Ireland – The Semiconductor Island

Why is Ireland chosen by many Semiconductor businesses?

The Semiconductor industry in Ireland can be traced back to 1976 when Analog Devices opened a Fab in Limerick. With the opening of Intel’s European manufacturing & technology Headquarters in 1989 near Dublin, the industry was really put on the map.

40 years from the birth of ‘Silicon Ireland’ there is now a melting pot of innovation and international collaboration among; experienced engineers, skilled graduates, researchers, multinational and Indigenous companies that are involved in all stages of the semiconductor value chain from initial design through to welding and fabrication.

3rd Round Transponder Crash

Great Weather – Complicated Results

It was great to finally get to see all the girls again at a sunny Brookthorpe for the 3rd Round of the BWMA Westermans International British Womens Motocross Championship 2018

2017 the first ever Championship certainly was a success and I was very happy to see so many more girls on the start line of the first race. The 27 strong field this year is so determined all the way through to back with everyone having someone to battle.

Transponder recording on the day was compromised so timings were unreliable and Howard Marriott the organiser had to revert to manual lap scoring whilst taking some stick from a couple of competitive parents!

The MX Girls head for Gloucester

Gathering Speed and Recognition

Despite the Westerman gang being absent from the first (2nd) round of the 2018 championship the reviews and comments of the expanding women’s class and newly formed youth class was really positive.

I am told I missed some awesome riding at the two day event at Bushton on 22nd April.

It is great to see that in only the 2nd year, the MX girls from around the country, realise that the BWMA Westermans International Championship is the best way forward to compete in Europe and eventually the World.

The publicity from the previous season means there are more and more sponsors interested in helping many of the girls to achieve their dreams.  With the support from local businesses some riders have new bikes and kit, this is a massive help.  Other support the Championship with prizes for Hole Shots, fastest laps or prizes of energy drinks.

We are more reliable than British Weather

Would you believe it?


20 days apart from Round 1 of the British Women’s MX championship to this weekend’s 2nd round.

On April 1st in Grittenham the track was so flooded the whole event had to be cancelled. Now England is having the hottest April for 70 years.  At least our company is more reliable than the weather!!

21st and 22nd April the 2nd (well actually the 1st!) round of the BWMA Westermans International Womens Motocross Championship will take place in Wiltshire.
