View Full Version : Confused

Hi there

Me and my older brother are interested in getting into mini moto as we tried it at Lydd on a special track day that they did and despite high siding and dislocating my finger we both got hooked instantly but before we both do the expensive part of buying a bike each we would like to know if there would be anywhere that we would be able to take them to race on a fairly regular basis. We live in Orpington which is only about 15 minutes from the lakeside karting circuit. Any help would be much appreciated also if anyone has any suggestions on which bike to get and where to get it from that would be great.

did it hurt when you dislocated your finger :banghead: :sad6: :sly:

Not really I was more suprised than anything because I looked down to see my finger pointing in totally the wrong direction. It hurt when I had to sit in A & E for 5 hours before they put it right though.

One in folkstone. Avoid it at all costs cos tey aren't very good. It would've been quiker to come all the way home and go to the local hospital.

My local's in sidcup calle Queen Mary's . That sounds extremely painful and I'm glad that it wasn't me. Luckily enough when I broke my arm I was in , operated on and out in 2 Days because I snapped both bones just behind my wrist and my hand was at a 45 degree angle to the rst ofmy arm. Inoticed from some of your other posts that you've got a competitive bike for racing. How much did that set you back?

I live in Orpington which ain't too far from Bluewater shopping centre if you know where that is. Thanks for that site. Me and my brother were just looking for something simple that we can have a laugh on. we're not to bothered about winning championships we just want to ride like loonies and have a giggle. We'd probably stick to mainly practice days to start with and then see how we go from there. we're just after something basic to start with. any suggestions?

Excellent stuff cheers . I've just got to convince my brother to part with his cash. I might go to the track day at lakeside on august 1st to get more of an idea of what the whole scene is like before I splash the cash.
