I caught up to the smoking Bonnie, but turn 4 ( in the clip) had been 'patched' and it had tar snakes on my preferred line and the BMW got a bit squiggly in that corner ....and the hairpin. They stopped the practice on Friday due to tar bleed.

Old Bonnie ride was a seasoned campaigner as he swept past on the infield on turn 3, and 4 and was able to hold speed down the straight...... so I went deeper into turn 6 past on the outside and held him off on the hill, thru turn 1 and 2 and 3 until that clip again where he passed me.Was great fun....a tail end battle.
I caught up with him later with his gearbox all in bits and he said something like " you got me on speed"...
In the next race I caught up to what turned out to be a Norton 850, passed him on turn 6 on the outside and had a real race on to the finish where it was very close.... He said he backed off as he only had drum brakes. ( the finish line is very close to turn 1)
Awesome weekend thanks for posting Bender.
