Sounds great Jamie.

Will the prizes comprise of pork products?

My bike is out of action so I doubt I'll be riding, will probably pop over with the camera though.  Get your best kit on and style every corner...

Jamie, you forgot to put the entry fee down...

Anyway, it's 20 and not the 30 that some of the peeps I spoke to had heard. Not bad for two races, proper timing and a practice day methinks.

Get down there and support this one, should be a good craic
(best be on your best behaviour mind...Wayne the one armed bandit Head Marshal and all that - reckon the power might go to his head  ;))

What a brilliant weekend. Good tracks, good weather and a good atmosphere. Perfect place for my first race. The night race was so cool and something that definitely has to be done again.
Thanks to Farmer John and everyone involved.

Aye, it was indeed a good weekend. Shame I couldn't stick around for the night race, it sounded mint. Great to see Jamie rolling back the years to take the Senior win too  ;).
Loads of people taking photo's too, any linkys to and of 'em?

Oh and Phil, what happened to you?
You missed out big time (Ginner in a skinsuit/armour bibtight - what a pin-up!)
