SUPERBIKES when Britain ruled the world

Did anybody watch the Superbike program on itv4 wednesday night?

Brands Hatch WSB, halycon days, fantastic. WSB should make a return to Brands, the relevant organising bodies should get their heads together to make it happen, a major event has slipped through the net due to organising bodies failing to agree and come up with a plan of action......

No...

I missed it, but hopefully it will be on again.

The Brands event always looked good, although I never went in the flesh!

Got some good Brits in WSK now though, and its still great racing.

How you doing anyway, still got the SP2? Have a 1050 Sprint myself now.

See you at Hawes sometime!

One or two

trips planned, Alwnwick via Penrith and the 686 to Rothbury, that should be good.(B&B Booked, so rain or shine!)  Was planning a Wales trip, down Pembrokeshire way, but its never stopped pissing down!

I used to do a bit of twin shock trials few years back, Had a 250 Bultaco, was a real animal! Wouldn't mind doing it again, but we are Grandparents now, so not a lot of time!

Damn... missed it

Luckily it's on ITV4 again on Saturday evening (7th July) at 8pm.  Or available on ITV Player...

Brands WSBK was the best event ever, I went every year from 2000 to 2008.  120,000+ fans all cheering on the Brits.  It's a shame that Brands don't have the WSBK at the moment, given the number of British riders right up the front.

Brands return

I`ve been banging on about that fantastic event since it was withdrawn in09 ! I`ve begged Jonathon Palmer by email many times asked MCN to get a petition up n running but no avail . I never missed a race from96 -08 even went on me own in 00 for the october one ( yes there was one ) Silverstone is crap , Donnie`s no better ( ok circuit not bad but rest of it ?mmm ) theres a dvd  been out for a few years now called Suxie perry`s Brands weekend  have a look at that brings tears to my eyes remembering all the fantastic times with the racing , poboys  and that mega camp site .

got the suzy perry dvd, it really gives you a taste of what the event was like. I was at all the brands WSB (even though i live 250 mile from it), you're right about donny and silverstone, not a patch on Brands. I fear it will never return though....
