I'd like to improve my slow speed stuff.
Does anyone know if there are any moto gymkhana clubs in Dublin/ Kildare?

Not that I know of, but you could look into hiring a go kart track among a few mates.
Contact Athboy Karting Centre.

Every few months me and a few mates go to an empty train station parking lot, set out half tennis balls to act as cones and try to negotiate them a low speeds. Very beneficial.

Hi Bren,

I'm interested too. But you won't find any group existing here. But we always can create one! Have the basic rules downloaded, so we need cones and a place to practice!

Hit me with a pm if you are interested.

thanks for the replies... so it looks like there's none around - yeah maybe we'll start up something so. maybe give it a couple months, so we're not doing it on cold ground.
