Anyhow good onya for giving it a shot. Bloody good thread.
Now that I know who you are I'll come and say g'day next time you're racing in the Pirelli series.
It was good to see Olly got a start in the red bull series next year. I saw him interviewed on the motogp coverage.
He has a big future ahead of him, we'll be watching him in motogp at some stage.

Cheers
Rob

The new van is coming along nicely, table chairs and spare wheels will go on the sides and there is plenty of space up the front for all the little stuff.

Last round at Philip Island has been cancelled, they couldn't fill the grid for the 8 hour so the event has been canned. This is extremely disappointing for me I was really looking forward to racing there.
There is a race meeting at Eastern Creek Formula Extreme next weekend trying to enter that, fingers crossed

Cheers
Rob

It's official I'm racing in the Pro Twins and Naked Bike class this weekend. I'm surprised my bike is in F1 and a Yamaha FZ1 is in F2 thought they should be in the same class.
