Royal Enfield racer named Badger faces new challenges

Leon Stanley and the Royal Enfield motorcycle named Badger aren't done yet.
What's next for Badger Corse, the Royal Enfield Bullet racing team that has sampled three varieties of racing this year under the direction of builder Leon Stanley?

This single Royal Enfield Bullet has been a circuit racer, a flat tracker, and a land speed-record machine. Will there be a fourth round?

After filming a segment on the Badger for Cafe Racer TV, Badger Corse might have called it a year.

Instead, Stanley hopes to challenge Badger (and himself) with three more competitions.

His plans:
  • Summit Point, W.Va. Sept. 22 for the Western Eastern Roadracing Association (WERA) event. 
  • The Ohio Mile near Wilmington, Ohio Sept. 29-30 to run faired and non-faired, in both gas and fuel classes (shooting for four new class records).
  • Oakland Valley Raceway Park in Cuddebackville, N.Y. Oct. 21 for flat track action.
"All of this, is based of course, on scaring up the dough to make it happen," Stanley admits.
