  1. Hi,

    Advice needed.

    I want to going racing, but need some advice on where to start, what class, how much to budget for etc..

    I've done some checking, determined the Hartwell is my closest club, I know what licence I'll need, but still lacking info on class and budget.

    Talking of budget, I don't have much of one, so that will drive the class (I presume).

    My intent is to have fun. I'm never going to win any medals, but want to have fun during a club season, have a decent track bike for some ride days and nothing more.

    Any pointers? Anyone done the same sort of thing?


  2. well, what is your budget?
  3. Bucket racing is what you are after!
    Cheap and fun, nuff said. :cool:
  4. As Mr Biv said above, Bucket Racing is the cheapest way to get into racing, and if you have a limited budget and aren't too heavy, that might suit you. Check out their website on http://ozbucketracing.com/

    Another good alternative is Post-Classic racing. Forget the image of vintage bikes - their New Era 2 class caters for bikes from 1990-1995 so you can race a good modern-ish bike (Think CBR600 F3 or similar for about $4-5k or a race-ready VFR400 for similar price) for not a lot of money. Competitive fun racing at a reasonable price. See http://www.postclassicracing.com.au/

    Good luck.
  5. The Post Classic looks my sort of thing, I'll check up and see if there are Vic clubs that do the same.
