Official: Confirmation of Road Closure In
Entries maxed out
Hedging "Trimmed"

Going wireless this year
Nothing wrong with our own system (despite rumours)
Trying out a new system from Sideways-racing, so we can set up more beams without having to run 15 miles of cable, between the start, 60', Top speed & Finish line.
So... we'll have 60' times and "terminal speed" for every run
Sideways are comming down to set this up as they are familiar with their system, something we couldn't justify having that expense sitting in storage for 364 days a year ... should be interesting
and everything in up to 6 & 700 BHP

Anyone fancy comming down on Sat or Sunday morn to give a hand... more than welcome, getting good at shutting down the main N71 and setting up a drag track, but faster is better. 7AM

Entry:Tenner & Kids Free

re: Class Bumps: Modified bikes, engine/chassis difference (Fine line, but black 'n white for years ... better than "out"

ish...
the lights are also part of the wireless system, So they'll be different to our own set. they'll still run down in a "Sportsman" format, 3 Ambers & Green, 0.5 secs apart.

Diff this year is the stage beams are on the wheel as opposed to being ahead of the wheel, so normally bikes roll on to break the beam, with this system they'll roll off the beam.

So no doing the "Rossi" fixing yer jocks and moving all over the place, cos if you move off the beam your oficially started.
Some of you may remember the first year the latest system was set up, it was "Proper" with a stage & pre-stage, but the beams wern't as fine as the new ones and there were 70% red lights cos the break window was too small, the slightest movement and they were tripped.
So for all those who couldn't sit still , we moved it to a start beam just ahead of the stage.

THIS YEAR it's back to stage but with a little more leeway, still doesn't mean you can be farting around looking for your mates in the crowd

All will be explained on the morning, so.... LISTEN and be early, most of the updates will be going up on the www.westcorkmotorcycleclub.ie
so you could ask any questions there ... it's easier to keep track, 'cos I'm not feck arsing around here checking between carlow & recession & I had a spin threads making sure ye're all happy

Monday Bump...

This is going to be mental,
Looks like Class G will be running the finals with the fastest 16, if they keep it together, normally there's only 8 or 4
and I recon' over 2000 Spectators last year.

Note to self:
Bring Smokes, Coffee, Vallium and least of all.... Don't PANIC
