Birkett 6 hour relay race 24 October 2009

Post by Raz987 » Mon Oct 26, 2009 9:45 pm

Hi all,
Due to the unreliability of the SS1 this season I wasn't selected as a driver for the Birkett this year, but I was still there as support crew. I was stood out the front of the garage for 6 hours waving the cars out when required and passing messages to the drivers on standby. Emma was on the pit wall in non-stop rain doing timing boards for one of the teams.

The BFBS video below tells things better than I can:

Works fine for me??? :?
Should open an Explorer window, then ask you to Open or Save the file. Just click open and it should show you a video.

BFBS?
My neice Julie is a reporter for them. She is out in Germany at the min but she is into her motorsport. Used to cover Brooklands for BBC Southern Counties. She knows her motorcycles too. She cut her teeth watching the likes of Joey and Robert Dunlop at the NW200 and UGP.


SAMD are the initials of an old flame of mine from schooldays who, I was shocked to discover is now dead. Cremated, no kids etc. nothing, not even a marker of some sort.
I just decided to use her initials so there would be something to remember her.
