Fantasy Winner picks up an FZ8
As reported in MCN
With the start of the MotoGP, World Superbike Championship and the MCE British Superbike Championships drawing closer, the winner of the 2012 MCN Fantasy Road Race Competition - in association with MCE Insurance - has been handed the keys to a brand new Yamaha FZ8 worth £6999.
Toby Hirst used his biking knowledge and management skill to put together a crack team including the likes of Shakey Byrne and hard riding Aussie Josh Brookes in MCE British Superbikes and factory rider Dani Pedrosa in the blue ribbon MotoGP class.
Hirst amassed an unassailable 2124 points and he scooped the keys to the FZ8 from Frank Hayden at Crescent Motorcycles and MCE Insurance's Big Ed.
Reckon you can do better? Stand by for the launch of the 2013 MCN Fantasy Road Race competition in the paper and online at www.motorcyclenews.com.
In the meantime, keep an eye on pre-season testing to see who is fast and which bikes are the hottest bets for success. Will Valentino Rossi reward fantasy managers now he has returned to Yamaha? Or will the consistency of Jorge Lorenzo make him the star choice in MotoGP?
And don't forget to spread your budget wisely. It's all very well picking up some of the big names, but you don't want to run out of cash and have to compromise on quality in the other series.
