Ex-WSB star Anthony Gobert beaten so badly ‘he couldn’t be identified’
Anthony "Go Show" Gobert beaten so badly in his home doctors didn't know who he was...

FORMER World Superbike Championship star Anthony Gobert is recovering after being involved in an altercation in which he was left so badly beaten doctors couldn’t identify him.

According to MoreBikes, ‘Go Show’ was badly beaten by intruders in his house with baseball bats, who had identified him in a restaurant earlier and followed him home.

The attack, which took place earlier this month, was so severe Gobert could not be identified by doctors until he was able to talk and inform them of his name and details.

A statement release by Anthony’s brother, Aaron was also reported by Road Racing World giving more details: “The Go Show wasn’t heard from in weeks. Turned out some drunk said, ‘Are you the Go Show?’ while he was out eating. He said, ‘Yes but I’m eating.’ Then they came back more drunk and one started a fight; he TKO’D that guy.

“But then his drunk friends followed him home. That night they came back in a group, kicked in his door and bashed him with bats, to almost death and put him in ICU. (He) was in such a bad way they didn’t know who he was.

“Then when he could talk they googled him and made contact with us. He’s in a bad way and will live. All on the Gold Coast of Australia. That’s the story. Followed home and bashed by a group with bats after kicking in his door. More on his health to come.”

The Australian, who enjoyed race-winning success in World Superbikes during an on and off career that spanned from 1994 to 2006, Gobert was considered one of Superbike racing’s most talented, yet volatile competitors.

Headlines of victories against established rivals from a young age – which briefly secured him a factory Kawasaki deal and a shot at 500ccs with Suzuki – gave way stories of failed drugs tests, addiction and court battles, making the ‘Wild Child’ one of the sport’s most elusive characters. We only hope he will bounce back from this latest vicious episode.

I was at Oschersleben last weekend with the Alpe Adria Cup and the FIM Sidecar World Championship on the cards.

The sidecar world championship saw two tight knit races. The sprint race was one by Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes from the Birchall brothers and Päivärinta/Verävainen while the Gold Race was won by the Birchalls from Reeves/Wilkes and Päivärinta/Verävainen again completing the podium.
I'm not too deep into the Alpe Adria Cup but it was great racing, also in both its entry level classes the AAC600 and AAC1000.

Another great weekend with a bunch of good shots :D

Nice pics @Andy. Always thought sidecar passengers are the bravest men in motorsport, the guy in the top right photo is practically sniffing the tarmac!

Thanks, I'm glad you like them :)
The guy in top right would be Tom Birchall. I've also got some pics where the passengers bum is scratching over the tarmac but yeah this is as tough as it can get. I remember my mate Mark Saunders telling me at TT that he never recognised that he lost his passenger at Rhencullen and only became aware of it at Ramsey, some 5miles later approx. ... It's definately a tough life for a passenger

I've had a cracking weekend at the Schleizer Dreieck. Some early pics below

IDM Superbike #1 Ilya Mikhalchik, #32 Marc Moser, #19 Julian Puffe, #55 Pepijn Bijsterbosch, #31 Sarah Heide, #53 Alessandro Polita

IDM Sidecar #12 John Smits/Gunther Verbruggen, #3 Marcus Schlosser/Marcel Fries, #11 Peter Kimeswenger/Jens Lehnertz, #72 Scott Lawrie/James Connell

In other news, I managed a new record on my Fazer on the return. The second stint from the mandatory fuel stop saw a cracking 144.5 km/h average over 217 km, resulting in a 1h 35min drive ! And it never was dangerous or had moments while being packed up, just being in the flow

Race 1 early at Buchhübel one.
#90 Andres Nussbaum/Manuel Hirschi are leading the pack from #12 John Smits/Gunter Verbrugge, #77 Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes and #66 Mike Roscher/Anna Burkard
Reeves/Wilkes would walk on to a double in the 600s while Roscher/Burkard had quite some work in the 1000s

Not quite sure whether I posted this one already or not but it is worth a listen.
The 1988 Newcomers Manx Grand Prix full 4-lap commentary featuring a certain Philip McCallen destroying the competition in the 250s and my good mate Barry Wood who also had his first go on the Mountain Course in the same class of the Newcomers Race.
Well, enjoy :bye:
