Ok I have booked this really enjoyed it this year so could not resist getting my name down for next year.
I have been looking at flights and it seems they Do fly from Manchester to Almeria airport must have all been booked up last year. So when i confirmed a few things with the Mrs i will be booking these as well.

I actually packed a chair this time, so musical chairs it is then lol..
Saying that, might be worth having a look around when we get there, they might have some white garden chairs kicking around.

Ha ha, no it was a wet on wheel I noticed on unloading....with the heading to my pic of "Why"?
Been a good first day, Me, Kingfixer and rocket together in garage.
We had more red flags in the first 2 hours than we have had for the full three days. It all settled down the rest of the day which was good.
All a well wish you were here, pics and what not in due course.

People falling off, in fairness the track was a little dusty first knockings and some reds could have been yellows, but they opted for the belt and braces approach. I think this had a lot to do with the new lease owner of the tracK.

Brief report for the three days --- bloody awesome as ever, managed to get my best time down from 2.07 to a 2.03, very pleased with that, hopefully have this on film as Vince was behind me all the time with his camera.

I know I have some footage from rocket looking back at me as I saw his camera and tagged on lol.

Great three days, pleasure to Meet Rocket and his lovely family, really enjoyed this one, I suppose as my bike was running well, and no blown up rad issues this year things were good. Respectable improvement on times was a real bonus. But for me was my feeling on the bike, a lot more of a natural feeeling in my position, rather than trying to force myself into a position and having to work the bike, this time I was a little more fluid. Still buckets loads to improve on.
AWESOME.... roll on next year :)
