the team worked their way up into second behind the Prime Factors racing team to leave them 2nd overall in the championship with plenty more action to come this year, with the next round being at Angelsey on 24th May.
Following the National 600 Endurance the Sorrymate Junior team made up of riders Fergus Dalgarno, Phil Paxton and Karen Brown took to the track in the Clubman 600 Endurance championship riding on ContiRaceAttack Comp street legal race tyres and put in a fantastic performance which saw them take 1st place on the podium at the Carmarthernshire circuit leading the race from start to finish. The junior team ended up three laps ahead of their nearest rivals by the end of the race.
Some more great riding to all those at Sorrymate, we cant wait for the next round of endurance action at Angelsey later this month!
