  1. Hello all.



    I notice the VRRC is coming up at the island in a few weeks.

    Anyone been as a spectator before?
    Is it worth going down to have a look?
    Is there racing on most of the day Sat and Sun?

    Cant really find much info on the event out there in the ethernet.

    Thanks

  4. It is worth the watch. I can't remember how much tickets are for VRRC, but it is quite fun. You do get to stroll around the pits to have a geezer at the professionals and the amateur/hobby set up. Have a chat if you have questions and quite a fun and social event :).

  5. The guys who run the VRRC also run the ASBK so have been a bit busy getting ready for the final round up at Queensland Raceway this weekend.

    Info should start flowing on social media once they get the ASBK series done and dusted.

    Not sure about this round but the usual format is Practice, qualifying and racing on Saturday, Warm ups and races on Sunday.

  6. If you're a genuine fan of motorcycle racing you'll have the time of your life.
    You'll see more racing than on MotoGP weekend with a much greater variety of equipment and rider skill levels.
    Outstanding value for money.

    You'll have such a good time you'll be hanging out to see the last round of the Pirelli Road Race Series at Broadford on 13/14 October.
