And...here they are..... this years T675.Net sponsored riders. :p

Each of these individuals are participants in our forum and bring a wealth of knowledge with them. The 2007 selection really adds a variety of riders and race series to the forum. It should help ensure that we have a wide amount of representation, race reports, photos, and rider feedback at all levels or racing.

A big thank you to the guys/gals reading this. It means you are taking a chance to see what Racers' Corner is all about, and possibly help out some great guys.

AJ Hutchinson (ajhutch69) of Kildare, Ireland is a 24-year-old privateer racer (clubman) who's done well on the circuits in Ireland the last few years (2004 + 2005 on a Honda CBR400RR and 2006 on a Triumph 675), and he's an active member on the forum. He is leaving the Irish racing scene to concentrate his efforts on the Triumph Michelin Young Guns Series in the UK. At the moment, AJH Racing doesn't have any big backers but is hopeful Absol continue to support him for 2007. The series kicks off in Spain on February 16th for the official launch and the first round is on April 14th/15th at Snetterton!!
On his first season in the 600s, AJ secured 3rd position in the Southern SS600 Clubman Championship, 3rd in the Southern National SS600 Championship, 5th in the Bridgestone Championship and was also voted the 2006 'Bridgestone Rider of the Year'.
You can check out AJ's web site at www.ajhutchracing.com (loads of great new pics and videos with onboard footage), and you can learn more about the team's efforts -and the S600 series- via the discussions in our 675 racing forum

Paul Young (PYR96) is a name well-known to British and Australian racing fans. His prolific 15-year career includes numerous wins and podium finishes in national-level Superbike and Supersport competition in both the UK and Australia. Paul won the overall British Superstock championship in 2001; and in 2005 he won three consecutive races in British Superstock action. So he's bloody fast. 2006 saw Paul place 22nd in the overall British Supersport standings. Paul will have a head start on any would-be 675 racing competitors -- he was a development tester for Triumph in 2004, giving them input on the Daytona Triple. Even today, Paul continues to test for Triumph and offer's feedback on racing kit goodies for the 675. Paul has established Team PYR Triumph and he'll race the Daytona 675 again this season in the British Supersport Championship. As we all know, Triumph is not involving itself with factory support to Paul or anyone else, not even at this level of competition. Learn more about Paul's efforts via the discussions in our 675 racing forum where he's already posted and has promised to drop in whenever time allows him to. His website is http://www.paulyoungracing.com/ , but he can also be contacted directly at [email protected]

I think the following best explains Youngy's intentions this year..... "I've managed to do my bit to influence the factory into making race kit parts for the 675. Now I need all the help I can get to do the only thing that is likely to influence the factory into supporting a top level racing effort directly. I need to get the bike on the British Championship podium." -Paul Y.

Ross Walter (Ross Walter) set the mini-moto scene on fire with is debut in 2002, he quickly made a name for himself with over 60 podiums and a number of top 3 finishes in national championships. 2003 Ross continued his march in Minimoto racing, part way through only his second season on a bike the decision was made to move up to "real" bikes. The Aprila 125 was purchased and Ross gained his clubman license. After this young ross (still only 14!) got onto a Honda gp 125 machine and felt instantly at home. he finished the 2003 season appearing at some BEMSEE meetings.
Ross is probably the youngest English person to of been stopped by French police on a race bike. At Nogaro in 2004 Ross had gone to the petrol station some 200 yds from the circuit. Stupid maybe but it had been done by loads of riders, however on this occasion the police pulled him over, however fortunately the local police chief decided not to prosecute.
In the 2004 season Ross still only 15 was crowned BEMSEE 125 champion with 3 lap records in the process. He also managed a respectable 13th in the knockhill BSB support race.
In 2005 Ross stepped up again to the R6 cup, a bike he never got to grips with after his 125 days. After a very hard year the team decided BSB wasn't the place for young Ross to flourish so they decided to take a step back to MRO, the bike of choice, the Daytona 675.
Ross and the 675 seamed to gel immediately the bike being much more flickable like his 125's than the R6. A development year followed with Ross managing 3rd overall in MRO supersport. All this at only 18!
Next year the team are taking the Triumphs to British Supersport , see them at the first round Easter Monday Brands hatch. Look out for the forthcoming new and improved www.rosswalter.co.uk for all the team news.
