John Mcguinness and the team were at Castle Combe for 2 days last week. I only work a couple of miles down the road.

Never knew they were there testing. Combe is bumpy so used by a lot of the teams.

Just get no warning they are there

J............................. Combe is bumpy so used by a lot of the teams.

and quite continuous high speed I would have thought, especially if they don't use the chicanes
I love the smell of 2 stroke in the morning
