A really nice piece of engineering, and, very rare to boot. I took a pic of the information board he had on the front of the bike, but it has come out blurred...bugger,
I was amazed at the number of classes and the number of entrants, ranging from under 100cc to full blown race speck superbikes along with sidecar units and even a class for 3 Wheeler's.
What made me laugh, was the higher spec, modern bike's...aka, cbr600 gsxr 750 etc were running in the low 9's and along come's Mr Mcguinness on his crf450, running mid to high 8.s as they say " the man can ride" and he's not to bad at getting of the line either,
As I say, a very good (if somewhat long) day out, and the event was much better than I was expecting It's already in my diary for next year.
