"Had a good solid ride today, although it didn't start to great.

Ben Taylor and I went together to do the 2hour gorrick winter brass monkeys. We arrived at 8am and it was raining steadily, we jumped out the van got our race numbers got back in put the heater on full bore and just sat there with the engine on trying to keep warm. 9:10am soon come round and it was a dash it get ready, we didn't even have time for a warm up and ended up on the line 2nd row back.

I thought I would be ok with no warm up as its a 2 hour race hoping the first lap to be at least a steady eddy one. Well it seemed that Sam Stean and Isaac Pucci had different ideas as they went off the start hard all guns blazing
