Right I'm back 4 days early with Adrians van and my road bike in it along with the spare ZXR400. Most of the race bike has gone in the skip.
Adrian is VERY LUCKY TO BE ALIVE, thankfully he is slowly recovering and will hopefully get a skin-graft soon. Knee doesn't seem to bad. He had to go back on Oxygen this morning as he has been over doing it with quite a few visitors, mainly marshalls.
Still not certain what happened, various reports from marshalls etc that point to either a problem with the bike or the bike clipping some debris in the road. As of yet I have found nothing obvious with the bike, no broken or loose clip-ons, same goes for the foot rests and the steering damper was all OK, all of which is amazing considering the state of the bike.
May have to save the pics for Pronto or Bike Sport.

The race had been going really well, finished lap1 in 13th place and then moved up to 12th at the end of lap 2 .
The pit stop went well , he completed lap3 in 11th place
Then on lap 4 with a likely finish of 8th place he crashed at the Black Dub and was air-lifted to hospital.

following day I pit crewed for Dean Silvester on the CSC Yamaha R1 in the Proddy 1000 class and low and behold he came off it on the final lap, this time it was a low speed spill at the Gooseneck which he walked away from with some minor bruising.

Give Shaun at R&S Performance in Worksop a ring, I believe he has some crankcases, drop me line if you do not have the number.

Chris.

Cheers Chris but I have a spare engine, besides the crankshaft is snapped off on the No1 cylinder big end only leaving the inner crank web for that cylinder, the conrod is also missing apart from the small end, the block is cracked up to the cylinder head, sump and clutch cover were ripped open and the generator has vanished. Hope to salvage the tuned cylinderhead and the race inlet cam, Ram airbox is salvageable but carbs need replacing as does the modified radiator.
Along with the two parts of the engine here is a pic of the other bits we salvaged
