Good to see GB.
Classic (pre 63) and vintage (pre 45) racing down here has all but petered out. The bikes are getting thin on the ground and blow ups are expensive DAMHIK.
We used to have an event (not to be called a race) where you did laps and tried to make them consistent. The trouble was I'd do ten laps and the riders on vintage /veteran bikes would only do two or three so naturally their times were more consistent. At least they'd win something.

I've noticed the vintage races here in the USA are getting less interesting (to me). Too many Hondas, Yamahas, unit construction Triumphs, etc. Until I do the math, they just don't seem old enough. Maybe I'm just getting old.......
