    I'd rather race at Barbs than in a straight line. You won't see overtaking moves from 300cc LAMS bikes on a litrebike at a drag strip
    Rest in Peace

    Which is why I started "In addition to getting access to a decent track..."

    A circuit is the definite priority, but it would be a nice addition to WA motorsport too IMO.

    The guy has turbo 'busa....

    Also pretty poor attitude if that bloke does have anything to do RW. Those blokes typically seem to be ok, but that looks a bit off.
    The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

    That post is more of a reflection on the type of people who run an event called "racewars" FFS are they 10 years old?

    So what, limit spectating to one corner and a straight section of the track? That'll bring in the spectators for sure..

    It's already bad enough with Barbs that you can't get spectators in the basin, if anything any new track needs more spectating spots and easier access to them, not the other way around.

    Meeting on the 25th... god i hope (expect, dammit) there's some definitive/real/measurable outcomes.
    If not, MA honcho for the bullet.

    Chuck Norris is 1/8th Cherokee. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Indian.
