    Just noticed that this fella is going to WSS next year, with Jezza McWilliams. I reckon he can go all the way, he shows some talent. Jack Kennedy.

    He should have won the Championship, but machine problems at the last round robbed him. Went to Aussie 'veteran' Glen Richards.

    Tight racing

    Some serious trail braking going on into the chicane.

    This young blokes going ok to. Can't remember his name, but I do remember that he has Andrew Pitt in his corner.
    [​IMG]

    Can;t remember this kids name either, (a bit 'arabic'?), but he's from New York, and on a budget. He had to fly over by himself, cause his dad couldn't afford 2 tickets. 13 years old from memory....
    Shit now, what was I doing at that age...?:huh

    The Mountain. Differing styles, for sure. Seems like Nori Haga just couldn't come to grips with Cadwell at all. Obviously getting some advise frome his teammate, but laying rubber over the top just doesn't seem right.

    In the end, he ended up posing with one of my flaggie mates. ( I wonder how many times Nori's broken a collarbone?!)

    Brookesy, just completely out there. Entertaining for sure! And he's clearly enjoying himself.

    I have to say I was amazed at how smoothly these guys were coming down. No crashing or bashing, just one smooooth sequence. Sweet.
    (looking forward to seeing Brookesy at the TT this year...!)

    But the winner over the weekend was Tommy Hill, and this was about as much air as he got. Power to the ground, always driving forward. Plenty to learn from that I guess..

    All this is very well, but it's worth noting that if these guys were to get it wrong over there, and touch that lush wet green grass, they'll probably end up in the bar with you! Top track!
