Too late, you missed it. But I was there helping out with The Bike Experience (www.tbex.co.uk) in their Revenge Racing disguise. Anyway, the start was delayed due to a stabbing in the wee hours, and the day ended half an hour early with a fatal crash, but other than that it was a great day. definitely recommend it next year!!

Reports say that a woman side car passenger died when the bike didn't stop and ran into barriers at the end of the strip.
The rider is critical in hospital.

Sad day.

Always wanted to get to this (and stay over for the Ace cafe Brighton run) but never managed it.
Hope they don't put an end to it.

Sadly the lady in question is Niks (BIKERfm Presenter)'s girlfriend. Such a sad loss of life.

Yes, was sorry to hear about this. I've always wanted to get down there too but it nearly always clashes with another event.
