I'm keen to get back in the saddle on a cafe racer style...

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
