The BEMSEE MRO Minitwins 2022 Championship kicked off on Saturday 12th March on the Brands Hatch Indy track.

We are very proud to be sponsoring Alex Mann once again, and can't wait to see what this year has in store for him.

The first race of the season was this weekend at Brands Hatch. 

Friday was good, a dry morning and a wet afternoon meant confidence was built and gearing was sorted. It rained over night on Saturday and the track was drying, not enough though so qualifying was done on scrub wets, the right choice as Alex finished in position 4 for Race 1.

Not a great start to Race 1 ending up at the back of an 6 man train, but a 21 second lead over 9th meant he just saved the tyres and bought it home in P8. 

Race 2 had a better start but starting from P8 meant Alex was already back of the group. The last lap was dramatic with paintwork being swapped and riders out of their seats ending with a 3 way drag to the line with Alex finally finishing in 7th.

It had rained again overnight on Sunday but was drying leaving Alex confident there was a big enough dry line to go for it on drys. A good decision until lap 3 when the heavens opened just long enough to put water down which made it impossible to ride on drys, it was all Alex could do to stay upright to finish 10th.

Race two was the same story with decisions with tires meant another P10.

At Snetterton, it was a great start to the day for Alex - he started in 7th and ended in 2nd! Alex had the fastest lap time, so he is now in pole position for the next race. The final race went much better than the qualifying race, where he started and finished in 7th in both races. Fingers crossed for the next race.
