Please post here if you can take other riders and their bikes in
your truck, car, etc. Maybe you have a trailer with extra room.

Would help if you say where you are leaving from.

What day and time you are leaving. Friday or Saturday?

How many people and bikes you can take.


Also you can post if you need a ride with the
same info and if you can help out with paying
for the gas to get to the race.


Only 27 days to go!

Uh, sorry for the maybe dumb questions, but can you get there on a moto-bike? No freeways! Also, I assume there is water? Seriously. I love to camp, but that looks like a desert.

I'm gonna be in SoCal around then. I'd LOVE to attend. I'll be riding from Topanga Canyon where my sister lives.
 
Calendar for 2013 Racing Events.

The Saturday May 25th race at Grange Motor Circuit has been changed to

Really sorry to everyone that has a hard time changing their schedule.

So the schedule is:

Saturday April 13th 2013 Only 26 days to go!

I am planning a smaller event on Sat May 4th 2013

OK. Sorry. I did not see this post! Anyone? I'd like a ride from Topanga Canyon, just about in the middle, between Northridge and the 101, to the race, on Friday (details would follow in a PM). I'll have camping gear, and of COURSE I'll help with gas. This race sounds like a gas, and I'd love to meet some of you top cats face to face.

I made a post about car pooling at the same time. :)
Maybe you can get a ride with someone?

What kind of moto-bike do you have?
Are you planning on riding on the track?
It would be a long ride from Topanga Canyon to Grange especially on the streets
and you have to go up some grades on the way.

There are nice clean tiled men and woman full bathrooms in the Pro Shop building
with running water.
See PIC below.

The track is about 10 miles from motels and restaurants.

It's high desert and the April temperature is really nice around 80*
I arrive on Friday and camp overnight with a lot of other guys, it's a party!

Jim Granger just opened a really great Pizza restaurant 15 miles away
and he takes orders and delivers pizza, subs, drinks, etc, for lunch.

Also all the spectators and racers get entered into a raffle drawing based
on your wrist band number for a free pizza, garlic bread and drinks which
is enough for 4.

Rob of www.PistonBikes.com is sponsoring the 2 Stroke Amateur class with
one of the Grubee aluminum frames with the built in gas tank.

Your choice of getting the one that has a built in mount or not so you can build a 2 or a 4 stroke.

No real motorcycle tires allowed. Bicycle tires only.

3) 2 Stroke:

Harbor Freight 6.5 hp or similar

No real motorcycle tires allowed. Bicycle tires only.

The first 5 to 7 finishers from the above 5 Classes will race
against each other in The Ultimate Race.

UNLIMITED Gas OR eBike Class
Includes any motorized bicycles that are over 12 hp and don't
fit in any the other classes but meet a few basic common
sense rules like functioning pedals and still resemble bicycles.

Multi speed shiftable motorcycle engines are in this class.
Motorcycle tires are in this class.

Exceptions may be made to the above classes at the race
organizers discretion [That's me] and the list will be updated as needed.

Racer's feedback is welcomed to define these classes more.
 
We are splitting the 2 Stroke 66 cc class into Pro & Amateur.

All the fast guys will be in the 2 Stroke Pro Class and Dave Rust
is putting up $200 in purse money from ArrowMotorizedCycles.com

Also SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing is kicking in $5 per rider racing in the Pro Class
into the purse.
I think we have at least one other company putting up money, the idea is
to pay out to all the racers in the class, not just the first 3 places.

Any companies wanting to promote themselves are welcome to get involved,
please send me an email.



The 2 Stroke 66 cc Amateur Class is for fairly stock bikes and new racers.
As I just posted PistonBikes.com is putting up a very cool prize of a
Grubee aluminum bike frame with the built in gas tank.

Here is the chance for some new blood to be competitive on the track and
have fun without spending a lot on their race bike.

Heck, bring your street commuter and give it a shot! :D
