Wednesday, 12th October: Track Racing

Track Racing will commence this week with the first event for the 2016-17 Season.

The Program for Wednesday is as follows:

5.30pm – 6.00pm: Warm-up and free practice;

6.00pm – 6.20pm: 8-lap graded scratch race;

6.20pm – 7.00pm: 1 Lap Time Trial;

7.00pm – 7.10pm: Italian Pursuit.

From time to time, the track group receives interest from new riders who would like to try track racing. At present, we do not have spare bikes to assist with initial introductions to track.

If any ACT Vets members have a track bike gathering dust in the garage and might be interested in loaning, hiring out or selling their bike, please contact the track convenor, Graeme O’Neill, on 0408 267 734.
