I will lend my voice to those suggesting a shift in race date. This is the first time in a few years that I haven't gone to PI for the GP, I was a little sad about it, until I got a text from my mates who are in our usual campsite - "sub-arctic hell" is the quote, and this is from a man who has much trackside camping experience!

I have ridden at PI at several track days, these have mostly been two-day affairs, and my ratio of good weather to bad is running at 50/50 - out of 10 riding days I have had, half have been cold, wet and miserable. When it's dry the place is better than disneyland, but when it's not....(however, these guys are still faster here in diabolical conditions than I am in ideal conditions - should I admit to that?).
