It’s definitely been a successful September for the Silicone Engineering Race Team.
Young riders Malachi Mitchell-Thomas and Ben Stafford celebrated top spot for team Silicone Engineering in two separate events.
Ben won his first BSB podium on the top step over in Assen in The Netherlands where he was competing in round 10 of the BSB series.
It was an impressive victory for Ben as it was his first trip to the circuit and he set the pace early on in the Dutch series. At the end of the qualifying sessions he was second on the grid and gave himself a great chance to achieve a podium finish.
Later in the day for the Dutch race, Stafford led all the way to the finish line, a full 5 seconds in front of the next rider and again taking top step on the podium.
Malachi made the headlines over on the Isle of Man after winning his first Isle of Man Mountain Course race with victory in the Full Factory Winners Wear Senior Race at the IMGold Manx Grand Prix.
Malachi didn’t just achieve top spot; he also broke Alan Jackson’s outright lap record and Seamus Greene’s race record which have both stood since 2005 in the process, an amazing achievement for the nineteen year old rider.
Everyone at Silicone Engineering would like to say a big congratulations to both Mal and Ben for their top finishes and hope there’s more to come!
