    Me and Tim and Pye will probably all be sporting the Ďdecathlon/Quechuaí look. Itís what happens at this age.

    Tim does seem to like doing things in three. Be very careful when he's wet.

    Some ace racing going on.

    The green lane overtake for the lead was full balls out.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    Manta back out. Wohoo!

    Been watching this on and off via the live feed Kev posted

    Weather looks fantastic! I bet you guys are having an amazing time!

    Dave - There was some footage in the pits with a crew changing the brakes. They literally unplugged the brake line, took the disc c/w caliper etc off in one go. New one back on. Less than 60 seconds.

    I've been twice. 10 years ago now!! I fancy this next year. Who's up for it?

    Our tradition of going out every other year seems to work in our favour when it comes to the weather!

    So anyone wanting to go out next year, speak to Walker, he's good with wet weather gear.

    Was watching one of Misha's recent vids. He was talking to Tim Schrick. He was showing Misha the complete brake assembly in one go. The brake flexy had a quick release fitting which doesnt require bleeding. Trick stuff!

    Fond memories from 2009.

    Fabian!

    Anarky, a hangover & the collapsed bed.

    Gary & the balcony / sunburn incident

    Langeveld being locked out, in his pants.

    Gary shitting himself and telling Jim's mum.

    Oakie, looking like a tramp at Werseifen.

    My eyes burning when having to use the toilet after you!

    Was just reading that Manthey racing's 2nd placed 911 GTR has been disqualified from the results due to car producing more than the allowed power in a post race dyno session.
