Racing 690-Wakefield Park race

I was not planning to do this race meeting as it was a bit close to next weekends Winton meeting but the call went out for extra participants early in the week. Sent the entry paperwork on Monday but didn't pay until the Saturday as I was still unsure of my attendance.
The BEARs field consisted of 4 Aprilia RSV4s, 4 Triumph Daytona 675s and me which is the main reason why I was not overly enthusiastic about the meeting.
Spent the weekend battling with a Daytona. He would get 50m on me down the straight and then I would pass him under brakes at the final corner only to have him drag past me again. The final outcome of our fun was Daytona 3-1. Our lap times were almost identical for the first 3 races but after giving him some advice on the top part of the track before the last race, I lost the tow across the top and settled for a late sunday arvo cruise. Was a good chance to get a feel for the front end changes I made during the week which drastically increased the ability to hold a tight line with no apparent lack of stability. I was 2.3 secs slower than my PB on the 748 but that basically equates to the speed on the straights so I need to grow some in the corners.
