The local Classic Bike Club turned out:





A seemingly endless line of BSA, Triumph, Matchless, Ariel, Velocette and Norton bikes; fantastic!

This was the first time that I'd spent the whole weekend at a GP; warm-up, pre-qualifying, qualifying races, "last chance" repercharge and GP heats. Neat to experience the whole thing for once. Set up the tent and raised the Union Jack!



Race one got underway with Belgian young-gun Benny Andriaenssen taking the holeshot ahead of Willemsen, this time with Dagwin Sabbe in the chair due to Gertie Eggink's ill health and the two Hendrickx cousins.



Willemsen soon reeled in Andriaenssen and cruised to an unassailable lead.



One of the best two performances of the heat came from British Champions Stuart Brown and Luke Peters who, despite qualifying in seventh, came poorly out of turn one back in the second half of the thirty rider field but fought back to finish fifth.



The other was from veterans Henk Soderquist and Tobias Sylwan who, having been disqualified in their qualifying heat when Sylwan fell out of the chair and Soderquist rushed back through the pit area to collect him without stopping, necessitating qualifying via the last chance repercharge and resulting in a second row start, fought through the field to finish sixth.

Disaster struck for Joris Hendrickx when his engine blew turning his 13 point advantage in the Championship standings to a 12 point deficit with Willemsen's victory.

A typical start-line scene but none were aware of what was to follow.



First, Jenkins and Girling bury it sending passenger, Pete Girling several metres up the track and their outfit over onto rider, Richard Jenkins.



Two Scandinavian riders have a less sensational but equally limiting coming together and, just about to happen immediately after the turn, World Champion Joris Hendricks and British Champion Stuart Brown have a coming together with two other outfits. Hendrickx is away in 28th place and Jenkins in 29th. Brown and Peters can't get the bike restarted!



They eventually rejoin the race in fifth place on the track but a lap down. It's to their enormous credit that they finished the race fourth on the track and in 16th place overall.

The 'start-to-finish' win goes to in-form Dutchman Etienne Bax.



Even Willemsen can't close the gap and it's clear from half way through that he settles for second place.



Joris Hendrickx did supremely well to finish fourth but must have been so disappointed having seen his 13 point advantage turn into a 16 point deficit.

Great RR. Norway is pretty nice. (I'm a native) Born and grew up a few hundred miles north of the Norwegian arctic circle. Just bring tons of money, because EVERYTHING is extremely expensive. Mostly...you guessed it....taxes.

No really. That's just beyond anything I've ever seen. Man








Too bad you didn't get too see Norway from the warm sunny side, but you can always come back - we're not going anywhere
Here's a sample pic of what sunny Norway looks like (from the RR in my signature)
