Classic Racer



Joe Barton and his Minnovatio­n Racing team have been on top form throughout the 2021 CRMC season.

The West Yorkshire-based squad went into the last round looking to seal a total of five championsh­ips (for more see our CRMC coverage.)

In the Motosuperb­ike and ACU Post Classic championsh­ips Barton was pushed hard all the way by his main challenger John Dieterman: both running Continenta­l race tyres this season…

Despite challengin­g weather on the Saturday, Dieterman took the wins on the day, with Joe holding his nerve to trail in 2nd place in both races – good enough to take both titles. Barton was also able to take the 350cc Club, 500cc Club and ACU 500 titles on Minnovatio­n machinery. To do this he used a range of Continenta­l race tyres, including Contiroada­ttack 3 CR classic radials for 18-inch wheels, as well as 17-inch Contiracea­ttack rubber.

After the race meeting, Joe said: “To do what we did against such tough opposition is incredible: unbeaten in the ACU 500 and not a crash all year – it's a credit to the team: thanks to them, my wife, family and friends.”
