    Dave Evans crashed in T3 on an 88s and went to hospital, puntured lung. The cars spread oiil all over, it was sunny, it rained, it was sunny, it rained, it hailed on the way home.

    JB crashed twice in 200 GP (and finished!!), Aaron took 1st. Frank C. crashed once.

    Marcus took a first.

    More anon.

    2nd in singles. haha. there were only 2 bikes in the race. But that's all it takes. 8 were registered. 2 didn;t show, 2 had head gaskets blown, and two were out because of the rain.

    JD's PVL never made it. JB and I worked on it for a few hours. to no avail. He'll supply details, I am sure.

    It was an interesting weekend. Lots of crashes, oil and an almost brawl on Saturday with a nasty sidecar crash in Turn 3. Lots of cursing. Sunday's sidecar racing in the rain was a good show.
    I crashed in turn 1a in Eurocup chasing Tim Courts for 4th. I Lost the rear end, I can only assume from oil in the car groove.??? Got it going again and finished like 13th or something. I saw Evans down face down in T3 and not moving. Scary shit.
    Open GP went a little better for me getting my first top 3 finish. Bagged the Heavy weight supervintage race because of the slick conditions. The cars bailed out after the rain and dumping copious amounts of oil in the exits of Turn 2 and Turn 6.

    Great weekend, none-the-less.

    Yeah I had a good time. Great to see everyone. Worse part of the whole weekend was I caught a nasty cold. So far not a single sore spot from the two crashes. Nothing beats good race gear.

    And yes Joe it does start getting funny the second time in one race...and to be honest if I'd crashed again and the bike would still go I would have still wanted to finish the race. It pays to put a little thought into crash protection when you put a bike together.

    Aaron went to huge trouble to get Avons mounted on his bike for the rain. One of the few times I've seen an equipment change of that sort actually matter in vintage racing. He put on the right tires...he won, that's the way it's done, very professional move that paid off. I didn't believe some people about the Dunlops and the wet...I was wrong. Both times I went down it was immediately upon passing over the transition...first time in 9, second time in 2. And this is after BFD warned me that 2 was slick while we were on the grid.

    The whole CafeRacer contingent is riding so much better each year, Scott looks like a different guy out there, Aaron has almost reached that wierd place of total confidence and knowledge on his 175. Sure wish this club had more two day events....if this had been a one day event I probably would have never raced because of the "funny noise" mystery, luckily we had time to sort it out.

    Think I'm going to have to set up a pair of "rain wheels" for my 175. Aaron schooled me on tire choice.

    Frank....how's the shoulder feeling? I think it was hurting a lot worse than you let on when I talked to you.

    Hirko is coming back to race. Saturday night was my daughter's senior prom night so I wanted to stay home for that. It didn't make a lot of sense to drive up on Sunday morning for a single race, so I stayed home for the weekend. And her high school graduation is the same weekend as the AHRMA Beaver Run weekend, but I did find out that we've postponed her graduation party until the first weekend in July so I will probably go to the race early Saturday morning. Hope some of the Caferacer.net folks will make the trek out there.

    My plan is to be back on the track for the Laconia weekend. See you guys then.

    Hope everyone that fell this past weekend is feeling ok. Though it sounds like Dave Evans may have gotten the worse of it.
