AHRMA: Team Obsolete Preparing For Nelson Ledges

Team Obsolete and rider David Roper are preparing for the Bridgestone Tires AHRMA Roadracing Series round May 24-26 at Nelson Ledges Road Course, in Garrettsville, Ohio.

On May 20-21, Roper rode two of Team Obsolete’s historic AJS 7R racebikes during a Monday-Tuesday USCRA race event at Thompson Speedway, in Thompson, Connecticut. Roper rode an ex-John Surtees AJS Special and a Kirby 7R at that event to get them dialed in.

According to Team Obsolete, the Kirby 7R is an “ex-works, post-production, ultra-short-stroke project built by AMC Race Chief Jack Williams” and that was raced by Bill Ivy and Paddy Driver.

In addition to the AJS 7R racebikes, Roper will also race a 1959 Matchless G50 at Nelson Ledges.

Team Obsolete is sponsored by Vanson Leathers, Red Line Synthetic Oil, Heidenau Tires, and Buchanan’s Spoke & Rim.
