DP F250 at Croft this weekend 18th & 19th August

Post by Luders » Mon Aug 13, 2012 5:26 pm

7 250's on the grid this weekend for Croft as follows:

5 74 Dan Williams Sutton Coldfield Yamaha TZR 250
7 18 David Reynolds Dudley Suzuki RGV 250 V
10 8 Lee Healey Dudley Aprilia RS 250 N.V
11 7 Alex Leek Telford h***a NSR 250
12 73 Ben Ludford Kimcote Kawasaki KR1S 250 N
17 136 Callum Ward Brough Suzuki RGV 250 N
21 69 Cory Smith Messingham Suzuki RGV 250

So if you are relatively local and fancy a day out, come over and say hello, I will be situated in garage 12.

Saturday will probably be the best day to come down, because of the midday start on Sunday, we've had to cut our races down to 4 in total.

All in all, I've had a fairly disappointing weekend at Croft.

Thanks to Bernie and Bob for coming along to show your support and apologies for not being able to make it on track today. This is what happens when a court rules in favour of the family that complained over noise and got noise restrictions applied to the circuit.

Basically, I dropped my bike on lap 8 from 4th of the first race, had to start from the back in the second race and was off the pace.

No idea how, but a lose flywheel stopped me going out in race 3 today and race 4 got cancelled, due to a torrential down pour, just as I was about to go out, all fired up thinking I stood a fair chance of picking up another national signature.

Thanks Mike, I'll be quick at Donington and it's just one of those things when we only had 3 races available all weekend.

Worked out at £27.30 a lap for me.

He did enough to maintain his lead in the championship over Dan.

I think so too, but mainly because we drop our worst two rounds.

A great time out thanks to Ben =D>
It was fantastic seeing Ben in action........ the sound of those lomas pipes down the straight 8)
Ben was a very unlucky but he did get to ride on arguably the bumpiest circuit in the UK :shock:

Cheers Bernie.

Incase anyone was wonder what the damage was like, here's the bike in action in race 2, just working my way through after having to start from the back.

As you can see from the marks on the belly pan, the damage was very slight.
