Owen ‘O’Show’ Richardson

For the past couple of years Owen or O’Show has been channelling his energies between North Gloucestershire Road Racing Club/NGRRC and No Limits Racing/NLR aboard his beautifully prepared Kawasaki ZX6R and he has recently been enjoying a comprehensive 4 day test over in Spain in a bid to find his confidence (Not in short supply) and rhythm again after a high speed visit to the tyre wall at Snetterton while racing with the NGRRC that left him with a catalogue of injuries.

Known around the paddock for his sense of humour and zest for life all that changes when the visor is clipped shut and the lights go green. That drive and determination is this year aimed at the No Limits Championship which will also include a brutal 10hr endurance race at the Anglesey/Trac Mon circuit in Wales an event I am hoping to be covering.

Rather worryingly for the opposition the ‘Show’ has turned his back on an Ex Chris Walker Be Wiser Kawasaki superbike that was at his disposal and the new machinery for his 2019 campaign is due to break cover in the next week or so. A fellow tattoo collector Owen and I came together after he very generously, anyone noticed that theme running right through our entire ‘Friends’ list?, offered small businesses the chance to display their logo’s on his bike free of charge and we were thrilled to take him up on his offer.

As with all the Magnificent 7 members we will be keeping up to date with Owen over the year as he looks to claim the top prize and hope to meet up with him at Oulton Park, Anglesey or Donington Park.
