Team Daemon Racing
News From 2000


December 19 Some stuff for sale.
December 13 Not a lot of news to report lately.  The team is busy making preperations for the 2001 season.  Bikes are being worked on, proposals being sent out, all the usual off-season activities!

October 1 The final LRRS weekend of the year has come and gone.  :-(  The team was greated by great weather, although a bit chilly in the mornings, and a great time.  Only one little mishap, Bruce got helped off the track in turn one during the start of LW Sportsman, one "mechanical" (Kevins new bike was too bent to race) and one off-road excursion (Scott decided to see what was on the outside of turn 9, but kept the bike on two wheels!). 

After this weekend, TDR now has 4 expert racers, Scott now has enough points and races under his belt to move to expert! Way to go Scott!

Check out all the action in the Report section, and check out the images in the gallery.

September 4 The LRRS fall roundup was a blast! Bruce competed in both the LRRS races and the flat track races that were going on, getting a 2nd in flat track and a 3rd in Super Singles!  Bruce also ran the fastest laps he has run all year!
Scott met with a little less luck, lunching his transmission on the last lap of GP Singles, after a close to a year hiatus from racing.
Thanks to the great generosity of fellow racer Micky Curry, Paul was able to  race on a borrowed F3. He came home with an 8th and a 10th, running just 2 seconds slower than his fastest times!
Kevin also had a great weekend finishing 4th in Productions Twins, against bikes with 17" wheels and running modern rubber, while he is running bias ply tires on 16" rims.  Way to go!!
August 28 Well, Paul was looking really good at Pocono, qualifying on the 10th row (out of 16) with a time of 1:48.781 for the Formula USA Sportbike Race, over 3 seconds faster than his best time the year before!  Finding over 2 seconds during the qualifying session, Paul was confident he would be running in the 46's during the race.  Unfortunately, with only 4 laps to go, Paul lost it in turn 1 after passing two bikes on the brakes. Paul and the F4 left the track and then tumbled in the gravel.  Paul is fine, just bruised up a bit, but the bike is going to need some work.

Read all about it in the Report section, and check out the images in the gallery.

August 23 Paul leaves in the morning for Pocono, and the Formula USA races this weekend!  You can check out the races LIVE on the web, and tape delayed on CBS on October 1st!
August 21 Would you believe that the team was greeted by a near picture perfect weekend weather wise this past weekend?  With the only exception being a brief shower late Friday night, it was sunny and cool all weekend!  Read all bout the weekend in the Race reports, and check out the action in the Gallery!
July 31 The sixth race weekend comes to a close.  Once again, the team was greeted by a wet and wild weekend.

June 11 The third race weekend of 2000 has come and gone.  While there was one crash (Bruce lowsided in turn 4), there were also a lot of best times pulled this weekend. You will be able to read all about the weekend in trhe Race Reports, which will be posted shortly.
May 29 Not content with just roadracing, Bruce made his debut as a flat-tracker at Jolly Roger Motosports Park in E. Lempster, NH and came away with two fourths! Way to go Bruce!
May 22 TDR emerges from the "weekend from hell" triumphantly!  Even though the weather did not cooperate, the races ran long, the vintage bikes oiled the track, it seemed like every race was redflagged....twice, the TDR races came through with flying colors.  Read all bout it in the Race Reports and check out the pictures in the Gallery.
May 15 The TDR Showcase at Robinsons ACE Hardware was a huge success.  Even though mother nature tried to dampen our spirits by dampening our bodies, a great time was had by all. Several of our riding buddies made the trek out to say "Hi" and hang out for a while, and many of the Robinsons customers came over to learn a bit about roadracing!  We hope to something like this again! Check out the action in the Gallery section.
