It depends how close I can park the car to where we are camping. I've got a big Subaru Legacy estate and I like to leave it in the car rather than out over night. Can we park near the tents?

You can normally park next to your tent - unless Mr K has a 'master plan' for the campsite...........

4 days and counting...


:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D


Gonna be wet and shitty, expect it. Anything else a bonus. Seeing Chris2 face when I came in at about 2am to changeover will stick with me forever. The sideways rain, full waterproofs, soaked before you start, and slightly 'WTF are we doing' look cant be beaten.

What I have learnt from last year is that although it might get wet, cold, windy, shitty etc- stick at it. Need to be there at the end. I wasnt last year, but its a must as I know now.
Although the night monsoons where really quite special last year, by late morning on Sun, it was like a different course again.

Should be a fair few RB shirts out on the course, always gives you a great lift when you see this riding :) Pain shared is better :twisted:

aiming for something particularly retro for 1st lap antics this year. current thinking is jeans/denim shirt/or t, moustache, retro oakleys and helmet, on the overburys with flats. if anyone has any better ideas or can offer the loan of anything more suitably old school/ridiculous then let me know. there seems to be a fine line between old skool and village people/cowboy.
