Number 96 by Andrew-and-Seven Number 96 by Andrew-and-Seven
Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire August 2007 during rounds 21 and 22 of the Bennetts British Superbikes Championship.

Number 96 in the British Supersport class is Paul Young on his self run Paul Young Racing Triumph 675.

Paul is a friend of mine since I met him 2 years ago after ordering the road going 675 before production started. The dealership I ordered through is called Jack Lilley and they sponsor Paul - you can see the JL logo on his back. We set up a supporter's club and met him that way. He helped design the bike and is a test rider for the Triumph factory so is almost a celebrity really.

During last year - both our first years doing this although Paul has been a racer for more years than he'll care to remember - I helped him a lot in the garage as he was usually without mechanics, and so we always stop and have a chat. Some of my pics are on his website PaulYoungRacing.com.

This actual pic was taken from a rare vantage point accessed by tramping through nettles and trees, then the trick was to not fall on the track while leaning over the bank. It was technically difficult because there was no real 'lead' time to follow the bikes - they just appeared!

And I imagine this will take me over the 10,000 page view threshold too, which makes it doubly special :)

Happy Xmas all
