Auto 66 at a Cold Wet Cadwell Park 1 and 2 April 2018

My first visit of the year to Cadwell Park was a bitter disappointment due to the weather. I decided to go on the Sunday of the two day Auto 66 Club event and driving in torrential rain I tried to convince myself that I could see the weather breaking up in the distance. However conditions were the same at the circuit and signs at the entrance asked spectators not to park on the grass - fair enough but where then? The first hour was spent in the car as the weather was foul and track activities were suspended. It's a credit to the staff and marshals that the full programme of racing resumed after the track had been cleared of standing water and the rain had subsided. However the weather was so bad on day 2 that Mondays event was cancelled.

I spent the first hour or so in the car, listening to the radio and admiring the scenery.

Auto 66 TT Warm up races Cadwell Park 19th March 2017

Cadwell Park was a chilly but dry setting for the Auto 66 Clubs first meeting of the year. Overcast for long periods and struggling for light particularly in the Hall Bends area I had to wind up the ISO setting higher than I like. Overall a good days racing and an opportunity for me to brush the dust off my camera for the coming season.

Auto 66 Cadwell Park 18 May 2014

Already May and this was my first meeting of the year! I was initially confused as the timetable didn't tie in with the program and I only found out later that there was a delay due to some marshals arriving late. There was also some hope that competitors may have been able to make it from the North West 200 but unfortunately they didn't make it due to ferry problems.
There was a huge grid of Superkarts which as ever were highly entertaining and really fast. Unfortunately the numbers in the bike races were much smaller. Despite this there were some excellent performances with both Mark Ess and Craig Neve in dominant form and I was impressed by Matthew Rangeley on his Aprilia RRV450.
