Background
=========
My name is Mark, I'm 26 and from West Wales, Aberystwyth.

My Dad Colin Purslow has raced for fun since I can remember so I have grown up around the racing scene my whole life. I always look up to him and this inspired me to give it a go as a privateer around work. I took the plunge in 2015 to try proper road racing in the Isle of Man. With some circuit experience and a bike built by myself and my Dad I dove headfirst in to learning the Isle of Man mounta

Operating as usual

Hi guys so an update on the weekend of racing in @mscfrohburgerdreieck with Never Be Clever / Zokatora Racing. It was Awesome!!! The first qualifying sessions were learning for me so I was going to push in the second session but then the rain came so I couldnโ€™t improve on the position but on the plus side we also found great wet weather settings on both bikes and then on the BMW I was the fastest in the wet qualifying by 1.8 seconds. ๐Ÿ˜ Then in the racing I had to start from 24th each time on the R6 so I had some hard work to do at the start but Iโ€™m the end we got P15 in race one and P13 in race two and improving on our times so very happy about that. And on the BMW we got P15 in both races and improving on times again but the next step for the BMW is to figure out some better dry settings on the suspension now that we are going faster. But overall a great weekends racing and as always massive thanks to the team @neverbecleverzokatora for all the hard work they put in this weekend. The next race I will be doing will be in @circuit_spa_francorchamps on the 24/25 of September so I canโ€™t wait for even more racing. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ #racing #roadracing

Hi guys now Iโ€™m home I thought Iโ€™d do a review of @hamove_hengelo race weekend. And long story short it was awesome ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ we finished 9th in both SSP races and 13th in both SBK races and they were all close fun races so Iโ€™m buzzing with the results. Also we made changes to the bikes before each session and every time the bikes were getting better and better so we are going in the right direction in understanding how the bikes work and how to get the best out of them. And as always a massive thanks to the team Never Be Clever / Zokatora Racing they did an amazing job in giving me what I wanted with the bikes so roll on the next round at Frohburg in Germany ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป #racing #roadracing #goodvibes #goodtimes

Hey guys just a update on the weekend. After winning my Race yesterday I was on pole for todayโ€™s 750 super stock and ACU 750 race so I was all ready to go for some good racing and it was in the first race for a couple of laps I was leading but then I noticed a loss in power and the bike not sounding quite right, so I had to pull in out of my race and when I got into the pits it was obvious that it was a mechanical issue so Iโ€™ve had to retire today. But donโ€™t worry I will fix it and we will be back stronger next time ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ thanks again for all the support guys I really appreciate it. #racing #sh*thappens #roadracing

Hey guys sorry for the slow update so yea qualifying went well I think I will be starting 20th out of 32 and I think 27th out of 32 on the 1000. I didnโ€™t manage to improve on my 1000 time as I got cramp in my legs I couldnโ€™t carry on as it was that bad. So hopefully some stretching and massaging will sort me out foe tomorrowโ€™s racing.
But a massive thanks to the team Never Be Clever / Zokatora Racing for preparing the bikes all day and getting me out on track. Next stop is racing tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ #goodtimes #racing #roadracing

We were having problems with the brakes binding on the FZ750 and I think I found the culprit lol. The rubber seals have broken down causing the pistons to stay out instead of returning creating excess heat that had started to melt the seals and also resulting in excessive brake pad wear. Moral of the story always get genuine parts when it comes to brakes, and now that we have fitted genuine seals and pistons we have sorted the brake binding issue once and for all. So now with we will have more speed ๐Ÿ˜ #brakes #genuineparts #speed #morespeed

Sorry for the late update guys but it got busy on race day lol so we had some ups and downs the downs being me crashing out of the 600 race from 7th position I was ok but we couldnโ€™t get the 600 out for the second race so I then just focused on the BMW qualifying 17th I focused on how to improve the bike and also how to ride it full stop as itโ€™s the first proper outing on it haha but we got two 15th positions so Iโ€™m very happy with that as the class of riders in the IRRC championship is very high. The team Never Be Clever / Zokatora Racing did an awesome job throughout the weekend I canโ€™t thank them enough. We all learned a lot so letโ€™s roll on the next round at Horice.
