I came over to Portugal for the world superbikes at Portimao. We went on friday for practice and had a wonder around the paddock. Over the weekend I contacted Christian Iddon and he sorted out access to the garage, etc for us over the weekend.

His bike, the BB3




Christian's BB3

The MV F3 sounded ace down the straight in the supersport race

MV dealer in the trade stand area.






Why the track is always empty at the races baffles me, the viewing is excellent, the weather is normally hot, tickets are cheap, etc

Fantastic pics Lami Exclamation

The bb3 looks nice, love the beefy swingarm. I love the look of the MV F3, and the rear stand has Mr Tamburini's name on it Wink
