National Historic Camps Collie WA
« on: October 01, 2019, 01:30 »
What a great w/e of racing and catching up with mates. Finally met Carlo finally who seems to have had a good w/e of racing,
Good turn out, was told there was something like 400 entrants, not sure about that but it was still a full house.
Had a good look at Mike's 500 racer sporting a new Crmo frame, what a lovely bike that is and it sounded fantastic on track.
There was a good turn out from the east coast considering the distance they had to travel
The new extended Collie Motoplex was a hit with the racers but they need to improve spectator facilities. Pretty sure that will happen at some stage.
The ride up was a hoot, the ride back was pretty good too except I wasn't feeling a 100% due to some tasty 60% home made hooch a Bultaco riding competitor shared with me and my mate on Sunday night. The Motodd got alot of attention parked in the camping area and requested several times to start it up. 8)
600 kay round trip for the Motodd which finished off the rear tyre.
Well done to The Historic Competition Motorcycle Club of WA for organizing a fantastic w/e of racing.
Sorry no photos

  thanks To john Innes photography

    there apparently was hoo haa in not having a 500 championship race as people made huge efforts and only arrived to find being dropped ... so then good to see Paul and Mike's 500 on the track after finding a crack in crankcase..days before, after dyno session... [undisclosed figure...?]

Carlo posted something on Nose Pick about an outfit, 3 wheel gadget doing an engine swop and not nipping an oil line and spreading oil and lots of track time lost. That's a long way to go for minimal track time.

That would be a very long way for little track time if coming from the east coast! Makes a mockery of the new rules in Europe for obligatory under-motor oil catching devices. A catcher wouldn't do jack shaez with an oil line spraying it everywhere!

And that is the cause of most oil on the track apart from crash spots in my experience.

Really enjoyed that, loved the way they froze and identified the rider and bike.

Itís always a pleasure to be able to ride the bike hard, just lacked the track time to ride it harder.
