    Sunday, May 22 - Going to the racetrack ... and maybe beyond after

    Most of the BSCB community isn't aware of the conversation going on in the racer section ... the "Going to the racetrack" thread about drumming up some interest in the racing at Mission.
    Now, if you haven't been there before for the races, you've been missing out. It'll make you want to get out there on the track yourself. And you know what - you can! You can do a Taste Of Racing session at lunchtime, where you get to take your streetbike out there and ride the track.
    Believe me, after that, you'll be buying your own track bike.
    And, if that wasn't enough, I'll even take a sweet-ass picture of you for FREE as you drag your knee through corner 9. (Some pics below).

    So you get to watch racing, do a track session, AND get your picture taken? What a deal!
    And, due to the generosity of the WMRC, admission is only $5 - but only IF you're on the group ride. (TOR is extra, though. Not sure how much ... )

    I'll be leaving downtown around 8:30 on Sunday, aiming to be at the track around 10, since I will budget in time for some stops to pick up any interested riders along the way.

    Here's some of the pics I took last year. CLICKY .. and below. And one of me on my bad-ass Speed Triple from WCSS school earlier this year.

    Nice Speed Triple. (I might be biased though.)

    They look so much better when the stock mufflers are dumped in favour of a shorty can like yours has.
    Work sucks -- let's go riding!

    I need more room in the shop!
    It is a two day event, next race weekend is also part of the Western Championship, so there will be riders from Alberta, and maybe even beyond, and very possibly from south of the border, if your going to the track for the first time, this is the one to go see! Some serious racing going on those two days.
    Unfortunatley, I won't be able to make it out on the track that weekend

    And they most likely will have the stunters back again for another show during lunch!
    That was a real treat to watch!

    Just a reminder ... 830 timmys, probably 9 at Holeshot for anyone else wanting to tag along .... and this is the only way to get in for half price! A mere $5! AND I take your pic on the track!

    Sooooo..... What if a DL650 and DR650 wanted to go play? What are the restrictions and requirements? I can't let Chia be the only one with a pic of a V-Strom on the track.
    I have gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, keep me here.

    If he can get on the track with that plywood camera mount contraption he had last year, there can't be many restrictions ... lol
    Seriously though, I don't think there's any restrictions for the TOR. As long as your bike is in good shape, they let you on ...

    yep. In the past, it's been $30. Register at the tech booth, meet back there 20 mins before the lunch break for a brief chat and to be split into groups, then it's out on to the track during the lunch break.
