Mean Machine stops

Peter de Ridder has decided to terminate his TP52 campaign for this season.

“We’ve had some wonderful years in this class, but having lost our Mean Machine Mojo on the road to success, time has come to stop and take stock. I’ve considered the option to make changes to the team in order to get back on track, but that would not have done justice to the fantastic group of people we had for so many years. There are times one has to realistically admit to have performed below its standards. Being the owner and skipper I take full responsibility for that’.
