Once again i`d like to thank everyone who rides the hill and came and supported the Racer`s guild timed practice in aid of Jason Brennan. From all of us at RaveRacing its been fantastic to witness riders and friends alike, all coming together to support a fellow downed rider. Whilst visiting Jason on Wednesday he asked me to thank everyone and was really hoping he could of been there for the draw.
After an eventful day with the sorry news of the army lad crashing resulting in another horror injury story (Hope your on the mend soon fella ) the timed practice finally got under way. A super course on a track ive never ridden which turned out to be real good fun and challenging. Marshalling the last session from 2.30 to 3.30 it was great to witness some rad riding from Mitch and some of the Squadron guys using lines the mere mortals don`t even think of or comprehend.
