    Biggles08 in the house :-)

    Hey, Marcus is my name and I've been riding on the road for about 2 1/2 - 3 years. I've just decided to go racing only now due mainly to car drivers and car drivers with blue and red lights.

    I have a 07/08 ZX6R and have recently pimped it with a lot of bling I bought from Jamie R in Taupo to compete firstly in clubmans and then moving into F2.

    I competed for my first race at taupo in round 1 of the PMCC summer series and got pole position and won all three races. I have just completed in AMCC Round 2 at Pukekohe and came away with a second and first placing...

    I will be competing at Taupo for the 3 hour endurance meeting on the 29th Dec so come along and have a look see....it will be fun racing up alongside the great Fred Merkel at this event!

    Race number 808...if you see me at the track come say hi!

    Marcus

    Blah

    Hey ya...Chris here.
    I've attended a number of MotoTT trackdays but the Taupo Road Race Spectacular (27th-28th Dec) will be my first ever race (have only ridden a 600cc twice) plus I'll also be entering the B.A.D.D 3 hour endurance race on the Monday (29th Dec) too.
    I'll be racing a 2007 ZX6R and my race number is '123'.
    Any advice gratefully received!

    Hi, My names Clynt & Im from the little hick town of Murchison in the Sth Island...
    Been riding on & off ever since I got an SL 70 as a kid,but Ive only got into roadbikes over the last 5 years......& man I love the suckers!!!
    Decided to start racing this year in Clubmans for the same reasons as many, the & the that frequent our roads in cages....the several track days at Ruapuna & Levels then cemented the idea that the tracks "where its at".
    So Im pretty much racin' my bog standard 04 R6 at the mo., to see howd Id do at this racing game before I go spending money...its kinda hard to get sponsorship in the middle of nowhere.Plus I gotta cut the custard too eh!

    So I started off with the last round of the Sth Isl cup & then went on to do the King of Ruapuna rounds which also included the King of Canturbury series.
    Ive been pleasantly surprised by my race pace & also the consistant drop in my times....down 8 secs on my first race to a 1:46 now...slicks & warmers next year'll help I reckon.
    So all in all its been an awesome season as a newbie...& I learnt that there is something to be said for consistancy as my placings all added up to winning the King of Canturbury series & getting 2nd overall in King of Ruapuna.....
    Major goals are to actually win a race instead of being bridesmaid all the time!
    To get quick enuff to step up into Formula 2 next year'd be nice as well..

    And to grow a large set of nads & have a crack at the Greymouth & Nelson street races in 09

    Hi, my names Marcus Fellerhoff and I work for City Honda here in Palmerston North.
    I bought mysef a Streetstock 150 a month or so back and hope to see a few others at the Vic club winter series this year. For now I'm just gonna get a few track days under my belt and try and find some speed first.
    Hope to see a few members at the HRC track day in Taupo on 22nd March and hopefully learn some lines off Slighty!

    Hey everybody,

    Im Jesse, 20yrs old, no. 44, Apprentice Fabrication Engineer

    I race a 95 Honda RVF400, Done only 2 races, Ruapuna Nat meet 2009 (Clubmans) and the meeting before it, have also done 2 track days - so just getting the hang of it. Have my next meet in 2 weekends 29th March Ruapuna Endurance race, looking forward to it, lots of track time.

    Have ridden bikes since I was 12, starting with a couple of dirt bikes, then road bikes once I was 15, now onto race bikes - Dont like tourists on wrong side of road, speed limits, bad drivers or cops, so racing is great!!

    Feel free to come say hello, I'm a friendly enough guy

    I have attached a couple of pic's of me at Nat meet.

    Hi, Patrick from Auckland here. I have just started off with an '89 GSXR1100 in Post Classics. My first meeting was VMCC Rd 5. Also tried AMCC Rd 1 (but rained off!).
    Thanks to Peter Smith, Phil Duxbury and to those who have read and answered my annoying questions on pretty much everything...........
    Next meeting is at the end of the month at Taupo.
    Hopefully that's the only time it ends up on it's side!

    Hello

    Hi My name is Mike. 28 years old Been riding bikes now for about 20 years. 11 on the road. riding mx before that. Did the Taupo 3 hour at christmas on a YZF750SP that my father and I had rebuilt. Will be entering as many of the winter series Vic events as I can (as long as tyres last!) on a GSXR1000. Number 112. The pictures below are prior to adding numbers. The YZF750SP is in some too. NUmebr 80

    The real mystery is how come that fat bastard Hurley has never lost any weight.

    hey guys im Sam #28
    I used to race my 650 in post classic, but now since it's my only vehicle that's on hold for the mo.
    For the meantime I pretty much only race other people's f4 (bucket) bikes.

    Hi, name is Marcus, I'm from Grey Lynn, Auckland.

    Got the bug in June 2012 after I bought a SV1000S and wrote that around the twisties in the Waitakeres for a couple of months. Some cars scared me, and I scared myself some times. So I figured, lets just rather get a track/race bike. At least there is runoff and an ambulance close by...

    So far I've raced the AMCC Rnd 1 & 2 (Hampton Downs), and the Vic Winter Series Rnd 6 (Taupo). I'm loving every second of it. Can wait for the next race as soon as the last one finished!

    At the moment I'm racing Formula 3 (Superlight) with an Suzuki SV650 #87 I bought from Trevor Delany in Wellington. Thanks Trevor, the bike is very competitive!



    Race number 87...if you see me at the track come say hi!

    Marcus
