Permashine Racer Chrissy Rouse on the mend

We are pleased that Chrissy Rouse is on the mend and looking forward to building on the progress he made at Cadwell Park despite a huge crash of which he has no recollection. The 20-year-old from Burnopfield near Newcastle had been on course for his best result of the year as the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship headed to his favourite track.

Rouse and the CECS/PERMASHINE Mission Racing BMW team had two objectives as the weekend began – to break into the 1.29s and land a top six finish, and they were looking on course for success as Monday’s 15 lap race got underway at the Lincolnshire circuit.

The Geordie had already ticked the first box by setting his best lap time of 1.29:986 during Sunday’s qualifying session, and after finishing third fastest in morning warm-up was feeling confident of a good result. Starting from seventh on the grid, he got a quick getaway and despite almost getting tangled up with Josh Elliott at the start, he rode a solid opening lap and moved up one place to sixth. Settling in nicely behind former champ Adam Jenkinson, Rouse was looking in a good position to perhaps begin challenging for fifth by the time the pack began the third lap. But disaster struck as he was coming towards the end of the lap and a tiny mistake resulted in him losing the back end and he highsided, hitting the ground hard. He had to be picked up and helped off-track by marshals before heading to the medical centre.

Circuit doctors sent him to hospital for a CT scan and to be fully checked out before allowing him to be driven back home later on Monday evening. Now back at home recovering – and getting ready for a maths exam this week for his degree – the Newcastle University student has admitted he has no recollection of the crash.“I know it was going well, I remember those few laps were good, I was in a really strong sixth and I was convinced I could at the very least hold onto that position, and maybe challenge for fifth or even fourth,” he said. I remember losing the back end and then the next thing I can recall is sitting behind the tyre wall with marshals and doctors speaking to me. I don’t have any memory whatsoever of the crash, and even when I’ve looked at photos of the marshals helping me off the track I don’t remember anything.”

After a solid night of sleep back at home he woke up on Tuesday with a headache and a sore thumb, but is already looking forward to the next round at Oulton Park in a fortnight, and is pleased with the progress he made before the crash.

Hicky wins at Macau GP

 

On only his second visit to the Macau GP Permashine supported motorcycle racer Peter Hickman has won the 49th annual race with a six second advantage over Martin Jessopp with Michael Rutter finishing in third place.

As the lights went out he slotted into second place behind Martin Jessopp and the pair immediately pulled clear of the pursuing pack. Jessopp had a good lead but as the race progressed Hicky began to make inroads towards him and by half race distance on lap six he was right with him. He followed him for a couple of laps before making his move to take the lead.

With a clear track in front of him Hicky gradually increased his lead and crossed the finish line at the end of the 12 laps a full six seconds ahead of Jessopp to give a fairy tale win to the team at the end of a very successful year.

"I would like to thank my team as all their hard work has paid off. Briggs Equipment UK for their support and the RAF Reserves team for putting such a fantastic bike under me. Also my thanks to Lee Hardy who has believed in me this past 18 months, I now move on to my new team for next season but its great that I have given Lee a win to end my time with him and the team."

Hicky travels directly to Spain to test with the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team before returning home to Louth for the Christmas festivities. He will take in more winter testing during the coming months prior to making his debut for JG Speedfit Kawasaki in the first round of the 2016 British Superbike championship at Silverstone on April 10.

HICKMAN TAKES MAIDEN ULSTER GP SUPERBIKE WIN

Permashine supported motorcycle rider Peter Hickman took his maiden International road race win in superb style on Saturday when he swept to victory in the second Superbike race at the Ulster Grand Prix on the Briggs Equipment Superstock machine. This completed a superb day for the 28-year who had earlier claimed a close second in the Superstock race and a third place in the Dundrod Superbike race on Thursday.

It was the final race of the day that gave him his finest moment despite the Superbike race being held in tricky wet conditions. Reduced in distance from six laps to four, Hickman grabbed the lead the moment the lights turned green and ultimately led from start to finish although he was under pressure throughout, firstly from Michael Dunlop and Keith Amor and then Conor Cummins.

With less than a second between the quartet Cummins tried everything he could to find a way past, but Hicky had everything covered and took the victory. It couldn’t have been much closer as just 0.028s separated them as they flashed across the line.

Strong Result for Hicky in Supersport

Peter Hickman powered the Lee Hardy Racing/Iron Maiden Trooper beer /Permashine MV Agusta Supersport bike to a strong 11th place in the second Supersport race at the Isle of Man TT festival on Wednesday posting his fastest ever lap of the course in the class of 17m 57.288s - 126.083mph on his final lap.

As the four lap race got underway Hicky made up ground to 19th at the first checkpoint on corrected time and by the time he reached Ramsey he was up into 11th place. He moved up a place to 10th at the end of the first lap and held station until he reached Ramsey on lap two when he was back down to 11th. He maintained 11th to the pit stop at the end of the lap and this time the bike fired up first time after refuelling.

With two laps remaining Peter remained in 11th position but was gaining time on David Johnson although he was unable to reel him in and crossed the finish line in 11th just six seconds behind on corrected time.

Peter said: "I haven't ridden a Supersport bike for at least 10 years so to set this fast pace this week is amazing. The MV Agusta is a fantastic bike to ride and I have really enjoyed my two races on it. Thanks to the boys at Lee Hardy Racing for the fast refuelling time and also Iron Maiden Trooper, Permashine and all my sponsors for their support."

Hicky has just one more race at this year's TT and that is the blue riband Senior TT. Last year he posted a 129mph lap on his final circulation of the TT course and was acclaimed as a rising new star of the festival. He has already surpassed that speed in the Superstock race this year lapping just shy of 130mph and will be setting his sights at joining the 130 club on Friday.

PERMASHINE’s PETER HICKMAN - SEASON FINALE

Riding the RAF Reserves Honda Peter Hickman ended his season with three points finishes in the MCE British Superbike championship at the Brands Hatch finale over the weekend in mixed weather conditions.

Qualifying went well for the Louth based rider who took the Mother Hubbard supported Honda through to the final stage of qualifying to start the first of three races from a third row grid position.

But the weather was against Hicky on Saturday for the 18 lap opener as the track was wet and slippery due to the rain and he was only able to finish in 13th place.

Hicky said: "That was a long race.I was struggling for grip on the Indy section but the GP section was mint. I can't figure out what we need to do to make the bike better in the wet. Lets hope it doesn't rain tomorrow."

The weather was a lot better on Sunday and although there were some damp patches there was a good dry line to race on. Starting from the fifth row Hicky completed the first lap in 15th place and made steady progress through to take the chequered flag at the end of the 20 lap affair in 11th position.

Race three was run in the dry with Hicky starting from the fourth row. He soon made it through to 10th place and at mid race distance he was up into ninth position. He was poised to move further upfield when the red flag came out to end the race because of a two bike crash. A result was declared at 17 laps distance with Hicky being credited with ninth place.

The 15 points awarded for the three races bring his total to 120 but he just misses out on a top 10 end to his season finishing just five points away in 11th place - credit due to the Lincolnshire rider who missed the first three rounds, six races, at the start of the season.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to Lee Hardy Racing and RAF Reserves plus Andrew from Mother Hubbard. The bike has been fantastic all year and I feel we have been punching way above our weight. I also would like to extend my thanks to all my personal sponsors PERMASHINE, friends, family and fans for their continued support this year."

Prior to the Brands Hatch races Peter was at Darley Moor where he contested the annual Stars at Darley races. He dominated proceedings scoring pole position, winning both races and setting a new lap record. He won the trophy back in 2012 and still held the outright lap record so to win the trophy again this year and also to better his existing lap record was a perfect result for the Louth rider.

Hicky will soon be reunited with his Ice Valley TT BMW as he is to make his debut at the annual Macau GP which takes place from November 13-15.
