This is getting daft. Sunday's race was delayed nearly two hours because of rain, so the first singles practice started at 11pm UK time. I saw the new schedule, watched singles Qualifying 1 (Q1), then set my alarm for 1am and slept...

This is a little bit later than usual for a couple of reasons, but I saw this race live in the flesh, having flown out to the Midwest and driven for hours on end to follow the fortunes of Red Torpedo-sponsored riders, Jared Mees an...

I'm going to keep splurging these top of the head reports if I watch the AFT races on Fanschoice. I had to get up early for a flight on Sunday morning, so I set my alarm for 3.30am to watch a bit before I left, then streamed it on...

AFT Twins

1. Mees (Indian)

All week I have been kicking myself for not going to the Daytona TT, but there were reasons. Chiefly, it's on a Thursday. If you fly to the USA and don't stay a Saturday night the flights are hugely more expensive and I didn't have...

It was Anthony Brown, Mr DTRA, who, I think, first described an argument played out on Instagram as an insta-ding-dong. It was also Anthony who alerted me to an insta-ding-dong between two of the world's top flat track racers....

American Flat Track is not turning into a one-make series yet, but the latest news is ominous for other manufacturers competing in the 2018 series.
