    STTARS Supermoto are racing on Oct 23rd which is the Sunday
    after our first SoCal Motor Bicycle Race at the Grange Track.

    Check out this video of STTARS 2006 Winter Series at the
    Grange Race Track on which we will be racing; winter series

    Note that there is a dirt section with jumps in the course that you can see
    in the pics in the post above.

    I am going to be camping Saturday night and staying to watch the action
    on Sunday.
    This new track is going to be way more challenging than the Willow Springs
    go kart track and a lot more fun.

    Congratulations to magrider for winning the Ultimate Race at Willow
    Springs on June 18th and for not being afraid of having the #1 plate
    on his bike at the upcoming Oct 22nd race! lol

    Of course magrider gets to keep his #8 plate number as well.

    A new tradition has been established that whoever wins the Ultimate
    Race of all the classes gets to claim the #1 plate until the next race.

    magrider also won the 2 Stroke Class in a display of smooth fast riding
    and here is a pic of him with one of his prizes an expansion chamber from
    magriders winning #8 bike was running a SBP expansion chamber.

    The first SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing event is on the calendar
    at Grange Race Track for Saturday Oct 22nd 2011

    Calendar days that say Open Practice Karts Bikes Rentals
    mean that you show up and ride on the track for only $30 for the day.

    This applies to the Friday Oct 21st before the race event and there
    is free camping Friday and Saturday night right there in the pits.

    My pal dand, his family and myself will be at the track in a few weeks
    to check it out and take lots of pics for the upcoming race.
    No set date yet and it may be on a weekend as a few are open.

    Anyone who wants to join us please email me at;

    O-man that track looks sick! you know I'm there. The last one was blast and I'm more then jazzed about seeing ever one again, there must have been close to a hundred MB at Willow Spring stock to extra trick.
    I just can't weight to go wide open throttler with all y'all and try out all the mods I made to my motor against the rest of you tinkerers. I know I'll learn more about how to build MB.

    Hi Dave
    There were 76 entries at my first Willow Springs Race on June 18th.
    Planning on doubling that number and doubling the fun quotient too!

    Going to be some very trick bikes this time that did not make it to the
    last event.

    The new track is much nicer than the go kart track at Willow Springs.
    Are you coming with us to check out Grange Race Track in a few weeks?

    That would be cool- building a new cdi advance and retarding for a real coil, I could tune it better at the track!

    Timm and Roland aka forum name Bigboy is bringing three of the coolest bikes
    to this Oct 22nd race at Grange.

    Just giving you a teaser pic because you are going to have to be there to
    see them in person or wait for the photos after the event. lol

    The middle bike is going to be the hit of the show.........I am pretty sure
    that no one has built a bike like this yet.

    The other two bikes are pretty wild too and all 3 have pedals that work!

    Only 75 days to go to the event....

    The October 22nd race is on for sure and I have many exciting
    developments to announce about the event so stay tuned.

    There are a series of races and events planned for the rest of this year
    and next year too. SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing is alive and moving forward.

    Glad that you signed up along with quite a few others that were at the
    first race at Willow Springs.

    73 days to Oct 22nd race day and I will be signing up new numbers and
    taking payment at 60 days to go.

    I officially have Oct 22 off work and looking forward to race the Grange. The track looks like alot of fun to race on.

    My bike is slowly being put back together and should have it up and running and ready to tune this weekend. I just hate it when work gets in the way :furious:

    It took 1 1/2 days for me to spare part build a back rim the gremlins are out but I'll be ready for the big day.
    The rest of the parts for the cdi I'm building showed up in the mail and I ordered new tires so let do this thing before I modify my self to death!

    I don't know about those white brick tires Dave but here is something
    to look forward to.......
    Jim the Manic Mechanic is sending me his brand new Gen II billet head to
    give away as a prize in the 2 Stroke China kit bike class at the race.


    A fantastic looking radial finned design with a centrally located spark plug and a
    re-designed chamber that runs even cooler
    than the old Creative Engineering design.

    The new billet heads will be available for sale very soon only from
    authorized Manic Mechanic dealers.
    You can check it out on the MM website.

    Looks great on a Jaquar and performs even better. Might be the your
    hot tip for the next Oct 22nd race?


    Thank you Jim for your generosity! and only 71 days to go to the race.

    I'm looking for a18ohm. resister to finish that cdi. I'm working on, racing helps to make MBs better that good for all hobbyist a few more events and we wont be able to recognize these motors!

    That new head will look great on my bike, pass me if you can.....

    Yeah, I'm thinking about having one of Manic Mechanics new radial
    finned heads anodized black and putting it on my 2 stroke race bike.

    Not only do they look so much better than the old ash tray design they
    perform better too and I think they are going to be the same price!

    What do you think? :devilish:
