Ah, the glamour

Ah, the glamour

It’s cold and wet at Cadwell Park, so I’m writing this huddled in the back of my box trailer wearing all the warm clothes I can fit over my leathers.

The good news is that wet practice is probably what I need the most as I’ve so little experience of racing in the wet on proper wet tyres. So far it’s going pretty well.

Last night I had a real bit of luck. The small paddock was rammed and spilling into grass fields long before I arrived, but a big truck left just as I pulled in. The exceptionally nice chaps at Rod Harwin Racing shuffled a van for me, and hey presto I’ve got some hard standing. It makes all the difference, so big thanks to them and to Lee for spotting the van leave.

Lastly, hi to Jim and Margaret!

More news later. Hopefully involving sunshine.
