  3. It was a hot day at the track and the Thai organisation seemed to be following that great military maxxim: Rush to Wait

    Here are some pix from the practice session

    The qualification was scheduled for race day but had been run the day before
    meaning riders like Shane & his team were automatically put at the rear of the grid.

    [​IMG]
    It wasn't until mid-afternoon and after a whole day waiting, that the riders were allowed out for a practice run.
    The actual race was in the early evening.
