Croft - so wet it was abandoned


Harewood - rained for most of the day


3 Sisters - rained for most of the day


… and tomorrow not Shelsley but rather a regularity rally in north yorkshire and guess what - thunderstorms and showers all day long.


Looking forward to another damp day

Shelsley Walsh TRR championship day on Saturday was mostly dry. But loads of hanging about as it a big weekend for the venue.

Last run was wet and v slippery after being held in the paddock for demo runs and a transit taking cameras up the hill for Sunday on you tube.
Frustrating as it got wetter and wetter whilst we were waiting.

Then rear wheel puncture on tow car on a narrow lane when leaving. Destroyed tyre getting to a safe place to change the tyre in the rain.

Ah well thats motorsport.

We had a motorcycle track day at Brands GP circuit on monday the week before last.

It had been 30c for weeks....... yes it poured down with rain until about noon on the day!

Sunny in the afternoon though and had a blast on the Hypermotard

Seems Brexit has first effects on weather.

The rain for England, the sun for the continent....ha ha :-)
