    Belated post as I didn't book in advance. Just turned up on the day and they converted to to OPL.
    Spent most of the day on the Blade this time. Some good speeds up the straight. Compare these to the CB500 vids in July and there's a huge difference in speed, but not a huge difference in lap times.

    Yeah basically Fast & Inters riders ride together.
    At Cadwell I reckon mid Inters at any quicker than 2:00 then you'll be right in there. Do you know roughly what your times are?

    It pissed it down at Oulton today? I'm there next Wednesday. This was the last time I was there a couple of weeks back... terrifying on normal road tyres.

    Jesus, hip and femur is bad. Did you see what happened?

    I take it you were out today on road tyres rather than wets? It’s sketchy as hell round those two chicanes isn’t it?

    I was at cadwell on tues, bloody hot day, ran over a tiny piece of wire but it still punctured by rear was a huge red flag just after I came on and we had to stop for early lunch, hope the guy was ok but at least it gave me time to get new SC put on was a great day otherwise, been doing donington a lot this year and had almost forgotten how thin cadwell was :eek: going back to donny on 23rd hopefully :D

    no never seen it, no I never went out iv supercorsa's on, I need get some miles in, hardly road for 18 month, too much to lose and nothing to gain riding in that shit, could do with a blast this weekend up Yorkshire dales get my eye in again,

    wish I'd booked cadwell now SimonRR, bit of grass cutting is easily done around cadwell, same around Oulton park, theres a couple of sections u think if this goes wrong im fucked, in between clay hill and druids is one,
    yeah I need do donni before years out, just booked Oulton on tues better not rain, should be ok its Tuesday not Wednesday, always rains on Wednesday, hope no bodys booked that day,:rolleyes:

    Do you guys have dedicated track bikes or do you take your road bikes?

    I take my road bike - not ideal, admittedly. But I’ve started getting a hire van and taking it in that which makes the days less stressful.

    Will do! If you see a red/black RR6 and a black CBR650F then that’s us. I’ve not done seen any of the info for the day - is it a normal 3 groups thing?

    Yeah 3 groups with some of the California Race School instructors giving a bit of guidance so suspect the apex and corner entry cones will be out. I'm in Inters, good if we get the same garage.
