    After a 6 week interval (seems longer!) following Cadwell NG Racing & the Formula Prostock Bandits are off to Pembrey in South Wales, close to 400 mile round trip for me!

    So during the break I have put a new clutch in, as this was slipping at the last round, a normal full service that happens every other meeting, also put new rear brake pads in & a new Pirelli Super Corsa SC1 on the front & turned the rear so I get to wear the other side of that (more right corners on most tracks).
    I had fitted heavier fork springs & oil for previous round, this felt much better but loaded sag was still a little soft, so I have now put 20mm spacers in as well, that has loaded sag for front sitting bang on 25mm, ideal for racing.

    As always any Forum members that are going are welcome for a brew & a biscuit at BBR camper in the pits, I will have a couple of tickets available so if you need them PM me & I'll sort you out.

    If I get a race finish each day at this round, I will have my 10 signatures to upgrade from Novice to Clubman racer, and in turn get rid of the orange vest, so fingers crossed for no crashes or mechanical failures.

    Pembrey is another of the tracks I have never even seen so will be watching on board footage from Matt Baker riding my bike last year like below.

    Looks like you’ve got to commit to those fast right handlers there Billy with not much run off. Hope you get the same weather as in the vid, I enjoyed it immensely. Ride well mate, lose that vest.

    Yep, let's hope the vest goes along with my chickenshit entry speed to fast corners! :blush:

    Thanks Alan, Cadwell seems a very long time ago! :)
    Really looking forward to racing again, need to improve drastically on the last couple of rounds, these were Miss Daisy type rides! :blush:

    I must admit, some of the roads around Cadwell are nearly as good as the track!
    I would like to ride Cadwell again though, so far this season, Brands is still my favourite, Cadwell 2nd, then Donington, Snetterton however - if I never see that place again it would suit me just fine!

    Cheers Foxy :cool:, will be heading off tomorrow morning, get set up ready for the test day on Friday, will walk the track tomorrow night as I have never been there before :worried:, hoping for good weather :sun: & to ride better than I have been lately :p.

    It looks like this will be the first round that I won't be seeing any Forum members popping in to say Hi, can't have any members over there in South Wales that are into racing? :confused:

    No worries, looking forward to it. Likely have my grand children with me, so they will love the opportunity to get in the paddock.
