In brief we only had one and a half days of rain out of five days there.
The real problem was that it rained nearly every evening. The sun wouldn't really heat up until noon, so you only had a window of opportunity of about five hours. It was always after 3.00pm that the circuit would finally dry out enough to consider venturing out. It wasn't so much the dampness, but the puddles that always appeared on your entry line into corners. This would mean you spent more time concentrating on the puddles and not you’re chosen line. Every time you got a bit brave you would have a moment and loose confidence. The last couple of hours though on Monday afternoon made it all worth while for me. This is one fantastic circuit and I for one will be returning in the not too distant future.
The frill of riding this place is too alluring. If you ever get the chance to ride here, take it you won’t be disappointed..

When we were there last year it rained for a morning and the track then took hours to dry even in 20C+ temps, weirdest thing I've seen, but as you say Jon it's a cracker and I will be going back hopefully at some point this year

I absolutely agree - the track is awesome. I just wish I knew my way around it!

I'd love to go back when it was warm and dry, it would be a lot of fun.

I think I went around in about 3 minutes. Could have been longer ...

I think I did about 7 or so dry laps.

Sorry you had a tough time, TP. Good to see you bigging up the No Limits boys, though, in spite of your disappointment. Dave's the best instructor I've had, that's for sure - on a par with WJB no question - just soooo patient and determined to make me understand what he's saying. Brilliant!

Now get fit and stop winging :P
