Chas Hern Racing

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from CHR

Well the year of motorcycle racing has finished. Chas managed to finish 2nd after a action packed last round in Sydney, Chas took pole and the race 1 win but a blown engine and crash threw all title chances out the window. But as they say that's racing.

Chas will be back for 2009, again on Suzuki's but this time he will pilot a GSXR 600 in the Australian Super-Sport Championship riding for the RC Motor sport team. RC Motor sport is a business designed by and for all lovers of motor sport. Founder Rod Church wood hopes to have doors open to the new shop in January and details of the grand opening will be but up shortly.

In the pass 2 months a lot of preparation has been made in-order for the new shop to open and also testing of the 600 has been flat out with Chas testing Phillip Island and Mallala all ready. "The 600 is a lot different to riding the 1000, you have to ride the bike so much harder to get near the same laps times I did on my 1000 stocker" commented Chas after his first ride at Phillip Island. "It's a great bike and I can't wait to be pushing it to it's limits".

The team will continue testing at Phillip Island and with Chas now being graded to "A" he will be looking forward to giving it his all in 2009.

Both Chas Hern Racing and RC Motor sport wish all our friends and Fans a Merry Christmas and a Great 2009.

After a great result at the 2008 World Super-bike support class Chas Hern was looking forward to competing in the Moto GP support class but the team’s budget for the year had almost reached its limit and Chas looked like being a spectator for the event.

 

Chas was contacted by sponsor Marty from Underground Design in South Australia with a plan to see him line up on the Super-bike grid. Rod Churchwood from RC Motorsport also came aboard and Chas was on his way.

Chas Hern selected for 2009 Kirk McCarthy scholarship

After what can only be described as the worst round of the year for the Chas Hern/RC motorsport team, a major boost came at the awards dinner.

Chas had finished 2nd in the 2008 formula Xtreme Championship and collected his trophy, but to his surprise it wasn’t going to be his only trip to the stage. Chas suffered a damaged ankle in the 2nd race for the weekend but insisted on showing up to the dinner to thank sponsors and his team.

 After the intermission, Chas’s name was called out to accept the Kirk McCarthy award and he hopped his way down to the stage to gladly collect the trophy.  “This means a lot to me. I had the privilege of racing against Kirk in dirt track. I have also had the honor of meeting his parents Margaret and Allan, as they live only 20 minutes from the Motorcycle/Lawn mower shop where I used to work. They used to come in and buy parts from me.” commented Chas proudly accepting the award. This is a major boost to the team as they will be stepping up to a premier class in 2009. Chas will again be riding Suzuki’s and details of the team will be revealed soon. 

Big thanks to everyone behind the Kirk McCarthy fund and especially Allan and Margaret McCarthy for their ongoing support for up and coming Australian riders after the loss of Kirk, one of Australia’s greatest motorcycle personality’s and competitors.
