Moto Series 2011: July 15-18 @ Nelson

Moto Series 2011: July 15-18
July 15 Friday Evening Track Day
July 16 Saturday All Day Track Day/Schools
July 17 Sunday Sprint and Endurance Racing
July 18 Monday All Day Track Day/Schools


It's that time again. We are having a track day weekend at Nelson for one and all to enjoy. There will also be a full day Monday event, with limited coaching available. However, it will have a very low rider density because of the weekday nature. If you ever wanted the track nearly to yourself, come to the Monday event! Friday evening practice is available, with racing on Sunday.

Friday Evening Practice $65
Saturday or Monday Track Day $125
Racing: Variable

No pics!! It was fun until a low oil pressure light came on near lunch break! I checked the bike over added 1/2 qt of oil and rode another lap and it came right back on... So I packed it in and came home a little early.


I needed to hit a big track and go fast it helps be behave on the street Wish I could of rode all the sessions I hate driving that far and not take full advantage of it. It was a Monday track day with only 15 riders so it was like having the track to yourself!


I kick myself in the butt for not taking a spare bike... I going to change the oil and send in a sample, maybe the motor is ok and sumthing else is going on... but this old gixxer does have a lot of angry miles and has been down on power for a while and a little noisy!

Dave: Ouch! Hope it isn't 'spensive...but bottom ends in Jap bikes are pretty pricey. Usually cheaper to buy another runner and keep the old one as a parts mule. We gotta spend some time over a beer talking about just what it would take to get me on the track $$$-wise. I don't think it's something I'd do a lot of, but Boy Howdy! It sure sounds like it'd be fun to do uber-illegal speeds--legally! And scare the Bee-Jesus out of myself.
