Finally! Get access to a 'puter! (Been a bit slack actually, Guiness to be draunk, etc...aaye..)
Our boy failed to complete the required 5 laps of practice, so was unable to race.Of course there were a lot of other people in the same way, but were allowed to race...Also some bikes clearly outside the rules...but there ya go. Never mind, still havn a fat time, helping some other guys to live their dream. Good shit.
Aussie boy Alex Pickett should have been a shoe in for the newcomers race, but never figured the 848 Ducati's 15litre tank wasn't gunna be enough. Still done good, finishing 8th after stopping for fuel every time round. Not bad. There was some talk of blowing the tank out for a cupla litres more, but the bloody things like 8 mm thick! Won't happen.
Oh yeah, and yesterday we won the 750 class at the Ramsey Sprint...with a Honda 4(5)00..WooHoo!
Better go fill our fuel urn...Will post pix when I get home next week.
