NEMCRC Croft 2-3 April.

  1. Here we go then. My entry confirmed today ;)

    Just got to figure a way to pay for it now :eek:

    One bike is pretty much ready but for a few details. The other one is in the middle of a full engine/chassis refresh so will be a wee while yet.

    Looking forward to this now. It's always nice to go to Croft. It's a challenging place to go. Bumpy and very quick round the back. Tower to Sunny out has to be one of the best pieces of tarmac in the UK IMO.

  8. Well it was wet yesterday and I didn't do too well. Just couldn't find my wet mojo.
    I qualified 23/26 and finished 16th in my first race.
    I only got one race as they ran out of time. I should get three today but we don't start until 12 so we'll be hard pushed I imagine.
    It's drying up here pretty quickly. Hopefully the rain will stay away.
    Also, thanks to @ginger_chris who came along yesterday to help out. Thanks mate.
     
  9. You seen Jack F?
     
  10. Seen him in the holding area. I think. That was it :D
     
  11. Not my photo but someone I know put it on facebook

  12. @ginger_chris You had a better weekend than me fella ;)

    Not a great weekend it has to be said. I couldn't make the bike work in the wet and as it turns out, I couldn't make it work in the dry either. Placed 19th and 21st in the first two races lapping 5 seconds slower than I should/could be. I just couldn't make it happen which culminated in me getting frustrated, trying too hard whilst caught up with slower riders resulting in a highside out of Sunny Out [​IMG]

    Fuckin ouch!! Feeling it today. Maybe I've broken a couple of toes. On my clutch foot too which was entertaining on the drive back last night. There's also a hole in my elbow i can stick a finger in :eek:

    I'll mend and so will the bike.

    Clip on, brake lever guard, footpeg and brake pedal. Bit a gaffa tape and it'll be up and running again.

    Again many thanks to our @ginger_chris for helping out all weekend [​IMG] And to my mate Paul. I'd have struggled to pack up and load the van without their help yesterday evening.

    :)

    Bob, sorry I didn't say hello.

    I came looking for you on Saturday Afternoon. Albeit on the hunt for spares lol. But I couldn't find you.

    Crap weekend for me, crashed out in the wet on Saturday. I was Ok and the bike was the usual things broken. Pieced it back together for Sunday but it was just damage limitation and try and finish the races. I couldn't get in the groove so didn't enjoy the weekend to be honest. But hey these things happen so looking forward to getting back out in a couple of weeks.

    Sorry to hear about your off, I did see a bike laid on the side out of sunny out but didn't realise that was you.

    Should've messaged me on here, I might have seen it and been able to help. Are you going up to East Fortune in May? I think that'll be my next one now.
