Anglesey 6 Hours Endurance with Black Flag Racing

Thursday :

9am and I'm looking out the downstairs window at a row of trucks and caravans ... Black Flag Racing, Team Emmen Racing, BikeShite.com stickers everywhere. Dodski's smiling face and Andy's grin mean only one thing ......... it's Anglesey full on hahahaha, lets get the show on the road.
Pretty uneventful drive down to the circuit, that is if swerving caravan's and broke down trucks are uneventful hahaha, but we arrived ..... in daylight ..... in Anglesey in what can only be described as a bit of a blow hahaha, the wind don't half blow down there mate.
Sarah and John had beat us to it, so had Linds who had marked out a spot for us in the vast tarmaced paddock.
First job was to get the camp rigged up .......... ever tried putting up an awning in gale force loads  ?????? with some careful balancing acts and acrobatics, up it all went with every tie down strap we could find .... wagons in a circle and tents in the middle ...... oh yes ........

                   

Was well good to discover that there were indeed power points ....... and clean toilets and showers ........
Anyway, got the whole thing set up and the barbi lit before darkness fell ........... bit cold but the mood was high ..... got to meet new rider Dan and young Sam ...
Gotta tell yer ....... a warm bed in a caravan is the only way to go hahahahaha bugger that tent malarky ...... anyway, couple of beers, loads of bullshit and its an early night.

Friday :

There's five of us booked onto the Hottrax trackday ....... not a pre-race training day as Dave Mabbut reminded us hahahahaha riteo ....... so that's Linds, Sam Dodski me and Dan out in the errrrrr fresh chilly wind to find out all about Anglesey ......... hahahaha. When you look at the arial pics of the circuit there's nothing there to prepare you for the actual thing ........group one and out we go, into the right hand banking ........ very nice, full 180 with a 30 deg camber ...... up 2 gears and there's a fast right hander (church) that opens up onto a long straight ...... right hand kink then a right up the hill to rocket ...... (where do they get these names lolol??). Left at the top of the hill with a flat 180 right .... short second gear squirt into another long slightly uphill right ......... then down the hill to the cork screw.......... right out of there then a left hander on to the start finish ........... mmmmmmmmmmmmmm this really is a cracking circuit. 25 mins of that and we're back in the paddock full of it ..........
