After his accident and a DNF on Sunday Ivan could only manage a seventh place. Here you can see the bike without a screen and carrying a few scratches and Ivan feeling a bit second hand so he did well to keep going.

Ivan's Crash at Broadford

Saturday 11/4/15 Victorian Road Race Titles Broadford Victoria.

It is often said that racers have either crashed or are about to crash, well Ivan Hoey has had his crash at Broadford this weekend. Thankfully he is ok and the bike, although a little worse the wear, is ready to go again.

Here it is all busted up

And here with the handle bar and lever replaced and the busted screen removed it's ready to go again. After a visit to the medical centre Ivan was given the all clear to continue racing, Here's hoping his luck holds for the big race tomorrow.

Barry Sheene Festival of Speed

The BSFOS was on last weekend and our man Ivan did kick some butt by winning the P4 750 class.

He got the trophy to prove it, well done Ivan.

For those who went along to watch the BSFOS Ivan had 10 free tickets but only two club members contacted him prior to the event so they went begging. I guess that's the way it goes when you ask for volunteers.

Thanks to Herb Conlon and Mark Peatman who did volunteer.
