Sorry I missed you this morning!
Holiday fever got me and I couldn't drag myself out of the caravan park until late morning Smiling

I did manage to get a couple of laps in though before heading norht Smiling

Love the track - could spend another whole day there! Was oh so tempted to stay another day and do the 4 hour race tomorrow!

has PT Macquarie copped the rain like Newcastle & Sydney?

I haven't kept up to date with the rain stats for Sydney but Fri and Sat were mostly sunny in Port Macquarie but there was a huge downpour Thursday night and more rain again friday night.
Surprisingly the track was still ridable - "amber" condition.

Also very interesting coming from riding the Sydney sandy trails to ride through a puddle here and not hear the grinding destruction of your drivetrain we normally get in Sydney from the sandy trails. The tracks are very slippery in the wet though and I've had a number of wash-outs on the front resulting in even more bruises and scratches...
The Maxxis Ignitor tyre on the front is not quite up to the job Smiling
