    This forum seems distressingly quiet, given that race season is once again upon us.

    So come on - who's racing what, where, how's the pre-season prep gone, give us the build up to the first meeting, etc.

    It's still too damn cold up here for racing However, quite glad that the season starts later up here, helps finances
    Got a practice day on the 27th March at East Fortune then first meeting for me is mid April. There are meetings before that at Knockhill but too pricy.Shame in a way cause it's goin to be on tv
    As it stands bike is waiting for oil/filter change,coolant(antifreeze) drop and a bit of fibreglass where fairing was decking out.

    first race last weekend for me, my bike went pop 5 minutes before qualifying, i borrowed a mates wet bike, swapped my wheels into it and then went out and crashed it in qualifying. Doc wouldn't let me race so I became pit crew for weekend.

    Doesnt sound like a great weekend! Hope all ok!

    Havent finalised all my plans as yet but definitely going to be wobbling round Darley Moor at least a couple of times and still trying to get couple of friends to run in the Hottrax Junior tag with me... bikes all ready with new Brembo m/c, chain, sprockets and oil/filter - tyres on order so not much else to do apart from actually commit to some dates!

    Ouch, that sounds like a very expensive weekend

    As for the original post as far as i can make out EffBee is the only resident Bemsee racer nowdays who had their first outing a couple of weeks ago at Brands. Round 2 at Snett at end of the month

    Cant see me troubling the scorers or wearing down the podium steps much this weekend*

    Not raced yet this year, did a TD at Mallory in Feb, damp and cold and three days in Portimao a week ago. Looking at a few rounds of Hottrax's Endurance this year plus a crack at the Southern 100 and Gold Cup at Olivers Mount. No Manx this year, possibly go back next year.

    Hmm, too late but a better answer might have been "in A&E"

    Mostly welding the holes up in the van, prior to doing oil & filter & other jizz on the bikes ready for Croft 9/10 April. After that a trip across to Tonfanau as ballast on 24 April, then a trip to Darley 25th for even more ballast. Then we'll see what the cashflow looks like
    Keeping a close eye on the weather at the mo- a late frost would be very annoying now I've flushed the winter antifreeze out. Still on the steelies of course.

    Bless me father for I have sinned.

    Went to spectate at the classics at Mallory today. Thinking of sorting out the Norton and doing some parades next year. Lead us not into further temptation.
