    Thanks to the Chief, I won't be wearing that mangled hat anymore. A few people commented that it technically wasn't a working hat! The next door neighbour's horse decided it looked yummy and pulled it off my head and started eating it. Bloody thing was pretty adamant that it was food and wouldn't give it back. The Chief has given me some Tamworth hats, so I have promised him I will let next door's horse finish its meal.

    So, it is $10 for the day licence, or $210 for entry and licence? Not that is make this one, but if it's $210, I'll stop almost thinking about it...

    Yes Brandon. I race a ZXR250A, @Murdo has a MC19 CBR250, The chief (@GreyImport) has an FZR250 and a ZXR250C (hasn't raced this yet), @Linkin ran some 8.8sec runs on his ZXR250C before selling it and Murdo's son ran some high 8 second ET's on a CR250, Pete has run 9.9 on his street CBR250 (MC19) and I ran a Nostalgia bike (that Murdo hand built) based on a DT250 engine shoved into a modified TS175 frame. I also ran one of Murdo's bikes (ZZR250) at one meeting. We call ourselves Team 2fiftycc and we make sure we have fun. If it wasn't for the team 2fiftycc riders, there would not have been a motorcycle class at a number of the TDRA meetings.

    Murdo's is the purple CBR, Pete's is the other CBR. Murdo and Pete have been building a proper race bike for Pete with plenty of go fast bits on it.

    Edit: I forgot to mention @risky who raced his FZR250 once and blew it to bits. We still laugh about how at the end of his run there was more oil on his leathers than in the engine! He keeps saying he'll race again, but we're all still waiting.

    Nice find. plenty of good shots of Murdo and a couple of me on his green ZZR. Didn't you run a 10.20 without a working 2nd gear?

    Something like that .... 2nd gear is ok , just has a noisy third .... when I have the workshop up and running Ill do some engine rebuilds

    Next time I run it Ill have it geared differently and with the COPs and Ive done some exhaust/headers remodelling too and some other bits and bobs

    Sadly Ive just way too much on my plate currently to even consider racing ATM

    Well...I haven't spoken to Murdo yet, but if I'm the only 2fiftycc, then I will probably pass. As you know, it's a 1,200km drive from my place to there and the same back again, so as much as I want to race, I can't justify it unless there's a few of us racing in Team 2fiftycc. Murdo did say Pete's bike would be ready for this weekend, but I haven't confirmed it with him yet. Be nice to have a few of us racing. I'll wait until I speak to Murdo. I have until Tuesday to decide (entries close).
