Am seriously tempted about coming and being dragged round by you guys next year.

Ian you need this in your 2019!!!!! I watched a few vids before I went and they really don't show the elevations of the track. The track is like Cadwell on steroids.

If you want to see how to ride it properly watch WSBK this weekend.

I would post my vids but most of them had my 2nd gear failing.

Done it back in 2016 and was amazing. But felt the little 600 struggled the legs against the 1000''s.
The back section of the circuit is just like a roller coaster.

I loved the first 2 lefts turns, that's where my pic was taken.

Wow what an amazing track that looks fantastic. From what i can see it looks like a spread out group as well not your normal UK track day with loads of people around you.

Really have to try and see if i can get here :-o

Yes track was awesome, not to many in the group. Towards the end of Sat and Sunday I was in the wrong group as traffic was my issue. Next year I'll be in inters and hopefully have a full gear box
