Just outta curiousity who races what in what class and where?
I built a '66 Honda Superhawk to run the 350GP class in both AHRMA and WERA.I am only 3 hour from both Roebling Road and Jenning GP so I guess they would be my home tracks. This is my first season and have only gotten to race one race(Roebing Road) and 2 practices(Daytona). My season was cut short by a greyhair pullin in front of me on the street. So now it's just regrouping and looking forward to getting back on the track.

you could run it 350 and 500 gp with wera pretty well. you could also run it in v1 and v3 if you were real daring. v3 would probably be almost suicidal though. with ahrma youd run it in 350 sportsman. what do you have on it for a brake? is it a drum? then your good. im guessing it is, since you built it for that. you cant run a disk in v1 or 350 with wera. im not up on the ahrma rules as much.

George,
I am going to try and fit a race into a trip to Georgia in July. I have been planning on doing Cyclejam with WERA at Road Atlanta June 27- July 1, but they are not running all of the vintage classes. They are only running V6 and 7. I don't think my Seca 550 would be competetive. I could run Clubman and D superbike, but again I worry about being competetive especially at a HP track like Road A. (It isn't my favorite track anyway). So I am thinking about doing the next weekend at Kershaw, SC where WERA is running the full vintage schedule so I could run My 350 in V-1 and the Seca in V-4 and Clubman and D- Super.

Anybody have some info on Kershaw? I have never been there or heard a report on it.

Political correctness

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Fuuzy,
I don't know for sure if I am going to Kershaw or not. I am still looking at all the possibilities. Since this is a trip to primarily see family and such I will have to see how it works out. Plus, I am still stuck here in Alaska and both of my race bikes need work before they are ready. When we get back to our summer place in WI in another 2 weeks, my wife has a list of stuff for me to do that will eat into my bike prep time like you wouldn't believe. Then I just agreed to buy a 500 Ascot that is going to be a race bike too. Anybody want to buy a CB350 racebike? I will have one on the market soon. Can deliver to the SE or points in between WI and GA.

ken,

kershaw is a great track, except for the last three corners (they literally ran out of room/property)....so the corners are real tight, like 90 degree right handers.

you'll have a blast on the rest of the course (especially the three sisters).

i'd give kershaw an 8 out of 10.

i'd race there every year if it wasn't so effin' far from philly!

good luck, and don't sell the cb350 until i can race you on it. then i will allow you to give it to me, and i will add it to my trophy collection of cb350's that i have beaten...strike that, humiliated on the track.

MUH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA! ALL OF YOUR CB350S ARE MINE!

george,

you should bring that hawk up to a summit round....it is a serious haul, but there will be lots of guys/gals to chase.

summit rules for lightweight and middleweight bikes!

Texy,
Talk is cheap. See you at Kershaw. That's right, I'm calling you out again since it looks like neither of us can make Grattan this year. You talk big for a young whipper snapper. I think I raced Summit Point before you were born. I think I first raced it in 1977 0r 78 on my Honda CB400F. I would race you for your 350, but I already have 3 parts bikes and don't need another. I was winning championships (4 or 5) while you were still puking up your mothers thin, sour milk. (I've always wanted to use that line) So you can talk big while you hide in Philly (city of my birth, BTW) in your ice cream truck, while the real racers race.

The reality is, I don't know when, where or if I am going to be able to fit in any races this summer. I have to be back in AK on August 1 and won't even get to see my bikes in the garage until June 12. Not much time considering the jobs around the summer place that are waiting on me and both current race bikes need work. The possibilities are: Road Atlanta, Kershaw, Grattan or Mid-Ohio.
