    SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing 2012 Schedule.

    First 2012 SoCal Motor Bicycle Race on Sat April 7th back at Grange Motor Circuit.

    Second 2012 race on Sat June 2nd Maybe we will run the
    track in reverse which would be clockwise just to keep everyone on their toes.

    Fourth race on October 20th just like we did last year when the weather is just about perfect out in the desert.

    There will be a practice run at the end of the Sat April 7th race to try reverse running the track.

    yeah, weird that with all the advances in transportation, we still have to drive on dirt roads. seriously, what's next, motorcycles with pedals? that's so 1900's...:)

    Neil, that's awesome that you've got Interlube as a sponsor. it'd be great if motorbicycles could give them the push they need to break out into the mainstream...

    I'm in and buzzed 'bout the new 'Entry Level Class'. Us regular folk or anyone just wanting to give motorbike racing a whirl can now afford to. It'd be great to see friction drives, belt drives, adapted wacker motors, ect... Rather than build a 'uni-task' race bike, just bring your street transportation with minimum mods. Or bring a 2nd bike and join in.

    Sub 50cc 4stroke or <2K electric bike will transport you to some close encounters out on the Grange Topsy Turvy Black Top. Some of the tamer cruisers have run low 20's, yet Nash Moto ran a sizzling 35mph even pace pushing some of the fiesty 2strokers.

    My new challenger is a black/red 24" folder, complete w/ lights, horn, fenders, stock bike tires and kickstand! Should turn 32mph with modest torque, can't wait to see how it fairs against a Honda w/ Nuvinci hub.
    r.ly.

    So what about 2 strokes less than 48cc (weedwacker engines)?
    Can they race?

    Yes, they certainly can race or cruise on the track at Grange! :)

    Any small less than 50 cc weed wacker, friction drive, rack mounts or
    any other configurations like Golden Eagle / GEBE would be in the
    2) <50cc 4 Stroke: Class along with the Robin Subaru 35cc / 25 cc
    and Honda GX 35 cc /25cc motors.

    Under 1500? watt eBikes are going to be included in this class too!

    BigBoy,

    Game On, Race On! I'm cobbling together a tidy e-commute/fun bike (complete w/ fenders & kickstand) that should run 'bout 31-32mph at Grange. Isn't that about your speed?? Heard good ole' MBR plans to ride a small 4stroke entry and I have 2 friends with a realistic chance of entering the "small motors" class. There's gonna be enough entrants in your class to dice it up.

    Jasanabia, bring on the 'weed wackers' there's never enough cheap innovation!

    Now, whad'da 'ya think of a 100' pedal start, no throttle pedal only 'till we cross a line painted 100' out? Not sure how you and others would view this, and I'm by no means committed to this concept. Just seems fun and a bit more bicycle, could be a hoot for spectating.

    Will Nash Moto be running?

    See you and all true competitors on the track,
    #140 Smoke aka SoSauty (no longer #105)
