Hi Folks,
trying to find other UK racers who are planning to go to Bonneville next year and who may want to share transport, or who i can piggy-back on their transport solution. Most freight companies run scared of the no V5C of a pure race bike.
Any contact appreciated, regards Ian

Hi Ian.
Whereabouts are you based? I know there are now a few guys on here that are looking at shipping to Bonneville in either 2019 or maybe 2020 from the UK.

Too soon for me Ian  sad

My Lakester will ship 2020 at the earliest. I am based near Marlow, Bucks.



A Bonneville Lakester please barman.
Certainly sir; a lick of salt, a sip of gas and a twist of Lemming. More Lemming sir?
Just a squeeze.

A Squeeze of Lemming it is sir.

We are all going in 2020, for speed week though not BMST, we get charged storage costs if the bikes are held back as everything that's on the CARNET on the way out has to be in the container for the return shipping.
All crates have to be at shippers in London for the end on May and we tend to get them back late October or November.
One of our guys airfreighted from Glasgow to Vegas, its an option.

Happy to help that side of the pond if need be.

As Charlie said, we are going to SPEEDWEEK in 2020.  We typically end up with a 20ft container, but if there are more, then it becomes a 40ft, there's not much difference in costs and the more there are the cheaper it gets.  But, what ever is in the box has to come back in the box due to the Carnet restrictions.  The Carnet is a chamber of commerce covered assurance that you will bring back what you take out and pay no import or export duty. 

We are doing Speedweek because it's busy but so what, that's what makes it special.  It took us 6 years to get the record.  Most of the bikes we ship have no V5.  Ours started as a delivery of tubes and now has a billet engine. We have a frame and engine number but this is what we stamped on them so you can fill in the EPA paperwork.  But once that it done, you can reuse it for every future trip because it does not expire.

I can write loads more however, give me a call if you want to know more or have any questions.
