Goodwood Revival 2019

A report by Dave Kay..

 

At the request of the organisers we have attended and raced at the Goodwood revival since 2005 with little success. One of our client’s MV3 bikes, built by MV Meccanica Verghera, won the event in 2013. We achieved top six placing but the win was elusive.

 

 

Having had 6 podiums in 4 years in the I.O.M Classic TT’s, which included 3 wins, 2 seconds and a third, for whatever reason the team was not invited to the 2018 or 2019 races, which amazingly helped win at Goodwood.

In 2019 Black Eagle Racing rebuilt with great care the 2016 MV Triple just for this event. Usually the bike we entered had already been thrashed at the TT for 250 miles. In past years due to race dates, we had not had the time to rebuild the bike for the Revival, so it went as it left the TT to Goodwood.

 

 

With a rebuilt motorcycle and two top riders Lee Johnston and Jon-Boy Lee, the latter who had not raced for 10 years entered the event.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We won races 1 and 2, the win being the average placing of both races, so at least we were victorious. It took 14 years and proved the MV was more than competitive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Victory again

 

All of the team was, to say the least, well pleased and well lubricated.
