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.”
George uses HM Racing for engine tuning, suspension tuning, dyno services, HMiis ignition systems and STM slipper clutches! Phew! George Clements continued an excellent 2006 season with three wins at Lydden Southern Supermoto. In this series he has now won six rounds, three maximums, with seventeen race wins out of twenty-four.
In the MRO series George is currently sixth in the SM2 Championship and eighth in the Supermotard Championship. At Ingliston showground Scotland, George qualified on pole and tied for third place overall with Zamitt, who only got the podium place due to his better last race position. Next round is at Pembrey, George is the first placed 450 Honda in the open class biased Supermotard Championship and 2nd Honda in SM2. George is looking to take 5th place overall in the SM2 championship at this round and claim his first major podium.
The ACU/AMCA British Championship sees George in tenth place in the SM2 class, having competed in only three rounds. Last round at Teeside George finished 4th just one point away from a podium place.
