Club racing at Cadwell last weekend
« on: July 28, 2010, 02:39:49 PM »

Hi, here is my brother on his '05 bike at Cadwell last sunday. He's the highest placed novice in the Auto66 Super 1 class - 5th out of 25 in the championship so far, due to scoring decent points in every race (i have to big him up cos hes my brother LOL :roll:). His first time at cadwell -and first go on this bike- he was doing 1min 55's. Now on his 3rd visit he's doing low 1 min 43's. He thinks he can find 2 or 3 seconds next time and we both think there is maybe another second to be had out of the bike. A sub 1min 40 looks freakin' fast but a few more of those bloody GSXRs need to be beaten!

Thanks and I think you're right.. I have to admit it took me 5 rounds to dial the bike in as it had been perfectly set up for a much lighter rider with 16.5" rims - and then fooled around with I suspect. These have a very narrow sweet spot and Dave's feedback to me is always..ahem..brief!

We will concentrate on this championship 100% this year and then next year Dave wants to join a few clubs inc Derby Phoenex and just race any circuits that take his fancy so he can get some experience under his belt. In 2003 he did 3/4 of a novice season with Derby Phoenix but broke his back at Mallory and had to sell up as he couldnt work for 4 months. Its going a lot better this time round!

Thanks for all your support guys - come and say hello to us if you see us at the races :icon_thumright:

Mickster: f'ing hell..your car was written off..thats bad. I hope the family was ok. There was a bit or carnage out on the circuit that day too. Whats your mate's name btw?

Ahh - I think he has #80 on the front of his bike? He's very quick! I cant beleive how soon he's back racing. Dave only crushed one vertabra but he was bed ridden for nearly 4 weeks. Well, I'm glad hes better and I can only hope we manage to close the gap on him a bit in the remaining races. Say hi from us (#66 David Sigsworth) :icon_thumright:

If we are down that area and we see you we will definately say hello. I hope you get back on the pace cos your results before the highside sound great. :headbang:
