BSB at Cadwell Park this weekend. Not quite sure though, how much I get to see of it between MGP and the German Endurance Cup this weekend.

One of the very few events I'm really looking forward to.

Hopefully, we're gonna get treated with a number of great races.

Maybe it is a Bank Holiday 'long' weekend. I know they have one in August. Often a favourite day for races in the UK :dunno:

*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

Good thought. But according to gov.uk, the next bank holiday is 27 August

Maybe @Andy can tell us why.

I've watched this, short, 11 second clip like 20 times now. It's mesmerizing.

The only thing that would have made that better had he given the cameraman the finger as he passed lol

Haha there's another photo I was thinking of, IoM or North West 200, where the guy is giving the finger too as he passes the camera.

Haha! Love that we’ve shoehorned both Murray and James into the BSB thread.

The racing today was unexpectedly fantastic at Silverstone, usually it's one of the more sedate events, but this time it was good, especially race two where Pocket Rocket was trying to drop back to serve a penalty and nobody would overtake him, this resulted in him backing everybody back into each other and by the time he had served the penalty there was four or five fighting for the win.

Leon battled back to the lead, two of the top three then crashed within sight of the line, and another crashed after the finish, you really couldn't make it up, a bizarre race.
