Hi guys,

Just a quick reminder that there is racing at Stretton 2000 this Monday 27th (tomorrow)

I will be there and so will lubymat and loads of others (hopefully) so why not get your new toys out :fest06: and go racing.

I hope to see you all there come rain or snow.

It is an outdoor track, Im not sure of the specific rules, but I would imagine that the bare minimum would be

RAce suit or two peice leathers/Sturdy jacket, knee pads
Boots

You need an acu approved helmet, a set of leathers onepiece or jacket and jeans, sliders are an advantage. Proper gloves and boots either m/cycle or minmoto type

if stretton are running it I don't see why colour should be a problem

I wasn't joking about the tape though

i went from 12 to 121 the same way
