How not to do Woodcote

Getting it wrong infront of the camera...

This is me highsiding in Racwe 1 of the 848 Challenge at Silverstone last weekend.

The shot was taken by sharp-shooter Jimmy Olsen. All I can say is I was comfortable with the rear moving around all race and it was doing it quite a bit out of Woodcote, but I got greedy and thought I could reel in Pete Hasler who was fading a bit towards the end. A combination of spent tyre and too much throttle = visit to medical centre.

Nothing broken though. Thanks for the pic, Jimmy!

Was marshaling at Brooklands/Luffield and saw it on the big screen.
Unlucky, Ben...you were going quite well....Wild Child couldn't catch you, anyway. :-)

Nice try! But you’ve got a long way to go to beat Christian Sarron’s massive woodcote high side in... wait a minute... how long ago was that? Aaaaw now I just feel depressed.

Still, you're in good company!
