Whyte re-appointed for top BSB role.

Mervyn Whyte MBE has been reappointed MCRCB chief steward for the 2010 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.

This is the second year running that Whyte will take up the position, which involves working closely with BSB series director Stuart Higgs.

“I'm delighted to once again take on the role of chief steward,” said Whyte, who was awarded an MBE in 2008 for his services to sport. “Last year was a very enjoyable challenge and I immensely enjoyed working with Stuart Higgs and the rest of the team.

“I see my role as a great opportunity to gain more knowledge and experience in the world of motorsport which I hope I can bring back and apply in Northern Ireland. I already look forward to the new championship season.”

Last year, Whyte was also appointed to the role of race director of the International North West 200 - Ireland's largest outdoor sporting event. Whyte was clerk of course at the famous road race for eight years before taking up the new post.

This is a totally different style of shot to the majority that have made it through to the final five, it captures the atmosphere at Brands, that natural amphitheatre which we all love about Brands Hatch. Technically it’s not a difficult shot to take but Gavin’s execution has been very good, capturing the bikes on the final grid formation before the start. By also including the Brands Hatch logo on the very far left of frame enhances the shot as well, it looks as though it’s been taken with an extreme wide angle, a 14mm or 16mm lens which ads to the drama of the image.

Mervyn Whyte has helped sustain and improve the NW200 over the years, but people must realise that without difficult decisions being made it could be carnage. Hats off to the man who took the right decisions. With respect to spectator areas, all I have to say is that Armoy shows how easy an accident can occur. Lets all buy programmes this year to support the event and throw our weight behind it. Just always remember the politically correct bunch in the wings wanting to ban it!!

I'm not disagreeing with your main point..But last years NW200 attendance was down because it was absolutely bucketing it down with rain..The previous 3 years it was cracking the flags..I rode up from the South for Thursday practice worst ride of my life bar non..I think the biggest problem is they can't get people to buy the programme so they end up charging to much for paddock entry..But there are to many grandstands I agree..
