Cornish Bonanza 2013

Post by Grouty » Tue Jun 25, 2013 12:26 pm

Two days of racing in sunny Cornwall. The track is located at Callestick (just off the A30). Through Healys Cider Farm <219 and onto the track.
This was the first race on saturday. The classics (all 5 of us) got put in with the twinshocks. The CCM and me are no match for a Maico 490 ! (or anything else for that matter).
See if you can spot the spiders !!!!

This should work if you open it up in another window.

Very entertaining! Those posts alongside frighten me- are they quite flimsy?

Jack, I don't see much racing, but it seems that wrapping a bit of hazard tape around a tree constitutes sufficient protection for the tree as to alow it to be on the race track. I don't think the riders are normal. Hence, those post are probably 5ft x 6in half rounds driven into the soil and the amount of "give" is inversly proportional to the strength of the gorilla who hammered it in. On closer inspection, some seem to be re-bar, 1/2 in metal rods, thats a relief, thought they might have opted for something dangerous!!
There is no evidence to support the notion that life is serious.

Thanks for sorting the video Gerry. What did I do wrong ??
Good old AJ pointed it in the right direction :smile:

Nearly all the tracks I have raced on have had 3"or 4" fence posts and rope. Some now have a nasty ball ended plastic stake about 2ft high. Perfect for the shins, and will strip a wheel of it's spokes before you can Health and Safety. They are designed that when they break, they do not produce a sharp end ! ..... really !
I like big posts and trees. They make sure you stay on the track.

Correct ..... not much racing as I am too slow :roll:

typical gentleman's excuse :smile:
Obviously no fear of flying rocks and it seems one or two hit the camera.
