The layout of the 300 track makes for a nice mix of corners, always thought the 200 track was a little boring.

I had a good day at Brands yesterday, front tyres now mullered but f*ck it I had a good time!

Was getting the bottom of the exhaust downpipe on the ground around druids though which is odd (Akra system)

Dunno if anyone else is at Silverstone tomorrow (Thursday 11th) but I'm looking forward to it and hoping for dry weather. I'll be the one on the noisy curvy with a picture on the number plate.

Blue Curvy ? I was on my Red Curvy in white group, jeez was that a bit slippy in the morning. I've been unable to access the net for a few weeks so couldn't check who was going.

Yep two-tone due to mismatched spare panels! Ah, think I vaguely remember seeing it, tidy, stock? There was a silver pointy a couple of garages along (I was in 21), older guy, obviously knew his way around! Yes rubbish start to the day and a couple of really nasty bits, but at least it dried up and I had 4 dry sessions. I went out in the first two anyway to learn the track a bit more. Pictures should be here but not up yet (Sunday):

Got some Gopro footage, need to edit out an interesting lap. Turned out I was in the fast group, first time for everything! Only two guys slower than me but one of them you could have passed on a mountain bike. Did you go along to rub shoulders with the big knobs? I had a short but interesting chat with Simon Crafar.

It was my first time at Silverstone, so those wet laps were not wasted. Mind you got too cocky on session 5, coming out of The Loop ( really tight slow right) and lost the front end. Couple of scratches and had to put a bolt in to replace the end of the gear lever and still got out for the last session. As for hobnobbing with the stars not really,tho had a good long chat with the dude from MCN on his long term test new SV.
