VORC - Ride Report. Rawson 20th and 21st April.

Awesome day, track was in primo condition, was wettish and greasy on the sighting lap and we thought that it might be a hard slog. We were wrong, the 160 bikes that went on the sighting lap roosted that top layer off leaving a moist, grippy track. A bit slippy of the main racing line but still not to bad. Almost a perfect balance.

The track had heaps of naturally formed burms that got larger and better as the day went on. If it wasn't a berm their was nicely formed ruts.

It was a beautiful flowing track and Dandenong did an awesome job on the track and the running of the event in general.

I couldn't get my 300 running properly after spending about 20 hours this week ripping it down and putting it back up about 10 times. I took the 125 instead with my factory race numbers purchased from office works Saturday night. was actually pretty fun on that track but it struggled in places. All in all I loved the day.

It was a day out for DBW taking home 4 trophies in total.

Congratulations to Darren with a 2nd place, Pesky with a 3rd and a special congratulations to Owen and Amber who both took out first place in their class. Great effort.

Well done to everyonel else that competed.



1st place. Yeeewww!

Was a top day out for sure. Conditions could not have been better, and the weather was perfect.

I had a good days riding, just plagued with too much crashing. I was 6th in class (over 40's) after the first lap cause I crashed. Worked my way up to 3rd in class, with Freerider in 2nd. The pressure of defending 3rd and fatigue got to me and my last two laps were a disaster with 3 crashes...seeing me throw away my 3rd place...gutting as all I needed to do was stay upright and a trophy was mine!

Was good to see such a big dbw crew there, and such a good track...the way sprints are ment to be

Whoops I forgot someone in the placings sorry Gus.

Edit: I didn't read the whole post. Back to 4 place getters.

1st - 3rd only counts as far as placings, 4th is just the 1st place of the losers I just need to learn to stay upright and away from trees

Was good to see another new dbw to the vorc's and great effort to flog a 125 around that track

Reckon the juniors and women need the award as that track would have been like teflon coated ice on Sat in the rain.

I reckon. The only losers are those too afraid to give it a try. The amount if effort and investment required just to make the start line is achievement enough!


Great reports. Hard luck Gus

Well done groovers.

Wish I was there. :

I was just correcting the quote . I'm happy if I think I've done the best I can .

I'm planning to have a crack in the over 40's class next year.

Why wait?
