    You first need to ask yourselves if the public would be interested in seeing such rubbish, let alone paying for the privelidge.

    Well, they've run regularly at Greymouth. Before the licences got too expensive, the bucket races were one of the highlights of the day. Thirty plus buckets running four and five abreast into corners and bouncing off kerbs and each other. Better than all-in wrestling to watch. LOL.
    If you're putting on entertainment which gets the spectators up to the barriers to watch, they're well worth doing.

    Organisers have to decide which of a parade of expensive machinery or a no holds barred race on buckets is going to entertain more....

    with i think only one class having double digit numbers on the track this year it'll be tough to make the meeting even work next year.

    I was there and would go again if the conditions were similar.

    Watching a bunch of skilled riders on the street was entertaining as well as watching the locals

    I agree.
    Watching 3 or 4 sidecars drop shit all over the track until they blow up is way more interesting.

    Seeing such rubbish ??? I think you need a little more respect for the best feeder class in motorcycle racing .

    I think you need to pull you're collective heads out of your arses & respect there a lot more going on in motorcycle racing than buckets. Hence my oft used term "bucket bubble"
    I don't have a problem with motorcycles of any type or class, just the attitudes of those that operate them.

    Putting it bluntly - survival is all about putting numbers on track. Numbers equal entry fees - and it costs as much for a bucket entry as a F1 bike.

    Down here most clubs run a bucket class at meetings - it's economics 101 - entries equal money for the club.

    Tradition doesn't guarantee entries. Just because you've always run a class doesn't guarantee it will stay viable.

    Buckets have run with essentially the same rules(or lack of rules) since mid '80s. Would seem a viable class.
