Spoke with the owner of the Pacific GP at Pacific Raceways (Kent, WA), he is willing to set us up a series for both Mini GP and Scooter Racing. He just want to see a few of the bikes to make sure they will not tear his track up. I will be getting a day organized to take a few bikes out and show him what we have. If you are interested in coming out, let me know, it will most likely be a week day or Sat, weather permitting. This is GREAT news people!!!

hhhmmmmm hypothetically speaking......... do any of you guys have a complete Lambretta rolling chassis...... into which I could slot my UK Group 4 engine??? Just in case I were to find myself in your neck of the woods? ;-)

I had the fine opportunity to ride that track today. I was a little worried as it pissed rain all the way up, but it stopped shortly before I got there. The track was still wet, but there were a couple guys in karts ripping around it, so it was drying off/warming up pretty quickly. I hadn't done much with my bike since the end of last season, so I wasn't too sure the first few go's around. The track is brand new as of last year... and it rides like it - in a really nice way. Even with my unaltered setup on a damp-ish track, it got nice and sticky. Good amounts of technical turns with a few places to lay into the rpms and let it wind up. One of the turns has a pretty sweet left bank to it right before a really sharp right one and then into the front straight. Very pleasing. All in all, I'm pretty happy about that one. Tired happy hungry satisfied. Thank you sir, I'll have another.
That was an awesome track! Knee down in the wet! Now that is a sticky track! A couple of nice sections to really get the power on and a big camber turn that I was totally not expecting...very trick. Can't wait for another go. I think a roughly organized practice day is in order.
Yes, another testing day, on 225 Lambretta coming very soon. This is excellent track, it is really surprising just how sticky it was, defintly a great place to start your racing career or learn how to run faster laps. Due to the newness of the specially formulated pavement it is more forgiving when you make steering and or braking mistakes, you can absalutly rail the bike into the corner and brake super hard even in the wet. The track almost makes rain tires unnessesary. I will get a date lined up for practicing and post. Who from Seattle wants to get in there?
