Never been to Cartagena yet.
I hear it's a technical track like Mondello??
Also heard there's a good bar and cafe trackside??

I want to go back to Portimao in September though.....and go balls out from the word go,now that I know the track.

probably changed a lot, was pretty rundown when i was there, podium was bit of poured concrete
there may have been podium up at tower, but there was a really old one outside on the ground
was nothing open when i was there, just the gate!

Cartaghena is a cracking track with good facilities. Bar and restaurant serve food all day. Typical cafe type grub, but a few options. Better than Monteblanco. Track layout is better too in my opinion. More twisties than straights, which is the point of the exercise for me. You lads will love the place.

What gearing would you go for on the CBR 600rr?

Jasus Pat, you know me. Never bothered too much with complicated stuff like gearing. Only ever brought one spare front sprocket to any track. What ever was on the back at the time of departure, a 15 and a 14 front. Never stopped me having fun. Much the same as Mondello and you'll be grand. Worry about hitting the apex on T1(a blind crest at the end of the straight) and the rest falls into place.
