Not sure what happened there as was cruising, steady throttle, def no brake. I went a lot faster in first wetter session?
Maybe hit wet leaves? - who knows?


Held up a bit, but pleased overall as First time aroud the same corner was a "do I, dont I" nail it moment, but bollox to it ....its only plastic, metal , new bike .. money .. my health :)

Junking those Corsa 3's though at first oppurtunty. Said they were crap in the wet, shouold have followed my own advice! ....

Great footage Tony, and top marks for getting back on and riding like a man possessed! ;):hail

In the first three sessions there was only a narrow dry band around Barn (none at all in the first!) and you maybe strayed off it slightly, hitting some tree spunk? :O

I was right behind you at the time (as I was when Mark fell off in the session before) and it wasn't a sight that I really wanted to see, especially as your bike was oh so shiny before then! But, you bought it to use it.... :devious

Just one thing though - thanks for deciding not to plough into the back of me at the Chicane (Part A - 2.42)! :laugh:laugh:laugh

Cheers Chaps.

Stu, the wind is a lot less stuck out in the airstream on the gixxer than the TL, different turbulence I guess?

Had to laugh whe I saw this; look a mess!

Yep, great track. As I alwasy say, I love Cadwell, notr sure it loves me!

Frankly, I knew going to one last TD when I thought my year was over, on the new gixxer, and on those tyres, when it was torrential the night before, was pushing my luck. Amzingly little damage to both of us,

Funnt thing is, the rescue guy held my bike whilst I retrived my helmet, turned around and the bike fell over AGAIN, He was then hopping aorund on one leg, wincing in pain, whilst I was trying Hard not to crack up with laughter. Like the keystone cops out there :)

Sweet footage. Wish the organizations around here would allow that w/o having to try to hide the camera.
