  1. With the introduction of Junior Supersport at BSB.... Bemsee is delighted to see a progression class relevant to our established Ninja 300 bikes at the National level. This will allow Novice riders to start at Club level where at Bemsee they will receive: · Full technical support · On Circuit Parts Service and Tyre change · Free Mentoring and Coaching from our 30+ ACU accredited Club Coaches · £10k Prize support from Kawasaki & ACU at each round and year end prizes · Transitional support for the next step to BSB from Kawasaki for the Series winner · The chance to learn their craft with 4 races per weekend and Friday Testdays at 9 rounds on top Uk circuits – Donington, Brands GP, Cadwell, Snetterton, Silverstone · Running on machines that are the basis for a move to Supersport - machines that could be converted to run there. Since 2012 when the Kawasaki Junior Cup on the Ninja 250/300 first started rider progression had no clear path in the Uk… Riders moved to larger machines (where riders were physically able to). For many Parents the options were expensive - Moto 3 or the transition to 600cc machines was not always right for all. Some stayed at Club level on 400s or SV650 Minitwins. For a 13 year old entering our sport there's now the chance to learn at their own pace at Bemsee and transition to a BSB class that's now well suited to offer an appropriate transition at an affordable level. Indeed the chance to adapt the current Team Green Junior Cup bike of choice, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 to a Supersport spec machine will mean for many Parents that the legacy of their initial investment is protected. The Club plans to run development tests on the new Kawasaki Ninja 400 during the 2018 season with a view to introducing that machine as a race bike going forward. For more information on the entry level Team Green Junior Cup at Bemsee for riders 13-18yrs, email mikedommett@hotmail.com for an info pack or call us on 01708 720305

  7. Since 2012 the series has seen some fine riders at the top of the podiums. Now two of our recent riders go onto the World stage with the launch of the new Supersport 300 World Championship at WSB for 2017....The Club wishes them both every success for the future. Full Story HERE
  8. Kawasaki Junior Cup 2017

    The Team Green Junior Cup for 2017 - Tried & Tested Youth Road Racing The way to go for young riders seeking cost effective and fair competition Kawasaki uses "Team Green" as an overarching brand to support all its racing activities. So the successful THE TEAM GREEN JUNIOR CUP and moves into its sixth season with bigger support from Kawasaki & the ACU. A Prize Fund of £9000 will be on offer, £3.5k shared between the Series winners from the ACU and £5.5k that will be distributed to all riders based on performance & presentation throughout the season with Spot Prizes at each round. The Series will feature at nine of the 2017 BMCRC dates taking in some of the best circuits in the UK – Brands Hatch GP, Cadwell, Donington, Oulton, Snetterton 300 and Silverstone International amongst them. The Series is based on the Kawasaki Ninja 300 machine - reliable four-stroke technology that’s here – available now - and has a proven race pedigree. We’ve still not seen any major engine failures in the five seasons that the series has run. The bikes have achieved a good re-sale value as all second-handers at the end of 2016 have sold immediately. Importantly, these are four-strokes, so the technology is what we see in the National and International Championships going forward. This is the grass-roots of racing – where the Champions of the future will come from. The bike is quick, nimble and safe and a responsive easy ride….here’s Ivan, Father of Ryan Folkes who joined the Series in 2013 jumping from his 80cc Metrakit bike who then won the 2014 Series: “I was concerned at first that the move would be too big a jump for Ryan, he’s not the biggest of lads! I needn’t have worried – he took to the 300 straight away and praised its handling and smooth power delivery when compared to any of the 2-strokes he’d been riding. Can’t get him off it now and for me, well I just change the oil now as that’s all you have to do with these bikes, giving me more time to make sure he’s confident and enjoying himself. Along with the friendship and camaraderie in the paddock at Bemsee it’s the best thing we’ve ever done together by far”. At £4200+vat, for the basic race-ready bike, and probably more importantly, race-competitive (no engine tuning required or allowed) the new 300 machine is a bargain for new entrants to racing. This coupled with a full spares facility available at every meeting and technical guidance and advice on-hand at all times, makes the Series a perfect package for riders and parents alike. The ACU approved these bikes to be rated to 37bhp (our rules cap them under this) and they can be ridden by Novice Licence holders from 13 years onwards (18 years is the upper age limit in this Series) And now….Kawasaki through its K-OPTIONS arm are enabling Parents to finance a new Race Bike! Please call Bemsee for further details as the limits of the package will depend on the spec of the bike you choose. Since 2012 the Series has delivered great racing with some thrills and a few spills. We found the bikes coped well with all that was thrown at them, they crash well and repairs were easy and affordable. A Series of this type has to be built on some key elements, all of which have been proven over the last few seasons – · Affordability – The basic price of the machines has delivered an ideal race spec bike that has held a good resale value for teams who have chosen to sell their bikes and move to other classes. Entry fees and tyres have been the only extra elements, all of which have been competitive. And now you can finance the acquisition of a new bike through K-OPTIONS – just call for details. · Reliability – The engines are bullet-proof, there’s been no major engine failures, all parents have needed to do is change the oil and replace the odd lever or fairing panel. · Fairness – BMCRC has reacted to any issues raised by parents quickly & positively. The quality of policing of the Series has been a real focus. The fairness of the Series is grounded by each race engine being sealed before supply, along with a seal on the electrical IC units on each bike. There are no modifications that can be done on these bikes that can evade detection. · Competition – the performance of each bike is the same as the next. It’s the rider that will make the difference in this Series and the best of them will win out. · Advocacy- we invite parents to ask to speak about any aspect of the Series to our existing customers, don’t just take our word for it, don’t just listen to others – ask those who really know – those who have experienced the NJC for themselves. Just ask, we will put you in touch with other riders and parents. · Mentoring & Training –BMCRC meetings have Friday testdays, we offer a cohort of experienced ACU Club Coaches who are available for FREE mentoring and coaching of our younger riders. This is all part of an extensive Rookie rider package offered at the Club. To find out more about the Team Green Junior Cup for 2017, how to find a second hand bike where available, how to get hold of the new race 300 – email mikedommett@hotmail.com and request an info pack for the 2017 Series or call 01708 720305. The bike can be viewed on the Kawasaki stand at the NEC Bike Show 19th-27th November and will also be featured at the BMCRC Open Day at Brands Hatch in the Kentagon on 11th December. The Team Green Junior Cup 2017 – Fair, affordable, reliable & competitive – come and join the youth racing scene of the future – that’s here now!
  9. A real problem for new riders and passengers in the three-wheeled branch of our sport is how to get your initial Licence. Few Clubs are able to justify the tracktime to offer sidecars to do the Basic Rider Assessment (BRA) part of the course that all riders are now required to do towards getting their first ACU Licence. The ACU has offered the alternative on new riders doing their BRA on a solo machine since 2014 when the new Licence requirements were introduced. That’s still an option but perhaps not ideal… Bemsee will run a sidecar specific BRA at Donington on 8th April with tracktime between 5-6pm on the GP Circuit. Riders & Passengers will have the chance to use their new outfits and get some tracktime in towards their licence on this day, this will also feature the opportunity to do practice starts off the line under race conditions. The Club will also run the classroom CTC course for riders & passengers during the day – or you can opt to do your classroom part at any organisation running CTC courses between now and the season start. This includes Bemsee who have their full solo riding school at Brands Hatch on 20th & 21st February (the classroom CTC is separately held on Saturday 20th) The Donington date is in advance of the Club’s second race meeting of 2016 on the GP circuit over the weekend of the 9-10th April and is the first event to feature the BMCRC F1 & F2 2016 Sidecar Championship. There’s sidecar testing (for fully Licenced Teams) on the afternoon of Friday 8th April – so for new teams doing their BRA at the end of the day there will be plenty of experienced folk around with guidance and advice on sidecars as well as ACU Club Coaches overseeing your training. An application form is HERE for this event with prices at £50 for the BRA and £35 for CTC parts of the course. You'll also find the ACU 2016 Licence Application Form and the Bemsee Membership Form - all of which you should compete and return to the Bemsee office at Romford. For further guidance call us on 01708 720305

  12. Team Green Junior Cup 2016

    Announcing the Team Green Junior Cup 2016 – Tried and Tested Youth RacingThe way to go for young riders seeking cost effective and fair competition Kawasaki are introducing "Team Green" as an overarching brand to support all its racing activities. So the successful Kawasaki Junior Cup becomes THE TEAM GREEN JUNIOR CUP and moves into its fifth season with bigger support from Kawasaki & the ACU. A Prize Fund of £7000 will be on offer, £2k shared between the Series winners from the ACU and £5k that will be distributed to all riders based on performance & presentation throughout the season with Spot Prizes at each round. The Series will feature at eight of the 2016 BMCRC dates taking in some of the best circuits in the UK – Brands Hatch GP, Cadwell, Donington, Oulton, Snetterton 300 and Silverstone International amongst them. The Series is based on the Kawasaki Ninja 300 machine - reliable four-stroke technology that’s here – available now - and has a proven race pedigree. We’ve still not seen any major engine failures in the four seasons that the series has run. The bikes have achieved a good re-sale value as all second-handers at the end of 2015 have sold immediately. Importantly, these are four-strokes, so the technology is what we see in the National and International Championships going forward. This is the grass-roots of racing – where the Champions of the future will come from.

  15. The Kawasaki Junior Cup and Senior 300 Series draws to a close in 2015 with riders having had some great racing and good times. Our Rider Rep, Andy Smith has been talking to Kawasaki...see the full article on Kawasaki.com HERE For a flavour of how the riders are enjoying things, this recenty from Paul Robson: "I have been racing for about 6 years off and on, but this year decided to do the 300 Senior Sereis. Not only has the racing been close and exciting but what I would say was the best value racing package in the paddock. With a level playing field it's all about the rider. Tyre usage is low and I think I could go all season on one set of tyres if I had too. But even buying new tyres won't cost the earth. My little ninja (Kermit) hasn't missed a beat all year, and is one of the older bikes in the paddock and still pumping out top BHP. Come and see us at Brands (3-4Oct) or Snetterton (24-25Oct)" The Club will again be showing the race bikes on the Kawasaki Racing stand in Hall 3 at the NEC Motorcycle LIVE Show 28th November to 6th December. It's a long time to wait - so if you are interested in seeing the bikes with a view to competing in either the Kawasaki Junior Cup (13-18yrs) or the Senior 300 Series (18yrs+) then get in touch and we will send you tickets to come and see and chat with riders at one of the last two rounds - Brands 3-4 October or Snetterton 200 24-25 October Just email mikedommett@hotmail.com We will send info on the 2016 Series as soon as available, nearer the NEC Show.
