Waiting to board the train to come back to Blighty after a great fun weekend. Did a lap each in Gavins van Sat morning to see where the damp patches were and a biker was down and motionless so the track got shut for an hour, hope he was ok. Track finally opened again for bikes mid afternoon and we got out in dry and patchy sun conditions. The track got shut another couple of times during the day for accidents, one was a new Civic type R 'totalled' big style, ouch. It was busy and brilliant as usual. We got three more laps in before calling it a day. Happy days.

I watched the whole thing - brilliant (except the 2 minutes of grass gazing near the end!).

What bike were you on? Looks like a single sided swingarm?

About 20 seconds after you there's a chap on a yellow bike you kicks out at a car, I think. Big respect to the rider and pillion on the black bike near the start.
