Just completed this new commission of Alan Bott from Pememberton Tyres, Wigan racing his Superlight Drakart., getting air over a jump.

Superlight’s are great fun to watch and have been a support class at many British Supermoto rounds. They are powered by either 900cc Honda Fireblade engines , or 600cc Rotax 2 stroke kart engines. With a fixed, non slip diff. rear axle, they are great fun to corner, hanging the rear end to out to slide.

This was an interesting subject to paint, a break from the usual bikes! Luckily I was able to watch a DVD Alan loaned me to get an understanding of how they cornered and jumped.

For this season Alan is moving up to a 900cc Fireblade engined Superlight Drakart and is eagerly awaiting it’s arrival.
