Anyone else going to be there, enjoying some great bikes, chips with too much mayo, fine Belgian beers and the worlds best racing circuit.

Looking forward to it. Smile

Thursday night ferry to Rotterdam - be at Spa around lunchtime Friday.
Watch out for around 20 smokey UK reg'd H2 Kawasakis being expertly marshalled by a lone Bimota.
I'm hotelling it in Spa, the commoners are sleeping in a field. Saving all their money for fuel and 2T oil. Very Happy

There are 3 groups of UK-based H2's converging on Spa, 20+ Frenchies, the Netherlands group and the Baltic countries mob. Its the 40th anniversary of the original H2 and the Z1 this year.
I'm staying in the Hotel Source de la Geronstade in Spa - will pm you my mobile and meet up Friday night for a drink or 2?
Saturday night is the 4hr endurance race - starts at 20:30 - so I'll be at the circuit most of the night. Very Happy

great weekend, highly recomended.
Finally met up with Garry and Paul and will do again I hope : ))
pics . . .






nice YB1








nice YB3




really nice YB4R








Peter Rubatto was in the SBK revival runs

even a YB4 for sale


call this number, it's actually not too far away from me !


but frame had a few scratches and it has been welded below the swingarm mount


nice SB1


3 KB1 s tried to qualify for the 4 hour race, but I don't remember seeing a single Bimota on the track at any time ?? must have been having a nap- but it looks like the KB1 s didn't qualify . .






this one was there just for fun


this bloke was enjoying himself too. I didn't get a single pic of you on the track Garry Embarassed you must be too fast- but you should be on the video- when I get that sorted out . .


brilliant place, brilliant event, we could all meet up there next year- have a club stand and support whoevers going to buy the YB4 !


and it didn't even rain on Saturday or Sunday.

Great weekend with great weather too!

Good to meet up with you both.

Roll on the next one!

Garry saw you riding up the road with the triples guys, after the Tour de France had gone through.

excellent weekend with great bikes, great weather and great company too! Pleased to have met up with both Paul and Ian - both great guys. Icing on the cake was the 4 laps of the circuit - top fun. Very Happy
I've left all the "official" forum photography to Ian - I'll add a couple of meaningless pics later. Hope your video is OK Ian - very rare for a Mantra to be leading the pack for an an entire lap!
Roll on the August Bim-Fest in Germany!!!
