Wanganui, Boxing Day.
I've done it a few times on my RG50/TS100 bucket. F3 is fine. The fast guys piss off and the rest are good for annoying. Thankfully Clubmans isn't run any more, that was scary. With the modern style buckets we'd be real competitive round that circuit. Buckets are fast in places the bigger bikes aren't and are light and agile enough to be stuffed up the inside even going through the esses, though it pays to close one eye through there.
It'd be pretty cool to get a good field of buckets at Wanganui in F3.
Wanganui is an awesome bucket track. The straights aren't too long and the railway line and esses are good for lightweight bikes as they are both quickish right/left corners. People like Rich and anyone else on a quickish bucket would be in amongst it big time. The big bike riders don't like how hard we ride as well so tend to give buckets a wide berth.
You also require higher grade of official to oversee it. Was talk of kill switch cords, I actually bought on in case but was never enforced. We used to race a few street ccts. Ohakune being most prominent & there was Foxton, a couple near Palmy, Silverstream suburb.

Righto stats for this year:
Round 1: broken wrist
Round 2: broken bike
Round 3: not quite sure what's stuffed, but Mark's had surgery on his thumb
Round 4: NOTHING'S ALLOWED TO BREAK
At least Mark's injury was due to bike and track and not being a dumbass. See, he needs to bring his wife along to keep an eye on him, she wasn't there, so he broke himself.
yup the thumb went ribs banged up but worse i got a kidney stone on monday now thats pain i am out for welly but cobing to watch 6 to 8 weeks off still another good weekend lots of time to set up the 2 stroke
a gentalman always lets the lady go first
