Now that we are home, my little finger is slowly returning to it's normal pinky hue & my poor old bones are getting a bit warmer.:-)
Snow, sleet, relentless rain & relentless rain
, another typical Cadwell trackday
Eventualy ventured out on Matt Lawsons old 583 and teetered around the rivers & lakes that littered the Cadwell circuit, for a fleeting moment I thought I saw a peddalo in the lake that nestled in the dip along Park Straight, but then again it might have been a swan
It was slippery on the Diablo's, Paul was ahead of me on the Dunlops ( I will let him give a report on those), hauled him in a few times once the icicles had melted from the tyres, but due to a problem with the revs, ie, it would not drop below 4 to 4500 revs, it made the slower corners feel down right scary if you aproached to fast as the rear would push the front, had to feather the throttle in fear of losing the front from Mansfield through to Barn, so Paul would eek out the gap again.
There was at least 3 to 4 fallers per session, not because it was to wet, because it was just too cold & wet.
Only did the one session, that was enough, so we packed up and headed off for a coffee and bacon butty
Sam, Francis & Peter West where also not happy with the weather, but they are off to Cartegina shortly, so looking forward to warmer weather. Glynn & the Scooter Shop team pitched up near us , had the set of tyre warmers been on one of the bikes, they would have been going home with only one of them, as one of the tyre warmers caught fire & burnt one of the riders gloves along with it's self, quick thinking by a trackdayer next to them saved the day though.
Andy Challis and his lad popped up for a laugh at us all as well.
