No Limits Track Days
 
I got back from Jerez at 2am'ish this morning after 5 days on track with the No Limits lads - including our very own WeeJohnnyBee. I haven't written a report yet, and I'm not really sure I want to, but I just wanted to plug No Limits and the guys there.

I had a few minor hiccups while I was there and these guys not only helped to sort things out but were a great laugh and a really good bunch of blokes to hang out with. Even when I looked a touch suicidal. Special mentions have to go to Mark, Dave and of course WeeJohnnyBee.

Dave even sorted out the equipment to get my clutch bled, then did it himself and just generally made sure I didn't descend into self-harming and well, others-harming too! He dragged me out onto the track yesterday afternoon, when I was looking for some petrol and a match, to try and make sure I had a good time.

I'm sure you've all heard the phrase "Familiarity breeds contempt" and WeeJohnnyBee could have been forgiven for not paying too much attention to Rattler, Jon and myself but he was every bit as professional as you'd hope and would still take the pish when required :D

All the boys were fantastic and I was very impressed with the way these guys ran things.

Gissa a free track day now fella's? Fella's?

Hope it wasn't all as bad as you make it sound mate?

The No Limits crew are top lads and to hear they looked after you is no surprise at all.

Gis a proper run down when you get chance then?

And if I set off to yours for a beer now it would definitely be shut when I got there so I am having one or two for you here ;)

No news from Rattler or Jon yet then?

Unfortunately it was that bad mate - I used just over one tank of fuel in 5 days of track time.

Yes, only 1!!!!! I covered around 80 very expensive on track miles.

Jon is probably tucked up in bed and Rattler should be on his way home I'd imagine. He was on track today as well. I got a text from him and today was the best day since we'd been there.

Typical ...

Mate, it just reads like a list of excuses and makes me sick of it all but here goes ...

I had a series of clutch problems (damn ex-WSB slipper), it pished down a lot and the track took ages to dry because it was so cold etc, I didn't go out in those conditions (when the bike was working!) because I didn't want to risk binning it in those conditions on rennsports - the bike is expensive and I have a large emotional investment in it, I'm so unfit I could only do 5-6 laps without getting really sore and cramping (4 mths of nursing a broken ankle I suppose) ... blah blah blah

I didn't come off though.
