I was there with the wife on the National Express trip from Darlington,
excellent value but the hotel was at East Midland Airport 1 hour 10 mins
away. My wife got me it as a birthday present ( don't know what I've done
wrong this year, last year was two weeks in Spain & F1 weekend tickets
at Barcelona).
I happened to mention that if TT tickets were to appear I would only need
spending money & accommodation, here's hoping for next year.

I've been a long-term critic of Mr. Crashmore but these last two races have altered my opinion.  The technical win based on tyre choice was probably a team decision but he executed it perfectly in difficult conditions and his Silverstone performance (at least from the TV shots) was a revelation - brilliant to see him having the confidence to push back against Marquez and dice with Rossi.  Hope he can continue to do so.

He did well,but unfortunately I think it could be his last. Conditions and circumstances went for him. Hope I,m proved wrong though.  :006:

Brilliant ride, put him on the full factory Honda and he would be a podium challenger every week.

It was a superb race, but sadly spoiled by the juvenile and petulant behaviour of one of the other riders ....what a knob  :192:
