ARRC this weekend

The final race in the Asian Road Race Championships is this weekend at Sepang. Cameron is still in with an out side chance as long as Hammer has some kind of problem. The Petronas boys are sure to be trying hard on home turf and Papa Rod will be giving the old R6 a final spanking. Should be a great weekend, who is thinking of going up ?We are staying at the Pan Pac and Lensy has a new Canon 10D digital so should get some nice results.

The phrase "Small tits" and Mrs Tug have no possable relation you muppet. I cant expect you to know one end of a Mammary from the other since the only tits you are familiar with belong to Legend Lady Boy

Friday practice was dry, Hammer was fastest with CD close behind. Saturday was wet all day but drying by the afternoon session. Hammer still fastest with CD second. On a damp north circuit the front runners were doing 1.08-1.09
Race 1 was dry and hot, Hammer and CD battled it out elbow to elbow for the entire 25 laps. In the end Hammer took the flag in fairly convincing style.
Race 2 was dry and the championship looked in the bag for Hammer, CD would need to win and Hammer needed to finish below tenth. To the surprise of all Hammer went for broke from the start and the following 25 laps were edge of the seat stuff. Hammer, CD, Zamani, and a new Japanese rider were locked in a massive battle that saw the lead change lap after lap. CD was very aggressive and forced Hammer off line repeatedly at turn 2. For a while it looked like neither would finish and we all held our breath as the came together through turn 3 In the end Hammer took the flag and CD looked gutted. Considering Hammer didn't need the win he was riding like his life depended on it, full credit to him. They were racing for pride and Hammer was willing to put the title on the line just to prove a point. Great race, great weekend Roll on next year

Thumbs up Great race!!

One obvious thing was that Cameron was down on power compared to the other leaders. That was especially in comparison to Hammer and Zamani. Cam was visibly faster into and through the corners though.

In the first race Zamani overtook him a couple of times down the straight. Which caused Cam to loose some pace and touch with Hammer. He really fought hard to get past Zamani and catch up again with Hammer. However, in the final stages of the race he got a rear wheel slide coming out of turn 6 (a long right-hand sweeper) and nearly lost it. He had to sit the bike up and regain control. This gave Hammer some breathing space and from there on in it was his race.

When Cam was given a clean lap he was flying. Despite his power deficit, he had the fastest lap times in both races. Cameron now stands with the lap record for the Sepang North Track at 1:08.326.
