Mood: Channel Swim is now a (bad) memory not a dream
'twas a cracking day. We missed out on the BBQ last night, (sorry Jon & Claire) cause we left late and didn't get to Oulton till quite late, had something to eat and a beer and went to bed. Woke this morning to see the BBC TV news with 'scorchio' right across the country and a big black rain cloud over the North West, opened the curtains and true enough, it was raining, begger!!!

First couple of sessions were wet, but a dry line soon appeared and by mid morning it was dry except a couple of corners, by about midday it was dry and stayed that way all day. We got a full 7 sessions in with very few fallers all day, although a couple of DSC boys will need to get the T Cut out.

I was late on the circuit as I spent the best part of 2 hours trying to help two customers get through the noise meter, one of them had travelled all the way from the IOM and was riding a beautiful classic, but boy was it loud, got him out in the end though.

I spent most of the rest of the day instructing in all groups on tyres I should have changed before the previous trackday at Cadwell - the rear is now well out of shape. Tried to help out a few of the DD boys with how to race Oulton and did a few sessions with DSC peeps. Had a session myself with one of our instructors which helped me out tremendously.

All in all a cracking day, met loads of DSC peeps, mixed it with the DD boys and had a great craic.

Sorry if I didn't say hello to everyone, but it was a busy day for us. I'm off to Croft next on Saturday July 8th, then it's of to Mondello for a long weekend - yehaa!!!

Good luck to everyone racing there next week.

It's a great track, I think everyone enjoyed the hell out of it!
Overnight rain meant wet track to start, but byu session 3 it was dry. It's damn slippy when wet, especially when the Caterhams dump their sumps the day before!

First couple of laps out, I was totally lost. Didn't have a clue where the corners were cos so many of them are blind. Statrted to get the hang of it by the aftynoon tho and it was good fun... there's plenty of overtaking spots and loads of room to get by.

Looking forward to the race, but only going out to play if it's dry!!!
