We woke up to a rainy morning, but still decided to set off on the bike to Brands hatch Motor Racing Circuit in Kent to watch the British Superbikes racing. We parked next to just a few other bikes! (In fact, there were far less bikes than there used to be 25 or 30 years ago)
First stop was the motorbike BMX! Team Bolddog do fantastic BMX style tricks on motorbikes! Very exciting to watch! But… unfortunately, one of them crashed, which was very unlucky for 2 members of the crowd who happened to be standing in the wrong place! Hope they are OK
Paddock Hill Bend is a great place to watch the bikes! It’s the first bend after the start line.
Which leads into Hailwood Hill after which is the hairpin Druid’s Bend. This is a 125cc race, some of the competitors are only 14 or 15!
Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne won the first BSB race, and here he is on the podium. Sorry about the chain fence!
The start of the British Supersport race. Sadly this was restarted after a nasty crash, and then there was another serious crash in the restarted race. (Secretly we all like to see them crash! Best if they are not hurt badly though!)
All around the track are stalls selling all sorts of motorbike accoutrements, all with very loud logos of course!
And then it started raining!
This is the final bend Clark Curve, right after Clearways.
A great view looking back towards the start of the last BSB race.
