TTXGP Euro Championship Begins at Assen
TTXGP returns this coming weekend, Sept 24-25, for the start of the TTXGP Euro Championship at the TT Assen Circuit.
Rob Moon, currently second in the TTXGP UK Championship, has decided that the opportunity to race at TT Assen Circuit is too great a chance to turn down, so he will be entering on Jenny Tinmouth’s bike this coming weekend.
Rob is “delighted and grateful for the opportunity” and will be “busy studying onboard footage to learn the circuit in time for Friday.”
Rob will be joined in the opening rounds of the TTXGP EURO Championship by fellow UK Championship riders, Pete Ward and Annie Seel on the Electric Hussar and Morris Motorcycles machines, respectively.
Keen to get some more track time before the UK Final in Brands Hatch, Pete and Annie will be making the journey over to mix things up on the continent.
