Hi johnu

It's a long drive from Trowbridge and I'm already half was there compared to you lol :D . We have won at Pembrey before so hoping for positive results.

Cheers Geoff

Hi dd,

Both crew and rider were a bit rusty, we had a busy 3 days getting up to speed. We've had good results at Pembrey so we are looking forward to it.

Cheers Geoff

We raced at Pembrey last weekend. 2 x 3rd, 2nd and a win.

Not too bad but the bikes performance fell into two categories 1. Going good 2. I don't know?

1. The engine performed strongly on all days, I only changed main jets once (1 leaner as temp came up on Sunday p.m.)

2. The high falulootin Seeley chassis and bling Maxton suspension was giving spincter tightening chatter which prevented Gary from exploiting the engine. We never found a cure for it. The front end is being stripped and serviced (and returned to factory settings so we can start again)

We had a Marquee pit, with electric (handy for the fan heater in the van at night too :up: )

Well were out at the CRMC Classic Festival at the weekend with Richard Llewellin riding. An encouraging start is that the suspension issue with the forks has been solved. The not quite so positive news is the it took us until the last race on Sunday to finally get the jetting near right. Conditions were very humid and hot and we somehow lost 2000 rpm on our usual baseline settings. Eventually solved by going down from 360 to 320 mains (and could have gone leaner still). 2nd in the last race and if Richard had a bit more practise at getting it off line we would have been challenging for the win.

We also shared our pit with these two miscreants

Dang noisy little so an so's though :D
