There's now a set of all riders in the 2022 BSB who were at the Snetterton Saturday test day (#89 Fraser Rogers not there).

Lots of naked carbon fibre and some blurry backgrounds - https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjzHDfp

Convincing wins for Glen Irwin, didn't go - too busy with 4 wheel action at Brands Hatch! What a poor showing from the ex WSB guys Sykes and Haslam, is that the inability to switch back to non electronic aids? Paul Bird must be bending some ears after hi s team's performance, Josh Brookes not on the pace either. Rory Skinner was very impressive for a relative new comer.

I see Josh Brookes had his birthday yesterday - 39, didnt realize he was that old. He is going to race in the NW200 for the first time since 2014...

Sorry, a bit late spotting this one - some recent two (and three) wheeled snaps here - https://www.flickr.com/photos/dwh38/albums

As for circuits - https://www.pistonclick.com - has a range of reports and circuit guides for cars and bikes.

No problem and thanks anyway. I had a blast yesterday. I could watch the bikes going through the bomb hole all day and not get bored. How is it possible to lean over that much, drag your knee across parts of the inside kerb with the throttle wide open and drifting to the outside of the track on exit and think 'this is a perfectly normal thing to be doing!'? Marvellous to watch.

I've been really getting into the sidecars this season and they didn't disappoint me. Yeah, small field and they were strung out but those things are spectacular to watch.

Added some Thundersport from Oulton Park yesterday to Flickr ...

It was the same thing at Brands a few weeks back watching at Clearways as they appear under the bridge from the GP loop and sweep through Clearways and Clark curve onto the start/finish straight. The lean angles are incredible and the speed they carry whilst pulling an overtake manoeuvre is something to behold.
Bradley Rae doing the triple at Snetterton was quite an acheivement but I don't think the flyweight Mckenzie is finished yet. Super pictures dwh thanks

Quite a bill for McAms Yamaha after the Oulton weekend, sadly young McKenzie took another heavy fall and O'Halloran looked ready to tear a certain Ducati rider's head off.

I caught up with the Oulton Park round last weekend and boy...that was a traumatic watch in some respects. Some terrible accidents and injuries. Rory Skinner's crash was just so bizarre and so, so dangerous. It was horrible to watch. I'm thankful he 'walked' away. Poor old McKenzie, more bone breakages. O'Halloran's late season has just fallen to pieces it seems. A very strange round.

I hope Donington was calmer.

Sadly not, poor Chrissy Rouse lost his life in a race 3 accident at Goddard on lap 1.

Oh no! I'm shocked. I literally just finished watching the racing from the Donington round. I tend to avoid all news until I've caught up. I had no idea. Terribly cruel. I had a hunch it was bad as no replay of his crash was shown during the coverage but I wasn't expecting this.

There will be photos in due course from today, but the tribute for Chrissy Rouse today at Brands was excellent. And the 69 seconds of silence (his race number) was ended by his voice with the introduction to his Chasin' the Racin' podcast. Most poignant.

Then for the first race, all the BSB riders came round to the grid in pink Chrissy Rouse T-Shirts.

A great collection of pictures from my home circuit, I would have normally been there for this, but it's a bit too far for me at the moment

Thanks - even with the fences the GP circuit is still one of the better ones to shoot at in the UK.

I watched qualifying from the vantage point at Stirlings and it was rammed, I'm afraid the fencing has killed it for me as a mere spectator out on the loop.
