Road Racing News Podcast Series 4 - Episode 3 - Chimay Rollercoaster

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

As Bon Jovi states It's a Rollercoaster, Circuit De Chimay must be such a fulfilling course to compete around for those that have raced at Belgium's only active street circuit.

Our latest podcast covers the upcoming Classic Bikes, Open Trophy events at Chimay with a focus on ones to watch at both meetings plus there's a bit of background history.

There's also a full round-up of the past weekend's racing including the Ulster Superbike Championship season opener at Kirkistown, the fifth Darley Moor event of 2021 and British F2 Sidecars/EMRA competition at Mallory Park.

Not forgetting positive news a plenty in relation to the Czech TT at Horice and the much anticipated Armoy Road Races, which looks set to feature Synetiq BMW and a certain Michael Dunlop.

Plus of course there's a bamboozoler quiz question this time with a Dakar Rally vibe around it, another for those of you who are super pure road racing enthusiasts!
