Wild Winton Weekend

Spent the weekend at Winton, about 200km's north of Melbourne for another of our Superbike School track days.

Winton Web Site

There were 90 odd there inc. Stets and I soaking up the sun and thrashing our way around a fairly technical little circuit.

I have a pile of onboard footage so if anyone's interested, I'll post some. Meanwhile a couple of dodgy snaps.....

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Talking 90 !!!

Farkin ell Dave, the circuit looks about the size of Shah Alam ? or PG ? 90 riders there would be motorcycle suiside. I take it there were groups and time slots and organisers. You didnt have to climb the fence and bribe the cleaner did you

We should never forget how lucky we are here

Hahaha, bribe the cleaners.... I remember that.

Yeah they run 3 groups of 30 which seems to be determined by lottery??? and we got bundled in with the plebs. Who by the end of the day must have been well and truely sick of Stets and I blasting past on the straights and sticking it down the inside of all day. I'm not sure I got a single lap all day without passing at least a few.

The long (hahaha) circuit is 3.0km's and believe it or not they run the trucks and V8's there!!!

Yeah get the sweeper wrong and you'll be launched into next week.... not quite FIM spec.

Uncanny similarity just a little less traffic on yours.
