2007 Season Comes to a Close
The 2007 season has come to a close with many positives and a negative.
Positive: John Vaughan #103, wraps up the 2007 Production Twins Amateur Championship !
John (AKA Jack) in his first season back after a 10+ year layoff returns to the LRRS
winning 5 of the 8 events and finishing with 104 points for the season, 27 points ahead
of the nearest competitor.
Positive: Mike Vaughan #198 sells his SV650 and picks up an EX500 and returns to racing for the
last 2 events of the year. We hope to see more of Mike in 2008.
Negative: Steve Parolin #784 crashes in practice on 8/31, brakes clavicle and is forced to
sit out the remainder of the season. See Pics and Clips for some X-rays and Steve's comments
about the incident.
Positive: Steve Parolin finish 9th in LWSS championship, while missing the last 3 events.
While Steve's SV650 is Super Sport spec, this was a class Steve had not intended to run
during the 2007 season, but welcomes the positive results and is considering making
this the class to focus on on 2008.
Questionable: With John winning the Amateur Production Twins Championship, he
will be moving up to the Expert class for 2008. We will see sibling rivalry drive Mike
and John to the Expert Championship reminiscent of the epic battles they had in the
90s aboard their FZR 400s ?
2007 Season Starts

Welcome back John.

GRRRip welcomes Mike Vaughan former LW Production Class Champion to the team.
Mike returned to racing on 9/2 after a 10 year lay off and is rapidly getting back to
where he left off. Look for the 198 of Mike to be mixing it up with the fast guys next year.
Steve Parolin had fallen back to 7th in the STWN points, but a strong 5th place finish
on Saturday the 23rd has moved him back in to 6th in the points.
Rider Don Allen has gone in to semi-retirement and has sold the 627 SV 650,
which he road to a 4th place finish in the Amateur STWN 2005 Championship.
Will Don be back next year ? We hope so.
