Chase bike

Is a 2009 Yamaha R1 - the only bike I can keep him in sight on!

Still the King

I'm sure you could have had him on the inside at 0.26s!! Don't think it would have lasted long though. Foggy's line was (obviously) so much tighter than the other riers on the track - or were they just getting out of his way?

Ahhh, A Nice Slow Blat Around Mallory :-P

Hehehe im only jellous, wish i was down there, on a rented 1996 GSXR 750...

What the camera's used for your onboards? i really want to get 1 or 2 set up for my bike for trackday madness and these are really decent quality units.

Camera

toe_down,

The unit we used is a GoPro Hero with a wide-angle lens. See www.goprocamera.com.

stanleyknife,

Not a chance! He was genuinely in to it, and only his damaged knee and lack of training slowed him down to my pace - he had to pull in once to stretch his leg (just before this footage). He'd been out for a solo demo before the rest of the bikes and me joined him - I tried to follow him when he passed me on my outlap, but he was on it by then and cleared off.  He's still got it - he was laying black lines over the crest at the exit of Gerards! The other bikes were riding it like you'd expect in a parade - but he's not been on track like that in ten years, and he's not the sort of bloke to let people pass him by!

fantastic

How good  is that?

Barely even trying and fast as fook! They must have laughed to see Foggy come around the outside at Gerrards..

Looks like he's on a 996 and could leave the MCN follower for dead on an R1 whenever he fancied.

Shame his racing was cut short.

Genuinely fun then i take it chris?

looked a wee bit of fun i can admit! I have never had a trackday with anyone famous, sucks!

Is there any UK distributors for those cams? I have seen them on loads of trackbikes come to think of it.
