  • Vankeymeulen injury woes

    29 May 2007 by Clive McNeil

    Speculation that Didier Vankeymeulen will be out of the Superstock 1000 and World Endurance championships for 3 months after his Silverstone crash may be slightly pessimistic.

The idea is everyone who paid entrance had a grandstand seat. However, hundreds of fans either hadn't been there before or weren't aware that not all grandstands were covered. My friend and I knew we wanted to be at the dodgy chicane in...

  • Rain at Silverstone

    28 May 2007 by Paul Bennett

    I was unfortunate enough to attend WSB at Silverstone and witness half a day's racing with no mention of a refund. The riders who I admired so much said conditions were too dangerous to race so I expect relaxed in the corporate entertainment of the hospitality areas provided by various sponsors whilst I rode in the same pi**ing rain back to north Devon. Like hundreds of other bikers I had handed...
