    The weather so far is awful. Cold grey & wet. I was glad I was only trying to bed in new pads & tyres tonight 'cos the track was at it's evil nastiest. A developing dry line but with frequent, light, invisible showers. On a lap with Andy in the car, I braked for Breidscheid at dry speed & the ABS came alive. Wet. We managed to scrabble around the corner but I am not sure how.

    There are loads of lovely classics turning up. If the weather changes it will be brill.

    All the usual suspects seen so far. Bren, Ed, Ron & Andy.

    Some bikers were brave enough to go out. They fell off.

    The weather just got worse & worse. Rain all day & then fog. From DH to SX vivibility was about 30m. I now know what it is like to be Bren. Blind&#33;. Most people did one lap & then left. Sensible :(

    The car park looked like a scrap yard after the track day.

    Met up with Bren, Ed, Ron & Andy. As usual&#33;
