    Or are you going to reply with "You can see the whole track if you're in a helicopter" shit........
    No, your statement was "spectators can't see the loop extension at Timaru" that was incorrect

    Still cant see the end.

    Maybe they could invent some sort of small roundish track, where you only turn 1 way so the spectators don't even have to use the other side of their face. I reckon they could put heaps of seats around the outside too, so you could just sit on your arse and see the whole track.

    Mt Wellington you can see the whole track.

    I've looked through my calendars and can't see that written down anywhere unfortunately

    Was it the VMCC round in the rain back in 2011 or 2012?
    I nearly beat Fast Eddie K on his YZF1000 with my NF5 RS250.

    That's probably pretty close to the last time VMCC raced there.
    Would be '09 when I crashed the gixxer out the back, and that was the final round of that series.

    Found some trackday video from 18/11/2013, also 11/1/2015, short track in morning and long in the afternoon, alot of race bikes.

    I've got some more hard drives to look through but shoulder issues started to limit the riding soon after 2015.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure I had the NF5 in 2009, or at least not yet in racing condition.
    So, I would have to think it was post 2009.
    But my memory seems to be as fuzzy as yours mate.

    Yeah, I think Drew is pretty close, Vic club Winter 2008 was the last outing for me.
