Likewise Al.....to be honest i was quite worried about taking the old zed on its first track day session, i always knew it was going to feel a little 'loose' compared to the slabside that hooned around the track effortlessly all day Saturday.....but i need not of worried, after a few laps warming the tyres up i was grinning ear to ear, riding smoother through the corners and gassing out on boost.

Not sure if i can do Cadwell as yet but will be using the zed as first bike next time for sure.....its very addictive :D

Was there an "official" trackside photographer for the trackday sessions ? I haven't been able to locate any yet ?

On the endurance legends website; facebook / twitter link, there were three different official photographers listed on the RHS but i cant see them there now and i dont use facebook twitter so cant access them to go and look.

I did look through one photographers offerings and thought they were pretty pedestrian and a bit un-inspiring.
