After Phillip Island '08 a couple of years passed while the racing had to once again take a back seat, but by mid 2010 Steve was ready for a return to the track. With some time to mull over the experience in 2008 and having assisted the OzLaverda team in 2010, he now had a clearer idea of what he wanted for his own race program.

Late in 2010 Brisbane Laverda identity Ian Morrison happened to meet rider Drmsby Middleton at a local bike shop. Ian proposed Drmsby as guest co-rider to Blair Briggs on the OzLaverda Spaceframe in November's 1-hour endurance race. Steve was assisting the team in the pits and was immediately impressed, seeing in him a rider well suited to the SFC Replica. The two soon found they had a very similar approach and enthusiasm, and within a couple of weeks Steve approached Drmsby to ride the SFC.

The third phase in the history of the two SFC's was thus started in earnest. Craig Macleod joined the pit crew and, with continued encouragement from Chris Cutler in South Africa and Drmsby having a much broader input than just his riding talents, a cohesive team direction soon began to emerge.

Prepared and run by the ICR crew, the SFC Replica operated from within the OzLaverda pits in early 2011. Although this was a great spectacle it did tend to get a bit complicated, and it soon became apparent that maintaining seperate teams would better allow each to persue their own race program.
In honour of both the past and the present, the new team name of Breganzane-ICR was adopted.

Coverage of this period would not be complete without thanking the entire OzLaverda team for the fun times, and Ian Morrison in particular. Not only was he responsible for putting Drmsby and Steve in contact, but also very generously provided financial assistance while we were getting going. 2011 would not have taken off the way it did without him - thanks Ian!
