Trevor turned up with the Velo, but he has been working such long hours recently that the bike had had no prep at all! A couple of laps was all it took to go bang! A closer inspection in the paddock showed a collapsed piston, not a pretty sight.
Gav turned up with the Ducati which I took out for practice and then both championship races. Due to unforseen problems it was fitted with the spare, low compression top end but still seemed to be going well. I had a couple of good races, finishing fifth and sixth, not too bad for starters.
I took both the Rudges out as well. I dropped out of the pre 34 race with gearbox problems but managed an eighth in the 250 class before a slipping clutch got the better of me. Both Rudge engines were working fine which is the main thing.
So all in all a good first meeting for team wildcard.
