I can't do March 9, sadly, but if any of you fancied making it a full-on, Pentaxians-run-riot-in-Leicestershire weekend, there is a motorcycle race meeting scheduled at Mallory Park, near Hinckley, on March 10. And Mallory is one of the UK's best circuits in terms of photo access from public areas.

Just a thought.

I'm definitely up for that Simon. It's my local track and has great access like you say, so you don't really need anything longer than a 200. I've never been to a bike meet there though, so it will make a change. The breakfasts in the cafe have quite a reputation too

The mallory Park meeting on the 10th. is just a track day NOT a race meeting.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

According to the Mallory website, Vic, there's a track day on the 9th and a race meeting on the 10th. I'll double-check with the circuit.

I've just received a message from one of my contacts at the circuit: March 10 is definitely the first scheduled race meeting. I don't want to hijack the original thread, so will start something fresh later on, with sample photos and details of the Mallory event. There has been a smattering of interest, so anybody who fancies a photographic double-header in Leicestershire will be more than welcome to join us.

Will. You say including lunch? Andrew asked about pigs. You replied only sheep and horses. I hope you're not giving us horse burgers.
What time do you expect us to start arriving?
CHEERS Vic

I would in all honesty love to try one, and not one spoiled by a bit of beef!

I'd be open to the idea - never tried horse.

Oh and 0900 sounds fine Will

I don't mind horse. It's fine. In my travels around the world I've tried lots of strange things. Live fish, Poisened blow fish, and some things that might upset some of you if I mentioned it on here. If Will wants to give us Horse Burgers then so be it.
Are any of you going to the meeting on the Sunday at Cadwell Park?
CHEERS Vic.

Sorry folks I said Cadwell Park when I should have said Mallory Park.
See other thread about Mallory for my abject apology.
