Desmo Due Next year - 2016

For 2016 Season the series will be hosted by NGRRC, we will be taking part in all 8 of their meetings with all rounds to count towards the championship

As some of the circuits are very popular and also have large grid sizes namely Donington Park, Castle Combe and Thruxton, combined with DDs average grid sizes over the last couple of tears we are more than likely going to be sharing these grids with another class such as Open 500.

Because of this and the safety factors relating to shared grids in Wet conditions we will be introducing the use of Wet weather race tyres into the rules.

It is also a possibility that we may end up sharing grids at other meetings if our entries or as low as they were at both Pembrey meetings last year, but hopefully we will be able to get our grid sizes back up and secure our own grids at Brands, Cadwell, Oulton, Pembrey and Anglesey

As for Tyres, I am still in talks just as I was this time last year and will hopefully be able to announce what we will be running on at the beginning of next month. I am trying to secure suitable control tyres for both the dry and wet

Very close to signing off on a tyre deal, hopefully I'll be able to make an announcement within the next 10 days. I must admit I'm quite looking forward to the 2016 DD season
