Ride out to Spring Cup TT warm up at Oliver’s Mount

13th April – Meeting from 7:00am at Cafe Portico, departing 8:00am prompt

First ride out of the season in conjunction with V-Duo Motorcycles. Route map will be posted within the next few days. If you are coming along please make sure that you arrive fully fueled and ready to go as we will not be able to wait. We will be heading to Oliver’s Mount to spend the day watching the first road racing meet of the season after which you can make your own way home or join the group for the ride back to Lincoln. Entry to Oliver’s Mount for this event is £20.

With the top riders desperate to try out their new bikes, and others needing signatures for their mountain course licences, to enable them to compete in the Isle of Man, the first “Real Road Race” of the season promises to produce some excellent racing.

William Dunlop and Guy Martin out on the latest Tyco Suzuki’s, Conor Cummings making a welcome return to the Mount, and Ryan Farquhar coming out of retirement to prepare for his TT come back, all in all this meeting should produce racing equally as good as the 2013 Gold Cup.

The up and coming riders are all entered, including James Cowton, Dean Harrison, Ivan Lintin, Phil Harvey, Daley Mathison, Dan Frear and James Neesom, plus a couple of the older riders, Davy Morgan from Ireland and Paul Owen from Wales, plus Mick and Mark Goodings from Doncaster.

With this tremendous entry, and another week to go before entries close the meeting looks like being another great success for the Auto 66 Racing.

Having played her way around the globe and in venues like Ronnie Scotts in the UK we can safely say that Farrah Joy knows her trade. Farrah brings a sophisticated and eclectic mix of well known soul, blues and Jazz Classics influenced by Dinah Washington, Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald among others, we can most certainly expect a thoroughly memorable performance from this Lincoln born artist.

Lincoln Inspired – Auburn Acoustic

Friday 9th May

AUBURN ACOUSTIC

With a new album ‘Nashville’ and a major UK tour supporting the legendary Jefferson Starship, singer-songwriter LIZ LENTEN and her band ‘Auburn’ have been captivating audiences around the country with their unique blend of Americana, blues and roots music.

“…there’s an overarching wholeness to ‘Nashville’…largely due to the grounding effect of the Auburn instrumentalists’ scintillating accompaniment allowing a convention-free singer to take melodic flight…” David Innes (R2 magazine) – 4 stars
