“I can’t wait for next week, its going to be a lot of fun riding with Crumpy and Brownie, these little scooters are great on this track, I hope everyone comes down to support this great event, its only a gold coin donation entry and it all goes to charities” said Bayliss
“I would also like to announce that I want to donate all my ride gear from the event to Mat & Chloe Rogers for their great children’s charity 4 ASD KIDS” Bayliss continued.
Mat Rogers (Duel International Rugby legend) who is a good friend of Troy’s.
“This event its not about the size of his engine its about the size of his heart” Said Rogers.”This is a very kind gesture Troy has offered us, a helmet would have been great but to have all his ride gear to Auction is amazing, this will help so many children and we cant thank Troy enough” Said Rogers
