Yep, call in to Paul, he is top lad and racer. Also you might like to know that his wife Maria is working with Combine insurance which all racers are using, so would be a good idea to have a chat with her a out getting a policy out with them while you are there.
All this talk just reminds me more and more that we still have 3 month to go before the begining of the season. So dipressing. On the upside, I got a bit of cash from family for Christmas towards racing expensis, happy days

I'd say major difference. I ran in advanced in mondello last time and was quite happy and picked up lots from faster lads and I wasn't the slowest but the only pre'97 bike in the group. But lads said racing is mental altogether...

I guess we are about to find out Andrei... to hell with it im going to give it a go and if it gets exciting,,, well so much the better i say. By my reasoning it will take a little while to get used to it but we should be well able to give as good as we get.
