Superbikes 2016 Ride - Day 6

 

Sunday, 28 February 2016

 

At the circuit again today and it was basically a repeat of yesterday so there really isn't anything to say that's new. You know how it is, same stuff, different day. It was another great day of racing again with close racing and exciting finishes. Weather was again fantastic, cool overcast until after lunch then a bit of sun in the afternoon. One very light shower sprinkle of rain mid-morning which was enough to bring down one rider and stop that race but otherwise a good day.

 

I did take a few more photos but that is about all.

 

Tonight, instead of cooking for ourselves, we'll head downtown for a social evening and dinner before we go our different ways home tomorrow.

 

Only 25 klms to and from the track today.
