Hottrax a week ago, NG this weekend.
Almost certainly the classic club but beyond that I think it is just Bemsee

the hot trax is the mich power cup and ducati not sure what it is but they run on dunlops lot. No 2 t's i know because i worked it, not sure about the other lot we dont do the bemshee or thunder thingy lot now i dont think.

Were you thinking of entering Scooble?

my bike is eligible for the Light Weight Thundersport class with BMCRC, but because it has an RGV swingarm, it cant enter the SS400 class :cry:
I do have a couple of KR1 swingarms that I could put back in, but tyre choice would become a bit more limited as the KR1 swingarms are quite a bit narrower than the RGV one I have.

...might try and see if I can get an S swingarm

Trisha - I doubt Bemsee would turn you away because you have an RGV arm. I know rules are rules but you are going to be challenging the front runners and at the moment clubs would be happy with anybody turning up and racing.

I'll give Bemsee a phone and see what they say. I can't see myself challenging the front runners though......track days are a world apart from proper racing

I would ask as like Mj says grids are dwindling, the formula renault has been binned from the touring car package due to a shortage of entries so im sure they will let you run to avoid making a loss if nothing else.

If its just a case of a swingarm or something i probably have one you could borrow. What tyre did you want to run on what wheel?

thanks John, I'm currently running an Aprilia RS250 rear wheel wearing a Michelin SM supermoto. The tyre is fubar though, so will need replacing.
I'll speak to BEMSEE, and if they say no, I'll let you know.

I spoke to John Wilson the BMCRC technical official and he told me that my bike cant race in the F400 class (unless I change the swingarm) - ARSE! :x
So it does seem like Rules are Rules after all :(
Anyone got an S swingarm they can sell to me?

I am surprised that they are that fussy :?
I would say come and race with us at Phoenix but that is a fair bit further to travel :(
