Went racing last sun in Wales. 
It was bloody brilliant. There were some heavy showers that filled the track with deep puddles.
I thought this would meen an end to racing but as the track was so deep there was still plenty of grip. 
My 3rd race was my favorite , others were having real problems seeing but I seemed ok so I managed to take quite a few places from the back of the grid . 
It was so exciting , flat out on someone's tail looking for an opportunity to pass , water and mud flying in all directions. 
The track was 1/2 mile so I geared the rear sprocket different, but was still using 4th gear on the straits. 
It was fast. 
By the time the final came I was fucked . I had no more energy , kept making mistakes and came last. Never mind . 
Above ( in chequerd bash hat is Frank Chakotine, probely spelt wrong) his Triumph T100 is so fast and revy plus he's a top racer so he won the day . But giving him a good run was Guy on the lovely black an white Triumph 750 in the back ground. It was the 1st outing for him on this bike ( I think) an he was quick. That bike sounded fuckin awesome . I swear it sounded like a V8 when it fired up. 

CoBuilt Geoff . Nice form . 
Daves Harly and Trumpet. He rode them both but the Harly kept grounding out.
What can I say. It's a JAP , shame it didn't last the day. 
So, a bloody amazing days racing but that's nothing compared to what happened on Monday. 
I had to unscrew 1inch of 6mm wood drill out of my friends leg. It was bloody awesome, I wish I had time to take a picture but he was screeming at me to hurry up. 
Sorry forgot to say that Ian Roxbourgh took some of these pictures.
