Who else is going? I know there's one other but I can't remember who you are. Any chance of adding a few more VTRs?

What's the age cutoff? For bikes, not riders!
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Seems like 2000. But it's a bit vague as their site said 1995. When I spoke to them and booked they were fine with the Storm. Although they suggested later models had their number plates removed as it sounds like some riders can be a bit, how should I put it, rock-like with their personal views.

Practical Sports Bike say quite specifically that bikes 'in the spirit' of the mag are fine. Listing early R1s, Millies and the like as OK. So by my reckoning an SP would be fine.

It sounds like a much more relaxed atmosphere than a normal track day.

Hmmm.
2004 SP2?

What's the track like?
Point and squirt like cadwell and knockhill, or open and flowing?

Knob of the day award goes to me for breaking my Firestorm before i left the paddock. Dropped it off the stand and broke the gear lever and foot peg. Thanks to Nick for offering replacement parts

Some very nice machines there. But sadly no photos or video
