    Just to be awkward, there's a first eh, I had clackers and rubics cube, and just to be even more annoying I memorised the formulas to do it and would regularly complete it in under 20 seconds, and once in under 10.

    We had one lad who was crap at it and could only do it when no-one was watching, yeah right so we said we would mess it up for him and when not watching we twisted one corner round making it impossible to do. Next time he turned up it was magically all done. Don't think he ever admitted the only way he could do it was to take it apart.

    We were in in grada 1c at the end of home straight, took no enjoyment from Lorenzo falling off on first lap but were gutted when Cal went down mid race. Wife blamed herself for putting him off waving the Manx flag! Can recommend this race, miles from anywhere but a wicked track and great facilities.

    Great pictures and that looks a good view. In 2015 I sat further down closer to the start line maybe 1a or 1b, which was only any good for the bikes while they were on the grid. The rest of the time was just watching the bikes wizz past. I think your seats were better for the whole race, whereas mine was ok just for the starting grid.

    You must have seen the Lorenzo crash from your view - a bit of a shock so soon in the race.

    I am sure I even got a bit of a sun tan watching it on TV it looked so hot :D

    Yes saw Lorenzo going a shitter and more sadly Cal sliding off mid race he looked so dejected! Very hot indeed which is not a complaint. 44 degrees showing on car dash as we waited 90 minutes to get out of the car park...the only negative is that you can only view from the area you have a ticket for, would liked to have wandered up to the top of the hill for a skeet too.

    @okeloon - when I was there I spoke to some Brits and they reckoned that they were allowed to go into other areas on the Friday, but by Saturday and of course Sunday, they could only access their ticketed area like you say.

    Sounds like it was a good trip even though poor old Cal took a tumble !

    Was it last year he got a wasp down his leathers ? I remember somewhere in Spain he pulled over in practice, really quickly and half stripped down after he got a wasp in his leathers - oohhh :eek:

    Lorenzo isn't racing this weekend. Called it a day after another off. Got to admit that whilst I am not his biggest fan I think it was a sensible choice. If you're not in the title race and you are effectively number 2 in a team that you are leaving, then why risk next season as well as the rest of this one.
