    How do you find time for MHing then ?

    Is that bikes or ( Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz ) cars ?

    Though it has to be said Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz is my mode now until the season starts again. And what a season in MotoGP and WSB it will be.

    Max and Nori on the same bike, now is that WW3 or what ?

    zzzzzzzzzz cars

    Cars sorry,the endurance type though,not single seaters.We have managed two trips this year,one down to Italy,to see the Moto guzzi factory and one last month to see all the Nomandy beaches and museums. I cant wait for the new season of Moto GP Rossi on a Ducati,Lorenzo deserved his win but its nice to have a character like Vale up there,WSB well those two in the same team,I hope it doesnt destroy the team.

    Our first trip to Italy, on an FZ750, stayed on Maggiore.

    Main reason, see Foggy at Monza.
    Second, see Guzzi museum.

    Never stopped returning to Italy since. Dragged about 15 FUN vans there this year.

    Last year we camped at Monza for WSB. What an experience, their campsite is on the main straight. We still don't like the circuit from a spectator's POV. Too many trees, can't see much action.

    Jerez, now that's a different matter, from two places you can see well over half the circuit.

    circuits

    I like Monza.Racing in a park ,thats diferent.
    The trouble with my job is I dont see the circuit from a spectators pov,all I manage to see is the garage and the pit lane.A circuit that does stand out to me is Leguna seca (a bit far to go in the MH I know ) to see bikes on track coming over the top is amazing,I was lucky to be there last year during a practice day for bikes (we were setting up our stuff for a race at the wk end)How anybody dares give it death over the corkscrew:Eeek:

    Say no more, Rossi + Stoner. One of THE moments in racing history.

    Sounds like you've got a seriously good job there, long may it continue.

    Do you specialise in any particular marque ?

    Yes,at the moment I work for a team that was lucky enough to get the deal to run the Nissan R35s in GT 1 world championship.But my real love is sportscars ,Le mans type,24hr racing,for a mechy you cant beat it.

    Ps If your bored one night look at JRM group or Sumo power racing thats us.The GT 1 bit.
