Club bike racing,16th 17th March, Brands Hatch
« on: 05 March 2019, 06:08:34 PM »
Our race club holds its first race meeting of the year 16th 17th March,  it's not too expensive to get in, come and have a look.
Blue R1 number 30 in one of the garages, total access to all areas, pit lane, garages, you can get to see it all.
We are testing on Friday,free entry I think.
Some very fastriders ,loads of classes, 125s , two strokes, old classics. And all the modern stuff too.

Good for you Agricola and fair play. Over the years I 've met and have as friends people who are shit hot on a motorbike, or playing guitar, or amazing at art. And sadly none of them have made a living out of there talent.
As long as you're happy and enjoying what you do.Then you can't really ask for more. :) :thumbup

What an absolute choker. Was that the Bemsee meeting. Not much in the way of gate security either, I expect. Scratchers Lane/A20 then either M20 or M25 and gone. Bastards.

Yes Bemsee meeting, test day ,no security I guess.
Two years ago at Donnington we were all there, some I  garages some o tarmac in their own setups, someone jumped on a Ducati Ardmore past security, would not stop, no helmet, uptheroad and onto M1 , never to be seen again.
So we are all aware, eyes out, lock bikes,,

Had a day at Brands to watch Slim getting to grips with the Indy circuit. Managed a quick chat in his garage between practise sessions.
Did have a pic to post, but for some  reason, no doubt me, I can't.
Good luck for the weekend Slim, stay safe.
