These Gals Ain't Coming Over !!
Dwight David Mitchell, M & A Racing, will once again contest the Isle of
Man TT races in 2002 after last years cancellation due to the foot and mouth
epidemic in the UK. Practice for the 2002 event is scheduled to start on
Saturday the 25th May and continue through the week with the first of eight
races taking place on Saturday the 1st June.
The team is pleased to
partner with MV Agusta to ride the new F4S at this year's event. The name MV
Agusta evokes memories of a bygone age where nearly every race winner, every
world champion rode the same type of motorcycle - MV Augusta. It is the most
successful name in motorcycle road racing and has won more championships than
any other motorcycle brand. With 75 world championships, 270 Grand Prix
victories no other manufacturer has equaled their record.
spent the whole winter enhancing already spectacular motorcycles, which Dwight
likes to refer to it as "taking the bikes to an even higher level". The
motorcycles were stripped, parts were ordered or fabricated, fiberglass was
painted and mounted, Dyno test were done, and now it's time to go racing. For a
full break down of all the work performed please contact us.
Dwight formed a team of Americans which captured the ACU International Club
Team Award in the 600 Supersport TT which is one of 8 different machine
classes. This year Dwight is not fielding a multi-rider team. Just to complete
the race is considered an accomplishment but this year he is looking to
concentrate more on racing and less on team management so that he can bring
home an individual replica to go along with the silver one he won in the team
The race, which is extremely dangerous and difficult, is
conducted on a mountain circuit of ordinary roads. This is real road racing,
and there is simply nothing like it anywhere in the world. It attracts
competitors and fans from every corner of the globe and is arguably the most
unique and exciting of all-motorcycling experiences.
Dwight, the middle
of three children, works as an international computer consultant. This has
allowed him to visit many different countries. His wife Eva, who is also the
team manager among many other things, is from Spain and has been living in the
USA for 4-1/2 years. They have an active 3-1/2 year old son named Bryce who
loves motorcycles and wants to go for rides daily.
