UK season starts next week
Well, it's the first official test at King's Lynn, next Sunday at 1. Last year a few fresh framers turned up - like Boastie's Suzuki 450. Let's hope there are some more this year. My Wood Rotax is nearly back together. Finishing SB5 and all that entails means my eye has been off the ball so I've had to put a couple of late ones in. Carl at CFM has refreshed the engine. Frame's been powder-coated, loads of bits tidied up. Just need to get the wheels in and exhaust on and a few tweaks and hope the bugger starts (no kicker so starting is a bump job, not easy with a cold, hi-comp Rotax on your own).
Come to King's Lynn and have a snoop. Especially if you're thinking of giving it a go. You'll see what a massive range of talent and machinery there is.
Also, we're co-organising a street tracker show for Amman Valley, May 29-30, in conjunction with Short Track UK and Red Max Speed Shop. There will be two days of the cream of European flat track racing on a big, fast 550m oval. Saturday is a round of the MEFO Cup and European Harley series and day two is the UK round (with all the Euro lot staying for an extra day's racing). We want to get as many street trackers along as possible so keep an eye on the blog and dig your tent out.
