I wonder will they run this again this year. Couldn't do anything other than recommend this even just as something to tick off your bucket list.

Well we had great plans to hire a track and get to do testing in the morning and let anyone who wanted a go jump on for a few euro in the afternoon but all the tracks are booked at the weekends except nutts corner but that's an epic journey. There will be a few places at the track training day in mondello in early march if anyone wants to get in touch. Catch is like last year you have to have your licence applied for. Last year we got 3 new passengers and 2 new riders. There are 5-6 new outfits out for this year which means for newcomers it should be really exciting.

As far as outfits go a new crew this year got there's for around 3500. But the sky is the limit depending on how serious you are. There are a couple around ready to go for around 5000.

I think their is a starter outfit for sale in cork . We started off last year on a starter bike it can be done as cheap as you want it to be . Our biggest spend last year was tyres and entry's.
But the sidecar lads ar a great bunch of lads we could have run on scrubs and it would have been cheaper . Best thing I done . Only regret is I didn't bite the bullet and buy a sidecar sooner . Roll on 2018

Last minute lads but a bunch of us going testing in Kirkistown tomorrow have to be there for 12. Short passengers so if anyone is free and wants a go let me know. We're hiring the track so once you have a helmet and we might be able to get leathers. Not likr training day no licence needed.

Only seeing this now but was working anyway. Next time it happens, could you let us know again?
