Pics from Saturday. Disappointed there was not more strokers there but hopefully Sunday will be busier. Full day of racing anyway so good day out and good to catch up with Rod and Grant (lightweight 400 champian) who's Lc2's I restored and are in the pics.
And the first casualty of the day, one of the local racers bikes who found out the limits of Pirelli Stradas when he low sided
Not too surprised when you saw the way he was throwing it into the first bend after the straight.
was a good day and good to meet you Steve and Alex , managed to get out with elsie on the parade lap , there was a lot more lcs dotted around the site , it would have been good to house them all in the one marquee tho, 190 mile round trip for me but well worth it , hopefully Knockhill will hold it annually

Good to meet you all too.
Sunshine at Knockhill - I have the beetroot face to prove it.
Only a few TZ's as in the pics, never seen any others. The white and red one was out every session and was mighty quick, was even worrying the 750 through the corners but the 750 p1ssed it on the straights. Think he was taking it easy on the 750 but wouldn't you if you had to foot the repair bill.
That's all the pics I have and think I got most of the bikes that were there. As Alex said they maybe should open it up to any stroker and for god's sake publicity would help. A nice add in Practical Sportsbikes and Classic Bike would have helped as we know there are loads more out there.
The marquee was way down out the way of the paddock and the main area so if you had turned up not knowing they were there you would have missed them. At least there was security on it all day so you knew the bikes would be safe from scrotes.
Think that is the most my RD has been used lol. 120 miles in 2 days, only done 600 in 2 years.
Even managed to squeeze into the official line up pic before the parade laps
I managed through on the Saturday, cough, cough, in the car as the LC isn't quite ready. Finally found the marquee and had a good look at all the bikes -mmmmm, some nice examples (especially the RZ385). Watched the afternoon session and the guy on the black LC keeping MacKenzie honest with his lap times (well done mate). This would have been a great display having all the LCs (and possibly other 2-strokes) on display at this coming weekends British Superbike race weekend at Knockhill - image all the ex-stroker owners that might have rekindled a 2-stroke romance. Anyway well done to all that managed to display / race round the track, you made me even more determined to finally finish my bike off and get another LC back on the road.
Lovely 3XV1 V-twin TZR. Any one know who it belongs to / where it came from? I thought I was the only one in Central Scotland with a 3XV. It would be good to meet up for a blether as we say up here. Or was it a visitor from south o' the border? I think I was working away when this was on so missed it, or I'd 'ave been there too as I'm only about half an hour from Knockhill.
