SAT OCTOBER 27th 2018 Racing at Apex Racing Center
Friday Oct 26th is practice and fun track riding from 8am to 6pm
Thursday 25th is paid to Apex.
Camping at the track as usual is Free.

This last race of the 8th season of SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing is going to be
pretty much the same as our previous races.
We also race GoPeds and GoQuads.

The big news is that we are racing at a New Track in Perris, CA.
APEX RACING CENTER.

18700 Lake Perris Dr, Perris, CA 92571
We are racing Clockwise.

Bikes will be racing 6 lap heats and a 12 lap final on the full track, 0.56 mile laps as measured.

Peds and Quads will be racing 4 lap heats and a 5 lap final on the full track, 0.56 mile laps.
We will be using the dog leg on the left of the long bottom straight with the Start/Finish in the middle.
The track has been tested by several SMBR racers who live close to Apex.
The asphalt is in very good condition.

Please check back for more detailed info.
Thanks!

All racers on Sat Oct 27th to have an easy to read at a distance Front Number Plate with minimum 6" high numbers.

Numbers can be taller than 6"
Like racing motorcycles you can have 3 Number Plates on your bike, Front and both sides.

Color combinations of Numbers & Backgrounds that are hard to read are not allowed and there needs to be
enough spacing to make numbers readable at a distance.
Fancy or distorted numbers are discouraged.
3 digit numbers should be condensed.

SMBR only uses 1 to 999 as race numbers.
We do not use any Letters or 0, 00, 09, 077 etc.

You get to keep your number as long as you are racing with us.
If you do not have a number plate on Oct 27th you can not race. Thanks!

You are the only one on this forum that comes to the races.
Your motor home will be in a gravel parking lot so bring sheets of cardboard, plywood, astro turf, tarps, etc
so you can work on your bikes.
More info and a race event page coming soon.
See you in about 2 months.

When y'all coming to south Florida?
Why would we come to Florida?
There has never been a motorized bicycle race in FL.

There is motorized bicycle racing in MO and IL with quite a few of them coming to our Oct 27th race
every year. A few racers have come from FL. We get racers from Hawaii and all up the West Coast.

SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing has been racing kart tracks for 8 years since 2011.

I'm the only one who goes from this forum? Come on you guys!! Just about anyone can beat me. :) I'm driving about 175 miles each way. I'm staying at an RV park only 20 miles from the track on Thursday and going back to the RV park after the race on Saturday to get in a few days of fishing before coming home Tuesday.

I've been wanting to go but have lacked funds. I'm hoping for the best with this upcoming race. Its 16 miles each way to apex kart track from Yucaipa, so I might show up just to watch if I can't get the funds to participate.

Hey Crazy Dan, do you know Ducedave from your town?
You guys could carpool together?

Also the Friday open practice is a great way to try out track riding.

Right on!
Which RV park are you staying in?
There is Lake Perris camping right by the race track.

I think it would be great if someone started a new motorbicycle race in Florida! There has to be tons of tracks to choose from.

I crashed here going 45 mph on a go kart when I was 7 years old. North Florida Kart Club on 103rd street in Jacksonville, Florida.
Banked turns and a huge back stretch. Would make for an awesome motorized bike track.
