Each is racing in the British Motor-Cycle Racing Club Championship and together they are known as the Sussex Racers.

Tim has been leading the way in Rookie 1000s with four out of four wins at the first race weekend at Brands Hatch Indy; a first and a second at Snetterton 300 circuit and two firsts at Silverstone International.

Steve has been pushing hard in the competitive Rookie 600 class with three seconds at Brands hatch Indy, two thirds at Snetterton 300 and three thirds at Silverstone International.

Jim has been finding his way in Rookie Thunderbike Extreme and despite some gremlins with the bike secured his first trophy with a third place at Silverstone International.

The lads have started a Facebook page Sussex Racers to boost their profile and a Crowdfunder page to help raise sponsorship to be able to continue their success.

They are looking for local businesses to help get behind their racing campaign and help bring more trophies back to Uckfield.

Ideally they are looking for financial backing but they would also welcome prizes to raffle to help raise funds.

Benefits for potential sponsors include race weekend tickets and sponsors logos on the bikes.

The lads’ next Home round will be Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit this weekend and home support there would be gratefully received.
