Silverstone ESS sports day today

Well the Dukes were out in force today at this event. Shame it psssd down until around 1100hrs. Good job Ducati uk were there to lend out bikes....500 excess if damaged!

One guy highsided a nero 999 out of copse..........ouch!!!

Most of the incidents were in the pits there. The floor is so slippy, especially with the water from the rain.

I watched 2 999's dropped = brake levers and wing mirrors, and a very lucky chap on his 916 just about manage a save. I think both the 999's were Duc UK bikes aswell!

did you enjoy it?? i did once i got used to both wheels sliding most of the time - learnt alot about throttle control, and i thought the instructors were good - better than the average trackday. i was in a garage that had a granite tile floor(apparently ferrari laid it?) and it was like a skating rink.
