    As buckets isnt classified as real racing - Honda will probably be OK with that , So i might consider disconnecting 3 cylinders and entering as 125 single bang 2 stroke......... :-)

    Like a lot of guys who race "other lesser classes" he can only dream of stepping up to Buckets, one day he might be man enough to qualify

    Down south by the sounds of it.

    Apart from damien Mackie sliding off at Lukey and is Hospital, Dave Ogden doing three engine builds, Bubbles breaking a crank and doing an engine build , Russell low siding and barrell rolling at Siberia, a seize on Friday evening for me, Jay torching a piston in the GSX, Graeme's R's bike doing a clutch, Jay winning the P6 open class on Pete Smith's bike, Todd Sutherland nailing second in class in one of the 2 classes he raced in on Rod Price's TZ350 (500 P5),

    A pretty uneventful, normal sort of trip really!

    We beat the yanks and about 50 odd points behind the poms who were 500 points behind the Aussies.

    Steve Martin and Shawn Giles had some thing like 6 engines between them for the weekend......and used most of them in their hotrod Katanas. Watched Shawn at T12, sliding the back, then tuck the front, save the lot and wheel stand in 4th onto the main straight! New lap record....1.36.9 on a 1982 Kat!
