BRADLEY SCORES WELL FOR NEW TEAM AT ASSEN

Halesowen rider Bradley Hughes brought a handful of championship points home to his new team when he scored a fine eighth place in the Monster Energy British Motostar championship Cup and also claimed 10th place in the overall British Championship on his first outing for Team Repli-Cast UK Racing at Assen in Holland on Sunday.

Having lost a major sponsor and forced to withdraw from the Donington Park round of the series, it looked as if the 15-year-old’s season was over but after posting details of his predicament on his Face Book page Bradley was contacted by Gary Dawson, team manager of Repli-cast Racing and offered a seat on the team’s 125cc Honda for the remainder of the season.

It was always going to be a difficult weekend for the youngster as he was to travel to Assen in Holland with a new team, race a new bike on an unfamiliar circuit mixed in with a field of Dutch championship riders. But after walking the course on Thursday, Bradley set about learning his way around in free practice on Friday. Having to run in a new cylinder in the first session his lap times were predictably slower than he wanted and with 32 riders in the field, half of which were not in his championship it was a difficult day for Bradley

By the time he began the first qualifying laps he was beginning to get up to speed and posting faster times with every passing lap taking a massive eight seconds from his time set earlier in the day. Although he was faster in the second session the bike developed a quick shifter problem and he spent almost half of the session in pit lane while the team made adjustments to the bike.

With the British and the Dutch championship riders all together on one grid Bradley began his campaign from a seventh row grid position in 25th place. But although the result would be combined the British riders scored their own points and therefore complicated as it was, Bradley was the 10th placed British rider.

As the race began Bradley completed the first lap in 23rd place overall (13th Brit) and continued to make good progress throughout the 12 lap affair. He crossed the finish line in 20th place which scored him six championship points for 10th place in the British Championship. He was the eighth Motostar Cup competitor over the finish line and scored eight championship points in that class - all very confusing but a good result for Bradley on his first outing for the team

BSB Round 8 - Cadwell Party in the Park

Press Release by: Helen Pask

BRADLEY HUGHES – CADWELL PARK


There was a huge disappointment in store for Bradley Hughes at Cadwell Park when he slid off the track at Hall Bends after just four laps of the Lincolnshire track.

Free practice and qualifying had gone well for the 15-year-old Halesowen rider who was third in the final session. The times registered in the dry set the grid for the start of the 12 lap race and Bradley began his campaign from a third row grid position. Just as the riders took up their positions the heavens opened and the expected rain began to fall. The race was delayed to allow the riders to switch tyres and the race subsequently reduced from the original 12 laps to 11.

As the lights went out Bradley got away to a good start maintaining his ninth position on the first lap. He was at the back of a large group of riders all challenging for second place and as the race progressed he prepared to make a move forward. But his race was over after just four laps when he slid from his machine at the tricky Hall Bends section of the course, his first non-finish of the year.

This non-finish sees Bradley lose a place in the overall rider standings and he is now placed ninth in the Motostar Cup and 16th in the Monster Energy British Motostar championship.

The next round is at Donington Park over the weekend of September 7-9 when Bradley will be seeking a top result to boost his points tally and take him back up the rider standings

BSB Round 7 Brands Hatch

Race Report by: Helen Pask


Halesowen teenager Bradley Hughes rode through the pain of cramp to claim eighth place in round seven of the Monster Energy British Motostar Cup at Brands Hatch on Sunday also taking a fine 12th place in the full British Championship section of the race.

The first qualifying session was going well for the young rider but towards the end the engine began to lose power and Bradley ended up in 11th position. The team were forced to replace a piston that had nipped up and opted for a harder compound tyre for final qualifying. But despite shaving a further 1.3 seconds from his lap time Bradley found himself down in 14th place.

“I was eight mph down through the speed traps so we have a lot of work to do before Sunday’s race to try and rectify the problem,” said Bradley.

It was obvious the problem had been solved as Bradley was up to ninth in morning warm-up and posting lap times considerably faster than in qualifying.

As the riders lined up for the start of the 12-lap race Bradley got away to a good start and was soon up to 10th position. But as the race wore on the rear tyre went off and he struggled to stay in control. But he persevered and after a race-long dice with Harry Hartley he just got his front wheel ahead on the last lap to cross the finish line ahead of his rival, the margin being just six hundredths of a second.

“The tyre was ripped to pieces,” said Bradley. “And I was suffering with cramp throughout the race so I am happy to actually finish where I did. I have more points in the bag and seven finishes out of seven race starts so I have to be happy with that.”

After round seven of the Motostar Cup Bradley is comfortably placed in eighth position on 61 points and in the main British Championship is 15th on 34 points.

The next round is at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire over the August Bank Holiday weekend of August 25-27 when Bradley will be relishing the chance to fly the famous Cadwell Mountain. The points are very close and a good result at Cadwell could see the 15-year-old rider move up the rider standings

BSB Round 6 Oulton Park

Race Report by: Helen Pask


BRADLEY HUGHES – OULTON PARK

Halesowen teenager Bradley Hughes rode to sixth place in round six of the 2012 Monster Energy British Motostar Cup (12th in the full championship) at Oulton Park on Sunday. But it could have been so much more if the 15 year-old had not been penalised with a ride through penalty after a jump start which sawhim relegated to last place after rejoining the race from pit lane.

The weekend began with free practice on Friday but with torrential downpours throughout the day there was nothing to be gained from the experience. The rain abated for qualifying on Saturday and Bradley managed to string some fast laps together to finish in eighth place for a second row start to Sunday’s 12 lap race.

But Bradley was a little too keen to get his race underway and jumped the start. He was fourth into the first corner but with a lot of chopping and changing of positions as the riders settled down he was seventh on lap two. He was signaled to come in to do his ride through penalty and had to cruise through the entire length of pit lane before being permitted to rejoin the race.

By this time he was dead last and rode the wheels off the little Honda to play catch up. He ploughed through the back markers making it up to 19th on the third lap and then up to 13th on lap 10. On the final lap Bradley was right with American Rider Xavier Zayat and beat him to the chequered flag just a tenth of a second ahead to snatch 12th place in the main race and sixth in the Motostar Cup which is run within the main championship for riders under the age of 16.

This result moves Bradley to 14th place in the main championship on 30 points and up to seventh in the Motostar Cup on 53 points.

The next round is at Brands Hatch over the weekend of July 20-22 where Bradley will get a chance to actually race at the Kent circuit. The first race of the season was scheduled for Brands Hatch but poor weather conditions caused it to be postponed and relocated to Thruxton the next week

BSB - RD5 - Knockhill

Race Report by Helen Pask:


It was always going to be an uphill task for Bradley Hughes on his visit north of the border to Knockhill in Scotland because apart from being one of the most challenging courses on the racing calendar Bradley’s mechanic was unable to attend and his father was on crutches! But the team soldiered on and with the help of Gary Rimmer who drove the van and Stuart Painter who helped out in the paddock Bradley was given the best chance possible to produce a result and he did just that by scoring a 12th place finish to his race.

Friday’s free practice session for the Monster Energy British Motostar Championship saw Bradley make some changes to the ride height to accommodate his ever growing long legs and he adjusted the saddle height by 2 ½ inches.

This seems to have worked as he posted the sixth fastest time in the wet first qualifying session. However the track was dry for final qualifying and Bradley dropped down the order to ninth although still only 0.4s away from pole position


New for this year is the formation of the grid down to three riders on each row and Bradley began his campaign from row three in ninth place. He didn’t get the best of starts but held onto 10th place through the early laps before being pushed back to 15th on lap 12 of the scheduled 22.

But the race was brought to a premature end when three of the front runners crashed heavily at the hairpin. The result was declared at 17 laps distance and Bradley awarded 12th place in the main championship and seventh in the Motostar Cup.


With the points accrued from the Knockhill round added to the ones already secured, Bradley is now 13th in the main championship on 28 points and eighth in the Cup with 43 points.

“It was a mad end to the race,” said Bradley. “I finished 12th but not really sure until I see the result sheets! I really was hoping it would be wet for the race but it stayed fine for a change!”

The next round is at Oulton Park in Cheshire when the championship returns for its second visit of the year on July 8. On his last visit in May Bradley scored a healthy sixth place and a repeat of that would be very acceptable and would add further to his points tally to move him further up the rider standings

BSB RD4 - Snetterton

DISAPPOINTING DAY FOR BRADLEY AT SNETTERTON

The weekend went from looking promising to ending in disappointment for Bradley Hughes when he suffered a crash in qualifying and then was forced to nurse the bike home in 15th place with clutch problems during the 12 lap race at Snetterton in round four of the 2012 Monster Energy British Motostar Championship and Cup on Sunday.

Bradley made an excellent start to the weekend by posting the fourth fastest lap in the first free practice session. But the 15-year-old Halesowen rider experienced problems with overheating in the second session causing him to drop down the order to ninth.

After making a few changes to the bike he went out for first qualifying but crashed out of the session while holding 11th place. Although he improved his lap times in final qualifying he remained in 11th place and began his campaign on Sunday from a third row grid position.

His troubles began at the start when he discovered the clutch was slipping and he struggled to get the bike off the line. He dropped down the order to finish the first lap in 20th place and began to fight his way through the back markers to secure 10th position within the space of five laps. But as the race progressed so did his troubles and eventually the clutch burnt out leaving Bradley to limp home down in 15th place to salvage a solitary championship point from the race. But it was not all bad news as Bradley scored five championship points in the Cup section of the race as the 11th cup competitor to cross the finish line.

With just the one championship point scored in the main British championship Bradley is demoted down to 11th place in the overall rider standings although the five points scored in the cup see him drop just one place down to eighth.

The next round is at Knockhill in Scotland on June 24 where Bradley will be seeking a top result to move him back in contention with the championship leaders.

BRADLEY HUGHES – OULTON PARK

Halesowen rider Bradley Hughes rode to a fine fourth place in the third round of the 2012 Monster Energy Motostar Cup at Oulton Park on Monday to move to seventh place in the rider standings and to joint seventh place in the main British championship.

Having fitted a new race engine prior to the meeting Bradley spent the first free practice session running it in. But despite encountering some niggling gearbox problems he sailed through his qualifying completing his first session in fourth place. But in final qualifying he once again was held back by a gearbox problem but overcame this to complete the session in sixth place for a second row start to Monday’s race.

As the race got underway mid afternoon on Monday, Bradley took his time to get the tyres warmed up but was soon on the pace moving through to sixth place to latch onto the back of a group of four riders a few yards ahead. It was all exciting stuff with the riders ahead exchanging places throughout the race. Bradley edged nearer and nearer and by the midway stage of the race was right with them.

The television cameras switched from watching the leaders to following the group who had now got on terms with Ryan Watson who was holding second place and Bradley certainly benefited from the exposure. As the five riders approached Lodge for the last time they were as one and the outcome of the race would be determined by who exited the corner first. On the drag to the flag Bradley crossed the finish line in sixth place overall but because two riders ahead of him were ineligible for points in the Motostar Cup he completed that section of the race in a fine fourth place.

“I am really pleased with fourth place,” said Bradley. “I have to thank my main sponsor, Penn White for their continued support and have gone someway to repay them this weekend.”

Bradley moves to seventh in the Motostar cup on 29 points but is only four points away from Ryan Watson who holds third place. He is also placed joint seventh in the main championship on 21 points and another strong result could see him move further up the order.

BRADLEY HUGHES – THRUXTON

Following the cancellation of the Brands Hatch race over Easter, Bradley Hughes finally got his championship challenge underway at Thruxton over the weekend when he scored a brace of eighth places in the double header Monster Energy Motostar Cup British Championship.

The qualifying results from Brands Hatch were implemented for the rescheduled race to be run over 10 laps of the notoriously bumpy and fast 2.3-mile Hampshire circuit and Bradley began the race from a third row grid position.

He took up 14th place in the first half of the race before making a move forward and eventually completing the 10 laps in eighth place in the Cup and 10th place overall. (The Motostar Cup takes place within the main British Championship for younger riders under the age of 16.)

Qualifying for the Thruxton race took place in differing weather conditions and the bumpy Thruxton tarmac played havoc with the set up on the 125cc Honda. Despite suspension problems the Halesowen teenager was running in sixth place in the first session but the red flag halted his progress and at the restart he encountered a problem with the clutch. Nonetheless he held onto 11th place and hoped for another dry run in the final session. But it wasn’t to be, the practice was wet and Bradley was unable to improve on his earlier times and so began his race from the third row. He soon moved through to take up 10th place but was demoted by William Dunlop who went past two laps later.

The red flag halted the race and a new race was called to run over just five laps. Grid positions were as race positions at the stoppage and once again Bradley began the race third the fourth row. This time he moved straight up to 11th place and crossed the finish line in 11th place overall but scoring eighth in the Motostar cup.

This fine set of results put Bradley up into seventh place in the Cup points with 16 points scored over the two races and 10th in the main championship on 11 points.

Tony Hughes (Bradley’s father) said: “This has been a difficult weekend for us; we always knew we would be out powered here because of the nature of the track. But we gave it our best shot and despite clutch problems Bradley was able to score well.”

The next round is at Oulton Park in Cheshire over the May Bank Holiday weekend of May 7/8/9.

DISAPPOINTMENT FOR BRADLEY AT BRANDS HATCH

Halesowen youngster Bradley Hughes left Brands Hatch disappointed and empty handed after his race was cancelled because of the worsening weather conditions and a slippery track.

The 15 year old Windsor High School student was anticipating a top result in round one of the 2012 Monster Energy Motostar British championship and had sailed through his qualifying. He was 10th fastest in first practice and despite encountering some niggling problems held onto 11th place in the first qualifying session.

Final qualifying was a washout and Bradley was unable to improve on his time set earlier in the day. But at least the session gave him the opportunity to iron out the power problems ahead of morning warm-up.

Easter Monday brought heavy rain as the riders prepared for the short warm up session. But Bradley excelled in the tricky conditions and ran in sixth place for most of the session before dropping back slightly to eighth. He was looking promising for a top result in the 22 lap race that was scheduled for later in the day.

But the rain persisted and was accompanied by a strong side wind. Hold ups and crashes in earlier races left the track in a dangerously slippery condition leaving the race director no alternative but to postpone the 125cc race to be run as an additional race at Thruxton on Saturday at 5.20pm over 10 laps.

Bradley’s father Tony commented: “We are all understandably disappointed not to race today but the right decision was made by the race director as conditions were so bad. Rider safety has to come first and the track conditions along with the high winds made it impossible for the race to take place.

“We move on to Thruxton this weekend and hope to begin our campaign in earnest there.”

Free practice and qualifying take place on Friday and Saturday ahead of the 10 lap rescheduled race from Brands Hatch at 5.20pm. The14 lap second round race on Sunday will start at 3pm.

Club 36 : Snetterton Test and Derby Phoenix Mini Thunderbike race 16/17/18th March 2012 : Report from Tony Hughes : Photos from Superbike Snapper.

We arrived on Thursday afternoon to blue sky and around 16 degrees, you could have been at anyone of the Spanish Circuits ready for testing the following day. Friday morning however was in total contrast overcast with a strong south east wind and around 6 degrees, first couple of sessions went well and Brad looked pretty quick in his group up to 600cc, didn't take long for him to get back in his stride. Working along side was Colin from 100% suspension, as we have new Ohlins & Showa units for this season, the lap times kept coming down. Until Bradley pushed to hard on the front end flicking through the esses, lost the front and went down, due to the cold track temperatures.


Brad was ok just his pride hurt and scuffed his new PennWhite leathers, he picked the bike up and managed to ride it back to pit lane, only minor cosmetic damage and he was soon back out after lunch. The afternoon went even better pushing on taking chunks of his lap times and managing to get down to his last years pace, even in the cold conditions.

Saturday & Sunday, Bradley was racing with Derby Phoenix in the Mini Thunderbike class, the weather for the entire weekend has been wet & cold, difficult conditions with first heavy rain and poor visibility and then creasy drying track, so a good all round test

A good solid start to the season taking his first Win and two 2nd place podiums. Gaining more and more confidence with every lap, battling with 650's & 400's gave Bradley a real confidence boost, trying to keep with them down the massive straights and then out riding them in the corners on the new Snetterton 300 layout which is just under 3 miles long.

We would like to thank, 100% Suspension, PennWhite, Superbikesnapper and Gary & Karen for giving up their weekends racing at Brands Hatch to help us out.
