Monza, Monza, Monza. Just sounds like speed and it surely is.
Funny, but I enjoyed it more in retrospect than in the moment.
A lap in the practice session. Not too hot and fired up yet, but the lines are there.
Then race 2. Peter Emery, this is for you mate: Elfin Mk1 at Monza. Two laps seen from your seat.
Was battling with the Taraschi and Jan’s Stanguellini.
Got away from them at the start with better braking and corner speed, but then,………. misfiring and overheating bit me on the arse and the boys came through.
Well done Jan and Danielo.
There were a few nice Alfas there too.
Sorry lads, not a lot in the shape or form of Suddies or Sprints (except the 1600 and 1750 variety) but it was a gorgeous display of Scuderia del Portello. What about this beauty
Went for a wee ride around the circuit on Saturday night with some of the other guys camping there.
Monza circuit is in the middle of a huge, I mean HUGE park inside the city with a palace at one corner and several kms from the track. The old banking is still in place and in fact was resurfaced a few years ago to preserve the history.

Check the little mark at bottom right or track.
Chris didn’t fancy trying to walk down from the top. See the yellow line.
Riding the bike anything above that causes the pedals to scrape the track, and that’s almost on the flat right?
Great track. So iconic and a privilege to have raced there. Be bloody interesting to see what the Suddie would be like there. On to Cardwell.
