    If anybody else in Canterbury is interested in giving the dirt oval a crack, it is still a happening thing. More numbers are required to get it back to where we had it running at a level where the flat trackers were being invited to play on a few of the closer speedway tracks.

    I have three XL 250 FT bikes that have been sitting in a shed for a while now. They need work and out of the three there would be two ready to race with some time spent on them. I raced one of them as well as an XV750 and I know which one I had the most fun on, on the short tracks that we have to play on.

    If someone wanted them and were prepared to commit some time and get out there, I would give them to those who may be interested. The proviso is that they must be raced at whatever events my mates get sorted for the future.

    I have just pulled them out of a shed and will post a pic of them later when I get a bit of work done around here.

    This is a perfect opportunity for some young chaps to 'just do it', and have a whale of a time for very little effort and expenditure.

    Good on you Rob.








    There is a spare engine for parts, the red one was a runner but prob a little seized through inaction, the gold one was making a noisy knock the last race it did and the other is a good runner. My son was bored a while back and made it run, it has a sticky oil ring through inaction but a good runner.

    talked to dennis during the week and found out that he needs ten riders to fill the requirements at ellesmere and oxford speedways, he currently has seven..... so he needs more people..... kbers have been offered some FREE bikes.. how about it team a cheap sport to fill in the dull moments!

    Hi! myself and a fellow rider are interested in flat tracking, whats the details??
    We have both been riding dirt for years, some road riding. Flat track racing sounds like a blast!
    How often are meets and races?
    What is the cost per meet/race?
    Can we use our own bikes? (although I like the idea of one of the XL250s)
    Based in Christchurch, riding most weekends.

    Cheers!

    ...will PM you a phone number of someone who is one of the riders, organisers...they can answer all your questions...to answer the question of how many and how often all depends on getting enough riders doing it consistently enough to get back onto a speedway tracks timetable of events...if you are into it, your input is necessary to get it rockin again...

    ...it's not one bump... it's a series of ongoing bumps and lack of grip and smart cunts who have flasher pieces of shit than you and too much fun to not want everyone to share...If all goes well with Velo prep before Manfield on 27th, I may put at least ten minutes into one of the XL's...I was never going to do it again but I may need to...
