Team Torque Racing travelogue... Day -2 (1 day before scrutineering)...

Had an amble around the paddock this morining - all ready a number of teams are setting up and undetaking their fianl prep prior to scrutineering tomorrow (Friday).

Caught up with a few friends and faces, and found Tony (Schattat) and Ed busy prepping their bikes in the shade, have undertaken a long journey last night to reach Douz in the small hours, and grab a few hours sleep in a nearby hotel...

Tony had bought a box of RNS equipment with him, having not had time to fit it all prior to shipping the bike last week:



Team mate Ed Taylor (they are both entered in Malle Moto) is the only rider on a 2-stroke this year - a KTM 300 EXC - and was also busy with last minute prep:



Across the car-park, Patsy and the Desert Rose Racing truck pulled in early this morning, again after a long night drive south from Tunis... Dave Peckham from RMS had travelled down from the UK with them, and RMS will be looking after the US contingent literally under the Desert Rose banner, or at least a spare canopy!



Now we just have to wait for the rest of the riders, and our own team bikes to arrive! Jx
