Hope to be there 5-6 pm Friday for the induction.
I've booked a place in the campsite not knowing about the free camping,
I assume we can leave the bikes in the paddock though.
I will bring my gazebo which I can put up in the paddock to give cover for three or four bikes.
Or put the sides on and give cover for five or six cold bikers sheltering from the elements - or one very depressed biker with his bike on tick over.

The 'Terminator' strikes again.

No video from me Martin however i was the next one round the corner after the tumble so yes, i am the bastard that nearly run you over :D :D
Didnt single you out for special attention because i nearly ran Steve Parrish and his Mrs over in the paddock shortly afterwards.
Hope the ribs join back correctly, dont want you looking like a cardigan with the buttons done up out of phase!

Good to meet and chat to some of you in the paddock (Al, Doug, Martin and errr - oh, I'm hopeless with remembering names !) A good weekend all round :)

Hope the ribs join back correctly


Cracked ribs, Martin ??? Hope they heal soon.

Likewise Mark.

Bit shocked by some of the results.
Fastest Endurance lap(practice) 1. 14s
Winning teams fastest lap 1. 15s
ICGP fastest lap 1. 15s
Lansdowne 500cc Manx Norton 1. 21s

How on earth do they go round only 6 seconds more than the endurance bikes with tubular frames, diddy swingarms and 3 inch sidecar tyres?????????????????????
And why are the endurance bikes 3 seconds a lap slower than a standard Z1000J1???

OK i made the last bit up but; Lansdowne Brit iron going that well i am seriously confused :shock:

Good to meet you at long last JB and youre right, i had pneumonia on the Friday / Saturday and heat stroke on the Sunday, exhausting stuff.
More important though; how did you get on with the turbo and did it terrify you sufficiently to do it again?
