Rick and Henk on the F4 sidecar onto the main straight, look at the concertration! These actually go pretty well with two people believe it or not

Last Saturday I finally got my engine back together and running after being sprawled over the benchtop all week. We didn’t get a chance to have practice before the October meeting so were allowed an addition practice and fun day last Sunday. I was frothing to get out there and by 1pm I was stuffed, too much track time, not enough muscle strength/endurance. I managed to drop my PB time down to a 33.35, 0.75 seconds from my last meeting, which I am pretty stoked about!

This Saturday there is the north island series round at Mt Wellington and on Sunday a 40 lap b-grade endurance race followed by a 2 hour endurance race (team of two, 30 minute stints). With the weather looking like it’ll stay dry for the weekend I’m more than keen! It was my birthday on Monday and my parents were nice enough to buy me some italian Gaerne GRW boots! No more fear of broken ankles! Whilst we were searching around for boots I bought myself some Revit! racing gloves too so I’m all geared up and ready for some more track time. Last on the list is another tune to make sure the engine is running at optimum, some physical training to get my strength up and someone to point out how to improve.

Keep an eye out for some more photographs from the coming weekend, fingers crossed on a good result
