    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do. I dont think its going to be easy, most of it has been a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back so far. Im...

    1972/3 Honda SL125 x 2 rebuild

    Thread Starter: Laava

    So I have had this old SL125 in the shed for years and it used to run ok but I couldn't get the points cover screws out so when it needed a tune up, it just got left to sit. I dont name my bikes or give them a male or female status, but this bike was called Peanut. I can't remember why... Anyhow,...

    Over confident as a new rider

    Thread Starter: Al Bundy 4eva!

    I'm into my 7th month of riding, I ride every day, I noticed this week I'm becoming more confident or should I say riskier. Told myself twice to tone it down, for some dumb reason my actions don't listen to my thoughts. It's like having an angel and a devil on each shoulder, and the devil's...

  • Methven Mountain Thunder - Easter 2013

    Attached is the Methven Street Race entry form and a welcome message from the Methven Lions who host this event with CAMS. Entry is on a first in basis if classes are over subscribed so get your entries in early. Entries close on Friday 15 March 2013.

    The format is the same as last year’s event with the exception of the Formula CAMS 150/250 class replacing the Motards.

    Like last year there will be a prize giving and meal following the conclusion of racing. This will be in Samuels Bar at the Blue Pub. Bar will be open from 5pm and meal from 6pm. The entry fee includes one meal ticket and further meal tickets will be available for purchase at sign-on ($15/head).

    CAMS are not taking t-shirt orders this year, t-shirts can be purchased direct from the supplier or at the track on the day. See the attached Lions message for ordering details.

    N.B. Remember you need a 'Championship' licence to compete at a street race.

    We look forward to seeing you all there.



    Don't forget there's a CAMS club race day on 23 March at Ruapuna B track, a good opportunity for a shake down before Methven the following week.

    Cheers.

      I know ya didnt need this with acc there in all, Ill pass on some info to ya cos it sure wasnt a good look and imo needs attention.
      Great to here the woman injured waset so bad, info comming in the pits was some one was flat on the track.

      Some riders never managed to finish a race due to red flags, good to see tho that the red worked well track cleared and next class on dummy, good desision not to re run a red flaged race imo.

      I think the pre72 muppets were the worst for that, pretty well run event, got through it all fairly quick due to not restarting red flagged races if it wasn't for the last incident they might have even fitted another round in
