Jerez 09 Pictorial

I'll do a wordy report laters.

Back again to my favourite racetrack:

Early morning and the sky is blue:

I think this at Dry Sack, the hairpin at the end of the back straight:

Bit of lean angle in the next 3. If you look closely at the down pipes for the rear cylinder, you can see my cunning repair with 2 Red Bull cans and 4 jubilee clips! (Details to follow in report.)

It's Harry Monk!Harry on one of his 2 Slingshot Racing (08 ) Blades. A superduke is no longer fast enough.One of the very fast right handers at the end of the lap.Moto GP replica / 2 wheeled porn.Climbing out of turn 1, a nice impression of the elevation changes.And going down a bit.CBR chasing:HANDS UP IF YOU LOVE JEREZ!

nice pics pete!!..maybe a camera next time !!??

LOL - if only the bike had gone for more than 5 laps on Weds.

Excellent shots D.P.!! you must know that track like the back of your hand now.How was H going? that blade of his can pick it's feet up can't it?

Harry was going well, he seems to be getting on with the blade.I only managed 5 laps on the last day due to my headers splitting worse, I was really looking forward to doing some decent laps with him.

Nice pics...As a newbie to track days Jerez was a great place to start. The high-viz tops are no fashion statement but I guess they do serve a purpose, altho I did wonder after the guy who came under on the 3rd last before he binned it into the gravel...  Hmm I still need to put the cam-vid up.!! The GP replica did sound awesome and the 09 R1 in our garage wasn't far behind...  A great week...!!

Are you talking about the yellow GSXR, near the end of day 3?

Yes,, it wasn't his bike. I think it was 'Frosty's..bike..??

Wasn't my mate Simon was it Pete.

No it wasn't John.  It was a guy from my garage who had swapped bikes with his mate. He must of been about the quickest guy there, doing 1 min 54 on a GSXR750, and took his friends thou out.He said to me afterwards he was pushing on and came up on a slower rider coming into the right handers at the end of a lap, went under the rider and found that he ran out of track on the exit because he's gone in on a much tighter line. He admitted he should have backed off.It is really only a single line through there if you are on it. (Although Rossi and Gibbers manage to pass and repass there in THAT race.)

A couple of me own shots from the tour too then Pete

great pics eh harry?...That Neil sure does a nice shot...

Great pics there. Pete, how come you never made it to Portimao? I was there, my first time. It's a mental place, couldn't get my head around it. Lapping 31 seconds off the WSB pace, ha ha! Must try harder.

I was at Parc Algar in April fella.It's a bloody great place isn't it! Apart from the "Motorway" section, that is.

What was WSB pace there BTW?

Motorway? You mean the last two corners and the straight?I only did a quick Google for the WSB testing times. I was going 'round in roughly 2:15 which is pretty average, I think Harry said he was doing 2:09s.

Sorry I missed this post Pete.I've got to ask why your exhausts are a bit wonky mate.

Looking good Harry.

2.04 was my best lap ben

John, I crashed in the wet at Parc Algar in April. Only a slow one, about 120MPH.

The last corner was a blast, I was near the top of 4th gear by the end of it, just that straight that was a downer.On the second day I think I was doing semi decent laps, but the time lost down that one straight spoiled them a bit. On the 3rd day I was getting tired quickly and not so consistant - feeling the effects of the day 1 crash I think.I'd love to go back to Parc Algar.

Can you believe that I am from Cadiz (Jerez) and never rode in that track....My first experience ever was in Cadwell. But I know it is an awesome track
