  2. Phil's going down again and taking the famous ShadowFax racer with him..
  3. Well, I'm riding to bright with NedNed , not spectating :couchpotato:. Nevertheless, sounds like a great weekend, maybe worth a group ride down there for at least one of the days??
  4. No sidecars. Cut the best bit away.
  5. No room in the schedule apparently. 520 bikes entered!!!
    a shame though, I agree.
    However, a great weekend, great bikes, great racing. . . but the Poms won!!!!
