How Do Geoff,
 
I Recall a comment made in whichever magazine it was in; in one of the race reports? "the fairing has to be that long to get all the a's on it" LOL the bike has three a's and the fairing has fwor a's. I think the extra a on the fairing was for the extra Raaa factor.
 
Take care,
Barry ;-)

Barry is absolutely right.  Raaa is unfaired, and becomes Raaaa with the silver tail fairing.  The fairing will be attending Lancaster and Presto, as will Dave himself although they will not be racing together.

So, the fairing will be racing on its own, Howard?? Extra Raaa factor??? This is no physics I'm familiar with. I'm getting more and more confused.....Wacko

Clearly this is no ordinary fairing, perhaps if I can harness this self racing abiliity then I'll be finishing in a slightly less bedraggled manner!

Thanks for the update Yowie, investigations shall be made!
