Yea Locke if your there step forward and re introduce yourself I have trouble recognising people I meet the first couple of times when I'm focused on something else I asked BMW Motorad's top factory race engine builder to leave the garage at Assen because he did not have a pass and he was looking around in ordinary clothes but he saw the funny side later when he came back with our factory support engineer later. I'll get you some tea or coffee and a dry place to stand or sit for a while.

VERY impressed with young Bradley. He was untouchable.

Shame for Leon, but at least he had a better outing in race 2. "Don't know what is going wrong..." is not a good way to start the season.

Shakey maximising his points tally in a difficult weekend. Looking as good as ever.

Season started, looking forward to more.

Hoping to actually attend a couple of races this year.

Yea conditions were very difficult and Bradleys team are based a few miles away at Mallory Park so they have local advantage and unchanged setup from last year so quicker to get working settings we know the Suzuki is a bike that handles from all the years we represented them and horsepower is not a Donnington requirement to fill the gaps, there was two ways of going safe for the championship or all out for the win a lot of good riders did not feature in the standings.

Always interesting in sketchy conditions like that. Hence my comment about Shakey doing exactly what he needed but not risking too much. He knows what he's doing.

But my god Bradley did well. Interesting to hear your comment there but even knowing this he had a lot of pressure on his young shoulders and dealt with it so very well. Also has the added bonus of him looking like a cartoon character!

Just watching the highlights... I'm loving the flames coming out of Ellison's R1 on overrun, like a flamethrower! :tonguewink:

The Ducati's are normally the loudest bikes on the grid but this year the R1s seem to be distinctively louder, also the McAms bikes colour scheme this year looks much better.

Well at least someone had a good time up and down weekend at home Dan Keen won the feature Tandragee 100 race and broke the lap record, Farmer won the Superstock race at Oulton Park, Christian Iddon fell off and damaged his left hand was medically excluded and Michael after getting a third at the le mans 24hr motorcycle race last weekend with Christain could not pull it together for a good result. A well there's the NW200 next week and the Isle of Man TT before the next BSB round no car park racing as the guys say for a few weeks.

Shakey Byrne in hospital after crash at Snetterton testing. Operating on his spine but expected to make full recovery.

There is some confusion on the recovery from old stories of 2017 but he has hit an non air fenced wall which is normally covered at a BSB round but this was a track day yet unconfirmed. As with everything there are many different versions but it will be a very limited story with the money of Paul Bird, MSVR and a current BSB champion very seriously hurt and the possibility of something not done every media guy at the NW200 so lack of video and pictures I think only 24 BSB riders at the event we had Michael Laverty at the test and until I get the info direct from him and what I've heard at the NW200 its not good.

NW200 Saturday racing tonight on TV BBC Northern Ireland the reason Michael Dunlop Could not catch Glenn Irwin in the final Superbike race besides lack of horsepower. As she sat on the stand as we were packing up Saturday Night that's why road racing is a real mans sport 190 MPH on that down university straight Dunlop Tyre.
