With the tracks all being shut since the start of the year due to our 3 months in lockdown, can’t wait to get out on the bike this week. Seems like a lifetime ago! Anyone else out riding?

Yeah everywhere will be rammed, especially in the week after when the kids are off. I’m racing on the 11th so need at least a day to run my bike in and shake of the thick layer of cobwebs on me to try and avoid dying on race day 😄

It’s going to be crazy for a while, rusty overly keen carnage 🤘 I’m sure chippenham is going to be dusty as usual

Yeah overly keen will be the theme, not been to Chippenham for years will have to take a trip down when it all calms down a bit.

It's ok, according to some other threads, apparently they can't understand us anyway.

I am in SoCal, we have been lucky to ride thru it all or at least most. I feel for you guys not being able to get a moto in. Jump a plane and come to SoCal, many places and bikes to ride. Not to rub it in but I raced REM today getting ready for the 2 Stroke race next weekend and my son did laps on the main. Anyone into riding 96-97 CR125's or 250's? Enjoy the rides when you can.

Sounds like you should be riding mostly green lane

|

3/27/2021 4:55 PM

Green Lane?

Am I right in assuming you're having a good laugh in regards to the 96-97 CR bikes?

I haven’t been to Mildenhall or Chippenham since I raced schoolboy so about 2001, are they both hardpack now then? The dirt used to be amazing at mildenhall.

It was back in 1979 at the Acu semi final they went into the deep stuff. Team Green used to go practice there on Tuesday back in the day👀

Chippenham was the Fat Cats of its time.

I have been there in 1986 when they split it 125/250/500 and there were 50 500's out there , from GP guys to clubmen.. .

It was great to ride,back then, last raced there in 2014 , but cant remember what on, think i borrowed a KX450.

I raced Fat Cats in 2016, and hated it, not that i expected to like it, its just ruts and more ruts.

Anyone remember Elsworth sad ?

|

3/28/2021 6:45 AM

Fat cats race track is a lot harder surface than it used to be, and he practice track though is a whooped out rut fest that shows me every time how unfit I am 😄

Ellsworth was awesome, we used to go down that way for a week or 2 and ride Elsworth, wash brook farm, wildtracks and mildenhall. Shame it went away, the guy was so protective over his grass there!

Fatcats race track is almost hard pack now, not far off what the old Armthorpe site was, the practice track is the deeper sand of the 2.

Most people tend to like the race track more, good job they open it up to practice when there's no race meetings on. How do you keep a sand track deep, and not frighten the lesser riders away?
