I would normally go to Cassington on one of mine but I was freezing my nuts off doing a trackday in Brno. Heatwave (and summer in general) seems to have missed Czech Republic

Re: Donington Endurance 2018

My Croz replica ran the entire weekend without incident or failure which is amazing. Shame it's so damn loud as i'd love to use it more often. Even managed to start on the kick start as i forgot the foot switch for my rollers.
