Absolutely! Brilliant work in preparing this 50 year old piece of technology (keep in mind, the development started in the 60's...) to be that fast takes a LOT of preparation and some really great riders! Well done, all together!!

cheers

Thanks for your top effort Rob. It made a bloke from Down Under feel like he was standing in that Donington paddock.

Was good to read how the team toughed it out through all the challenges thrown at them over the weekend, as they gave it their best, but a real bugger that their luck went missing for this meeting. It gave the term 'endurance' a whole new meaning!

The team's facebook page is also handy to watch for us blokes half a world away.  https://www.facebook.com/LaverdaEnduranceTeam/
  cheers Mark

Well done for the team effort as well.
