Shane,

Great to come down and witness the action, hook up with old faces and meet some great people.

Fettling on the KTM now for the next event.

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.

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.
