    Unlucky Julian. Hope we still get to see you again.
    Ring NL on Tuesday. Although short notice they may well have a reserve list?
    They ring around and you get a credit note reference if they're successful in filling the spot.
    Normally not a problem, I had to do it last year and it went swimmingly.
    Good luck.

    I know people were still ringing the NL office on Thursday when I was in there trying to get on this day. I'd call first thing Tuesday and there is a good chance you'll be able to sell the place.

    I'm on this - first track day for this year and first outing on new toy, MUST remember it's race shift.
    Might just have a supply of cake and may find one of you to help me get the bike out the van as I'm a weedy lass as don't want to drop it before I've started ;)

    There will be a few us there and we're always on hand to help wherever possible.

    May be an idea for the guys to post up a pic of their bike so you know who's who. (I'd do the same but the bike is being sprayed as I type and have yet to see the design)

    It is free to come and watch but you'll have to check Donny site to see if they allow dogs. I know they don't at MSV tracks.

    Real name is Craig I'll be riding this as the Blade is poorly

    [​IMG]

    Although I might bring the Blade all stripped down and take it out as I'm trying to find out which cylinder is playing up. So far since picking it up yesterday it running perfectly. A m8 is going to compression test it on Wednesday morning and if they are all normal maybe the problem is electrical and not mechanical.

    It is a bloody good laugh to ride and I even raced it for a season. It's obviously massively down on power compared to 1ltr sportsbikes though so I get destroyed on the straights. Donny isn't the ideal track for it but at tracks like Cadwell it more than holds it own and I can do a high 1.39 on it but that is pushing hard! Takes a bit of getting used to again after the Blade though as it feels light on the front end and flighty compared. Yep still instructing. Weather is looking good too! :D

    That's bloody good going.... Race with a dude called dan last year, he was on a tuono but was quick round cadders (can't stand the place personally but know 1.40 is hard to do)

    Yeah hopefully the weather will be good. Never had any instructing... Might grab you for a session :)

    Was he on a V4 tuono in the NL series with Superdan on his white leathers? If so I know him well and he used to own a Superduke. Yeah under 1.40 is difficult and even more so on a naked. My best lap there was in the NL endurance race on a Blade last year and I managed a 1.36.8. I didn't have much more to give but I do wonder if I could get a bit more in a sprint as I was trying to pace myself for a 60min stint. I almost had to be lifted of the bike when I came in lol. Sooo unfit :(

    Happy to go out with you dude. You might have to wait for me down the straights though lol.
