Today was a bike track ride day, again it was sunny with a chilly breeze. The track started off damp after last night’s rain so riders were a little hesitant till around mid-morning, then on a dry track they opened the throttle and let rip. Altho’ it was a track day, the experienced riders gave a demonstration of what can be expected at next weekend’s Bike Race meeting, it should be interesting to watch. There was only one major incident with an experienced rider high siding it going into T7 and ending up with a broken arm and wrist and a severely damaged bike, otherwise all of the riders from experienced to novices managed to behave themselves.
Also found out today the WASCC is hosting a “Christmas in July” next Saturday 20th July in the upstairs Media Centre, starting at 5.30pm and going till late. The club is planning to introduce the Barbagallo Raceway Youth Sponsorship initiative. The idea being to raise funds to encourage the youth of today into our great sport.The will be a catered dinner and a cash bar. This promises to be a great informal get-together and a chance for WASCC members, committee, staff and all categories of Officials to socialise, have a pleasant evening as well as raise funds for a good cause.
