    Yep it was Trakdayz.

    Yes. Historics and MCRC have put up dates for race rounds. Think they are all doing a couple of swaps so MCRC arenít running round 2 & 3 on the same weekend so itís not final yet.

    Between all 4 providers there are plenty of days to play especially if you can do race days to.

    Yep your onto it.

    He did throw up a vid on YouTube which I am guessing from the time on the video crossing the line at the start and end of the lap that it was Samís lap but never stated it.

    Iíll leave it up to him to post here if he wants it to be seen and known who it was. I imagine there could be sponsorship issues if your seen on the wrong bike.

    Pretty dam impressive to watch either way whoever it was. So fast and smooth.

    The Rider or the bike? If we are talking about the rider then I suggest a little weight loss program at least till you don't roll anymore will no doubt help the lap times a bit

    Sadly that's not me on the bike, but due to the riders sponsorship arrangements, I'm not going to state categorically who it was... That is probably enough to work it out though

    So it was ď The Stig ď testing the waters for a new career since Top Gear has gone to shit

    At least you now have a video instruction book of exactly how to do it Tim and proof that the bike can do it.

    Sorry, meant the bike, although the clapped out ol' bastard riding it has more than a few mechanical issues of his own......

    I'll have to put in an application with the Minister for War and Finance, in triplicate, 2 weeks in advance, and see if I can borrow my balls back for a day.

    News from the Manager of Collie Motorplex, for those of you into track riding. I just thought I'd ask at the source.

    To: Paul D

    Hi Paul
    We have another track inspection by CAMS/MA at the end of April then hopefully soon after we can open the extension up Ė once licenced and opened everyone will defs know about it.

    The new track will be awesome and everyone is looking forward to it Ė 2.5 hours isnít a long way to travel after all.

    Thanks
    Anna Farrell
    Manager

    They have also removed all the rubber from the corners at turn 4, and 7. HCMC times (and moderns times) dropped by about 1 sec across the weekend due to the additonal grip. New lap record to Leigh Boujos of 45.7.

    Also supposedly there is going to be some re-surfacing done across turn 2 to try and remove/reduce the bump. All in time for Ridedays WA on the 14th, then Rd 1 of the WA State Raod Racing Championship on the Sunday (15th).

    Looking forward to the Superbikes going around there in the 44's.
