Rob McNealy had a fantastic weekend at Lydden, finishing fifth overall in the ‘Lord of Lydden’ event on his Supermoto bike! Giving away well over a hundred b.h.p. to the opposition, Rob rode his Husky Sport / McNealy Brown 530cc Husqvarna in spectacular style to record a fine third and two second places in the Thunderbike class to compliment his fine ‘Lord of Lydden’ result.
Rob was able to exploit the poor weather conditions using his Supermoto experience to make up for the fact he was riding a bike almost half the capacity, producing a third of the power of some of his competitors. Probably the most impressive statistic of the day was the fact that during the final leg of the Lord of Lydden, Rob’s best lap time of 47.69s was only 1.08s slower than Steve Mercer’s 46.507!
Steve Smith of HM Racing said “It has taken a long time to develop the 530 Husky that we have done in conjunction with Vaughn and Rob. The bike started life as a carburated 450, that we have converted to fuel injection along with the capacity increase to 530cc and an offset cylinder. 2009 has been a frustrating year for Rob, with reliability issues costing him results in Supermoto. We appreciate Team McNealy’s perseverance and are pleased to see the bike perform to the level we were targeting.”
Joe the son of HM Racing Dave Carnell, rode Vaughan McNealy’s Husky 450 moto to victory at Rockingham on the 17 October 2009. Joe rode superbly to record three wins from four starts. This was only Joe’s second road race meeting since switching from Supermoto racing. The Husqvarna 450 was built by HM Racing for Vaughan’s son Rob to compete in the Thundersport GB championship. After the meeting Joe said “ I’d like to thank Vern for the use of the bike, and my dad and my mechanic Mickey for all their help” Joe hopes to gain his Clubman racing licence as quickly as possible in order to compete in the 2010 Bemsee Mini Twins Championship, aged just fifteen.

Report by Husky Sport Team Manager Vaughan McNealy HM Racing tuned riders Rob McNealy (Husky Sport Husqvarna) and George Clements (TRM Honda) occupied the top two podium steps in the expert class at the latest round of the Southern Supermoto Championships held at Lydd Raceway over the weekend.
With George taking two wins on Saturday and Rob three wins on Sunday, a clean HM Racing sweep was only prevented by Rob picking up a puncture with a lap to go whilst leading race one on Saturday. (HM Racing don’t do tires but if they did we probably wouldn’t get punctures!).
With George and Rob currently placed 4th and 6th respectively in the British Supermoto 450 Championship with one round remaining and confirmation that for the second year running George has been selected to represent Great Britain in the under 21 Supermoto des Nations team, HM Racing are still providing continued success within Supermoto for engine, suspension and dyno services, along with STM clutches and HMiis products.
Rob Mac winning at Lydd, and below his entry in the Graham Noyce look-alike competition!
