thsi guy didn't. I saw him go down, he ran a bit wide on the hairpin - would have made it easily but I guess he target-fixated - went on the grass, stuck his front brake on .. and down he went

I liked it - it mostly sweeping curves & it's not flat like you might think for an in-field track. it's not especially technical I don't think - nothing terribly wiggly and no huge braking at the end of looong straights. it does have some nice left-handers, which are a bit of a rarity on the UK's clockwise circuits

Cheers for that, i'll book it tomorrow with a bit of luck, if anyone else is planning to do it with "focused events" say your a member of the Ducati sporting club (DSC) and you'll get 10% off
Every little helps
