Young rider, Olie Linsdell and his team, Team Flitwick Motorcycles, have announced their plans for the 2013 season. Splitting their time between classic racing and the modern classes, the team are supplying an additional rider for the first time since Nigel Davies rode the Flitwick machines at the 1999-2000 TT races.
In the TT, Olie will ride the SMV Engineering R6 in the Supersport races, and the Steve Bond/Flitwick Motorcycles Fireblade in the three larger classes. He will then try his hand at the Suzuki V-Strom racer during the lightweight race at the end of the week.
The team will then return to the Island at the end of August for the inaugural Classic TT, where Olie will field a Paton; before entering the 350cc on a Roger Winfield’s 350 Honda or an Aermacchi. He will also be entering the Classic Superbike TT onboard an FZ750, which has been rebuilt after a crash in 2010 at Bishopscourt.
Competing in three races means Olie is one of very few riders entering every class he is eligible for and while all the plans are in place for the team, they could well be threatened if they aren’t able to find enough funds.
