Falling off is definitely not on the agenda, finishing (hopefully on the same lap as the winner) is the 1st objective. I had a good time on the SV at Castle Coombe although the amount of track time worked out at near £5 a lap :lol: . All good experience and I now have an impressively scrubbed rear tyre.

Cheers Geoff
Sunny, racing is bloody expensive. I thought I might have a go at the European Singles championship but the bloody entry fees are 300 euros a round!

Hi ash,

Turned out to be an expensive weekend. I entered 3 races + transponder hire + insurance + getting there & back etc. Holed a piston on lap 4 of 6 in the first race, no refunds. Bike was going well up to point of expiring :D . I will do better next year, engine in the process of being re-built and upgraded.

Doesn't look like a lot of clearance in that pic? or is it just the angle?

I think it's just the angle, Hooli. The pipes are very close to the centre line, of course I hardly had the chance to explore getting the bike properly leant over as I the number of laps I got in was pretty small. Lessons were learnt however and if I had waited until next season I would have had knackered the engine without a winter to get it sorted. Holed the left hand piston, running under jetted was the most likely culprit, and the mechanics fault entirely (Damn, that'd be me then :D ).

Cheers Geoff
