    Nice one. I thought you'd mentioned 19th before, but I was due to be working away that week, now I'm not :D
    I'm in a similar boat to you as I rotated the rear for Mallory, but it won't be any good for Donington, so I'm just gonna buy a new rear and think what to go for when it's worn out early next year.

    ok I might get a couple of D212 racers, they seem a great price (much less than SC's) and the last ones i used on my blade were very sticky, can take them off and store over winter to use again next year?

    your link is not working, do you have his name on TDR?

    oops, the link had an expiry.
    His name is 9rossifumi46. I've had some off him before and picked them up in person.

    Thinking about it, if you end up buying new then let me know what you're buying and where from as I'm getting a headache from all this searching :eek:

    What a great day. Lovely weather other than a damp 1st session.
    I need to consider my gearing though, it's too low for big track like Donington.

    Here's a video of a few laps.
    There's a yellow at 2:25 with someone taking to the kitty litter and a red at the end as someone dumped it in the middle of the hairpin.

    It was my first time at Donnington, will definitely be doing it again! awesome track, weather was great to us after a misty morning. I struggled to get clean lines through a number of corners but thats just lack of knowledge and rushing into them too hot. Along with a mare of a braking issue that resulted in me swapping the MC i enjoyed the day.

    I was on a 08 blade with a red tailpiece if you have anyother footage
