    Ah fair enough, :-)

    I just had a look at the weather there, "feels like minus 7" ! Poor sods.

    And another 13th in the final race. Appallingly cold, very slippery, not a lot of fun. Points in all races though, and bike and boy still shiny

    Hope it's a bit warmer at Donington in a few weeks...

    Good show, no point crashing and burning in the first round.

    About 20 or so entries, I think...

    Not all of them lasted the whole weekend, though...

    New bike, new competitors, bad conditions. That given he did well to finish and not bin it, probably be wise to spend the next couple of races just getting to know the bike.

    well have to admit to the weather conditions were horrible all weekend. Friday was socking wet and Tom had an off in FP1. Qually we ended up 15th on the grid and made the wrong tyre choise so ended up 20th, then race one Sunday some how Tom went from23rd to third!!!! Good start making up about 8 places by Paddock hill!! Slowly picking off people each lap. Come red flag he was 4th place. Restart and kept third place up to the chequered flag. There was a 10 second penalty for passing under a yellow which he gave the place back but still ended up 3rd in class and 5th on the road.

    All in all was a good weekend being back in the pits. Roll on Snetterton for Bemsee sometime in April and BSB in just 24 days time.
