Sam “Bam” Burman is a local motor sports star and this Saturday 22nd November she is hosting a full day of events and entertainment at The Green Tree Pub in Messingham. It’s all to raise funds to help support her team – Sam Burman Racing throughout the 2015 Motostar season.
I interviewed Sam, she’s friendly, polite, laughs and smiles a lot and was quite happy to talk to Scunthorpe Nights about her racing. Not to stereotype anyone but I think you’d be forgiven if your first guess at what she does on a weekend wasn’t that she races motorbikes at you know only 140mph. But, well she does and she doesn’t mess about at it either. The Motostar season takes her to circuits all around the country and in Europe, and as part of Saturday’s goings on her fantastic Moto 3 machine will be on display in the car park at Green Tree for you to check out. But there’s plenty more going on as well
The day starts at 10am with a Coffee Morning and then through the rest of the day there will be displays to view and games for the kids. Sam and some of her team will also be around to chat with. There will be competitions including a very popular “prize every time” lucky dip with specially donated quality Motorsports prizes. In the evening from 7pm it is ticketed, but for £5 you get entry into the raffle for even more prizes, you get food – pulled pork sarnies and Lincolnshire sausage hot dogs, and you getmusic in the form of the very entertaining Box Pavilion. You can purchase tickets from the pub or by phone – 07850 276534 or by email – firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are also available on the door.
Sam’s aspirations are to progress further in the British Championship, maybe to follow in the footsteps of her heroes Kevin Schwantz, Valentino Rossi and her biggest inspiration her father Phill Burman, also a motorcycle racer in his time. And I suppose we can help her do this. On sale will be what is the focus of the day her Official 2015 Calendar. There will also be plenty of SamBam merchandise available as well (for the first time ever apparently).
The overwhelming amount of local support she gets is one thing Sam says is very important to her and she is very grateful for any she receives. She is hoping to make this years calendar launch the biggest most successful so far. So if you are interested in Motorsport, or bikes, or your kids are, or you would like to be, or maybe you fancy a good time, a prize, or even just a coffee and you want to help out a really quite nice local sportswoman then why not head down to The Green Tree on Saturday.
