Thought I'd put some pics up and in order to give those who didn't attend a flavour of the weekend.

The group line up for the practice lap on friday afternoon.
Image

first to the corner are Nobby the nob and Average mark
Image

Followed by the mysterious birdman and Chris
Image

then come the worzels, Heathy and Simod (F*ck me, Heathy is on a retroBike !!!! :shock: )
Image

On to the evening and the BBQ fires up
Image

Saturday morning and the stand starts to pull a crowd
Image

Heathy enjoys the sunshine
Image

Chris, Marcus and scott discuss tactics
Image


Next post will be the race itself !!!
