Rush Shop Ride:
I wanted to get a few kms in without drilling a hole too deep to race my way out of tonight, the Rush Ride filled that need pretty much spot on.

Two up down, solid turns back... well until DK left the throttle open and no one could come round him.

DDCX - Spooky Cross:
This one was a bunch of fun, the racing was all short and fun, a time trial, a scratch race and a handicap... oh and I was dressed as a french maid.

I had a beer before the TT, and managed a time good enough for A-grade, though I felt like I'd gone slow. My feet in their stockings slid around in my shoes and the tight corners didnt let me open the legs up.

I had another beer then raced the I scratch race, coming in 3rd behind Mat Gray and Benny Randall.

Then I had some more beer and rocked up for the handicap. The traffic was hard going, and I jsut couldn't hold on to De Luca, who'd mechanicalled in the scratch and started ahead. It was an odd feeling... being beaten by (another) dude in a french maid's outfit.

The whole thing was a blast, and I swear I'm not just saying that because I got a little bit pissy. Most people were dressed up, most people had a laugh while racing, there were jumps beside the barriers, a smoke tent (though it lacked the lazers i swear they promised me). I think a good way to sum it all up was watching Grover... that's him in the photo above... who was dressed as Super Grover, backed into a few people so that he could go over the 1m wide jump side by side with them.
