Inspired by kiwis like Hugh Anderson and Ginger Malloy, but born in the wrong era, I'm heading over to Europe to live my own racing dream.

This kiwi is on his way to Europe to show them that kiwi's can truly fly! Inspired by stories of the Continental Circus of the 70s, 80s and 90s, as well as successful New Zealand racers such as Hugh Anderson (4x 50cc and 125cc world champion), Ginger Malloy (2nd place World GP500), Bruce Anstey (13 IOMTT wins) to name a few. I'm heading over to experience for myself what the racing world can offer. I'll be competing in the European Freetech 50 Cup racing with Team Wobben on a 125GP style chassis.

Racing is expensive, and even in the small capacity classes the insurance, international competition licences, entry fees and travel gets out of hand pretty quickly. Thank you for any small contribution you make, it's truly appreciated!

The Freetech 50 Cup

Between 1962 and 1983, 50 Grand Prix was world championship status. In 1984 50GP was removed and 80GP continued until 1989, the year I was borne. In 2018, the Freetech 50 Cup is the closest thing we have to a highly competitive 50GP championship. With very few rules to encourage the wild machine development of the 70s, and run by a number of highly enthusiastic Dutch racers, it's a class which hosts some tense battles to the line. This year there will be 5 rounds across Germany, Netherlands and Poland.

The adventure

I'll be regularly posting photos and video along the way for you all to enjoy. On board races, photos from pit lane, and bike profiles from all the crazy machines.
