Spent the weekend at the Class1 event in Plymouth (with Matt & Vix)
Didn't take an awful lot of pics, but here's a few.

'Victory team' won the event and sadly Steve Curtis was robbed of the chance of being first to the flag on home ground, when mechanical gremlins struck repeatedly on 'Spirit of Norway', he raced back to the pit area on two occasions, apparently on one motor, screaming back on to the course seconds later and re-entering the race, but on the third time he retired..very sad!

Britains Chris Parsonage in 'Negotiator' retired with a surface drive that had gone AWOL (oh for £0.10 of wirelocking!) see pic.

Thanks very much to Rory Power & Honda for the pit passes ;)
