    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    This trader must be pretty hard to outdo as far as optimism goes. Bike has been on the market for a year now, wonder when the penny will drop he''s dreaming at that price. You'd have thought after a year he might have got round to the little bit of tlc required to get running. ...

I could even feel it slipping when going around corners so I had a conscious decision that today was going to be the day. Complete forgot, nek minute *boom* followed by a hefty fishtail on a...

    Helmet lifespan?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    How long would you anticipate a helmet to last, sans crashes or impact? Do you replace on a time schedule (ie, every 5 years), or kms travelled (I don't know, but, maybe 25 or 50,000kms?). Or use some other form of measurement to determine a new one is needed?

    Where to buy steel

    Thread Starter: Mike.Gayner

    I'm getting more into welding/fabrication as a hobby and am just progressing past the stage of working on offcuts and scraps. But I have no idea where to buy steel (box, tube, sheet) for reasonable prices. I'm in Tauranga. Ta.

  • Bucket Bonanza - Including the Bucket GP

    The Auckland bucket crew are organising a weekend of racing and the New Zealand Bucket GP at Tokoroa Kart track. This will be held on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 of April. This will include full weekends racing for support classes (for club licence holders) as well as the F4 Grand Prix, F5 Grand Prix and the Bucket Sidecar Grand Prix.

    The GP is a national title so to compete in this race you need the full national licence.
    For those without the full licence (or who require Day licences’) we will be running a non GP class so there will be just as much racing!
    In the program we will call the non GP class FT for Formula Tokoroa.

    Saturday

    9.30am Entry and sign on
    11am Riders briefing

    Practice sessions by grade. F4, F5, FT and sidecars, not necessarily in that order. These will be used to make sure all the transponders are working and possibly to set grids.

    Fun races in all the classes, last race for the day will be the sidecar GP or GP length race if we don't get enough entries.

    Sunday

    Practice, possibly qualifying then F5, FT, F4 races in that order

    F5 GP 30 laps
    FT 30 or 40 laps
    F4 40 laps

    Shake hands, go home.

    Entry fees

    $40 for the weekend
    $20 transponder hire if you don't have your own
    $20 day licence if you need one for the non GP classes.

    Camping will be available at the track on Friday and Saturday nights (no extra charge). No pre entry necessary, if you wish to only attend one day this is fine, contact one of our committee members, details on amcc.org.nz/buckets


    Happy to answer any questions here or flick me a PM.
