VISIT TO JG SPEEDFIT at BSB SILVERSTONE - Sept 2018

On Saturday, 8th September, 27 OMC members were treated to an afternoon with JG Speedfit at the Silverstone BSB round.
Greeted at the JG Speedfit hospitality unit by OMC member Gary Tingley and Team Principal Pete Extance, we had an enjoyable lunch and treated to a trip down memory lane from Ron Haslam who shared some of his legendary stories. He was followed by Rav (BBC presenter) who was also very entertaining.
After lunch, bellies full, we were treated to a pit tour with Pete Extance which was extremely interesting and much appreciated by the group, especially as the Team were preparing the bikes for the afternoon’s qualifying sessions. Pete gave us a very comprehensive insight into the ‘ins and outs’ of what is involved and happily answered all the questions thrown at him.
It was a most enjoyable day and a big thank you to Gary Tingley for organising the event and to Pete Extance and his Team for affording us their hospitality.
