What can I say? It was a fantastic day out! Every rider out there today deserves full credits, they put in an amazing effort which gave us racing that was spectacular to view. The sights and sounds are just indescribable, an experience that will excite and humble any rider.
A number of riders had a few “off's” (or DNF), but some did require some extensive medical care. I hope they are all well and have very quick and painless recoveries. As they say some riders fall off, some get back on, some do not, some can not...
After last years utter wash out, which led to the events cancellation, today was a fabulous return to form. My pictures and video of the event are of novice quality but I will post them to this site as soon as I get to a high-speed connection.
Next year can't come quick enough...unless I force myself to get over to some WSB and MotoGP rounds...watch this space.
Keep the paint up and the rubber down.
