Not all MB are pedal start but sounds vary interesting
hey gimme a call when you have some time. I got some
stuff to discuss with you.
If 69 ever goes up for grabs I'd take it haha
No Problem, I'll call you tomorrow afternoon.
It's the best track in SoCal and you know it.
Just a reminder to everyone to not pay attention to your GPS or
Google maps. When you get off at Exit 157 / Stoddard Wells do not
make any turns until you get to Central Rd where you turn South to
the Grange track.
Follow the map on the first page and below and you won't get lost
The road turns into a well graded gravel road which looks like this
when you crest a slight rise and see the track below.
It is really beautiful out there and I am camping Friday and Saturday night.
All Track Riders under 18 Years of Age must have a
Parent or Guardian sign their waiver.
There is no limit on racers age but anyone under 16 years
old should contact me before the race day of April 7th.
I really don't see a problem with riders as young as 12 under
the right circumstances.
There will be no extra charge to race a second bike in
Jim Granger of Grange Motor Circuit is the friendliest and
most accommodating race track owner in Southern California
which is why SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing has the track from
sunrise to sunset on Sat April 7th.
That's 12 hours of practice, racing and just cruising around
the most challenging course in SoCal and don't forget the
moon light track ride on Friday night!
We will also be test riding the track in reverse which is
clock wise at the end of the day for anyone that sticks
around after the prize ceremony of some custom trophies.
PS: There will be a hot chick waving the start and finish
flag and if you crash and burn she will patch you up too!
PPS: www.ArrowMotorizedCycles.com is casting some very
cool aluminum plaques for prizes out of big race pistons.
More to be announced about that soon.
Only 71 days to go .........
i ran that track in reverse after the last race. a little confusing after running it all day the other way, but it's pretty cool. running downhill on the straight is pretty cool, but makes for some hard braking going into the corner.
a high geared bike would probably wind out before reaching the end of it...
I started a new social group for Motor Bicycle Racing.
You can sign up here.
The "infamous Safe" is considering coming and racing in
the low power eBike class at Grange.
There is another SoCal Motor Bicycle Race on June 9th
However if you are Serious I would suggest getting to the
first race on April 7th because if there isn't enough interest
the < 1500 / 2000 watt class may be canceled.
He even put some pedals on his bike.
Nice looking bike......I wonder how often that chain jumps off?
I want that bike. Wonder if Safe is interested in selling. Geez, I've been curious 'bout others bikes, but this one has so many concepts. Lo-kv single stage gear down motor, freewheeling chainring, and that fairing with everything tucked behind it.
It'S not as bad as an old Corvair fan belt
My buddy Strotter rides a 50 cc Honda and is coming with his
2 sons that ride 35 cc Robin Subaru's.
They were at the first SoCal race at Willow Springs last June.
agk said that he is coming but not racing any 50 cc 4 strokes
www.affordablegokarts.com is sponsoring the race again and
the good news is that Shane's knee has healed up so he will
be riding his bike in the 11 hp class.
Shane's son will be racing the 99 cc 4 stroke bike and I think he
said it will be a 2 speed transmission.
Would be great to have a 99 cc 4 stroke class if there were enough
Affordable Go Karts is going to concentrate on developing performance
parts for the 99 cc Predator 4 stroke motor.
Brian will be racing the very fast agk 4 stroke monsta bike and will
have some competition from Chris ( www.TomahawkTuning.wordpress.com )
on his very fast 14 hp moped.
Who knows what other bikes will be in the Unlimited Class? liveforphysics?
if he can finish a race without destroying his bike?
Yes, nashmoto emailed me that he is going to be defending his
50 cc 4 stroke title and is looking for some competition!
Mind you he won a Sick Bike Parts 4 stroke shift kit last race so
he was pretty happy about that.
Nashmoto did say that beating all those 2 strokes and coming 5th
was fun too!
We can always see what everyone wants to do on race day. I don't
have any preference and always gas and pedal on the starts.
Safe says that his 1000 watt ebike is going 40 mph so you are going
to have to step it up a bit?
Great slideshow of the SoCal Motor Bicycle Race at Grange

Looks like this is gonna be some stiff competition in all classes especially the unlimited class. I officially have the days off and will be there.
Hopefully I can make it.
Looking forward to the next race and hoping there's more interest in the 49cc class. Either way it's too much fun to miss.
Finally edited some video from the last race: http://blog.nashmoto.com/
