Debate and discussion about the feeder classes of MotoGP, including the fabulous 250s, the thrilling 125s, and the madness that is the Red Bull Rookies

This project started as a rolling chassis designed and entirely built by my company Tigcraft It was then passed on to the customer and after a while simply faded away
much to my chagrin. No one has ever asked me to build a Moto3 since. So I have built one. On Saturday May21st 2016 having turned a wheel for the first time the previous
day my new Mahindra powered Moto 3 ridden by Tom Booth Amos won the HEL Motostar Moto3 race at Brands Hatch BSB setting the fastest lap in the process.
As I am now retired everything was made in my small workshop using a tube bender an inverter Tig welder and my small Chinese lathe+ an old bloke with boundless enthusiasm. For years I have looked on this excellent forum and cringed every time I looked at this stillborn project. This proves that actions speak louder than words.

When you write a post, there's a small button just left of center - Img

Click that, and insert the location of the photo between the tags, like so:

I've put spaces between the i, m, and g so that the software won't execute the command.

With no spaces, the above looks like this (I like your shirt :D ) :
