British Superbikes Cadwell Park. 28 August 2016

Ducati Trioptions paddock

August Bank Holiday and another round of British Superbikes at Cadwell Park, my local track. It's my favourite race series and track let down only by the scramble to escape the car park at the end of the day. It wasn't too bad this year I managed the 50 yards or so in a little over half an hour.

Lavertys teammate Christian Iddon crashed out in Q2 - the start of a disastrous weekend for him. He also crashed in both races.

British Superbikes Snetterton. 10 July 2016

First time at Snetterton for many years and I was greatly impressed with the whole layout and facilities. In particular the MCE BSB Victory Circle was a brilliant idea allowing fans to witness post race interviews of the riders by Matt Roberts, James Haydon and Jamie Whitam. Hopefully this will become a regular BSB feature.

Barton Bike Night. 7 July 2016

I dropped by for a quick look around quite early in the evening and even then only just managed to find a space to park the car. Just as in previous years there was a good atmosphere with a vast variety of bikes and people - but disappointingly there seemed to be too few trade stands.

Barton Bike Night

Early in the evening and the side streets filled up quickly.

Not sure what to make of this….

Jester tank paint scheme

Nice tank job.

Barton Bike Night

Strange concept… strange juxtaposition of bikes for that matter.

Eye catching 60's theme.


Honda RC213V-S

I forgot to post these images taken on my iPhone at the end of April. The event was the Classic Car and Bike Rally held in Church Square, Scunthorpe town centre and I thought I'd drop by for a quick look. The last thing I expected to see amongst the Morris Minors was a Honda RC213V-S!

Lots of carbon fibre

Honda RC213V-S front wheel

The Brembo Brakes are the same as the MotoGP bike apart from the carbon brake discs and pads.

The level of detail is amazing - then again it should be for the price.
