As demonstrated in the first race, Liam's got a very useful sprint to unleash on his competitors at the end there.

Mr Comp. Sec. announces the 2024 calendar:

Sat 27 Apr Enerdale (Hull) 11-4
Sat 28 Apr Enerdale (Hull) 10-3
Sun 19 May Bath 11-4
Sat 1 Jun Gravesend 12:30-5pm
Sun 2 Jun Gravesend  11-3
Sun 23 Jun York 12-5
Sat 27 Jul Redbridge 11-4
Sun 28 Jul Hillingdon 11-4
16-18 Aug World Championships Betteshanger, Kent
Sat 14 Sep Rhyl  12-5
Sun 15 Sep Rhyl  11-4
Sat 12 Oct Darley Moor
Sun 13 Oct Darley Moor

Still one or two to come, and the vexèd question of how, absent the first event being Hillingdon, how the box of assorted crap gets from Larrington Towers to Hull.  Doubly so since Mr Woolrich's car just failed its MOT and is basically beyond economic repair chiz.

There's also the prospect of the AGM at Darley Moor in October, which could be rather bracing.  The provisional plan is to blag the use of the TurboNutterBastard motorcyclist training room on the Saturday evening, and award whatever trophies are not in contention.

I've added the dates to the YACF calendar.  If you're reading this in The Future, in case of changes the canonical list is at https://www.bhpc.org.uk/events/2024-races/

That was silly, even by GCN standards. Pleasingly silly! Obviously at 20mph+ aero is king, so they should have removed the moped's mirrors. Proper racing motorcycles don't have them! Or a proper Vespa...

In which case it'll be the second AGM I've missed since 1983 chiz.  The first being 1996 when I was in ABROAD getting married.

Back to the video for a sec, I noted large amounts of solar panels on the infield, or whatever the term is for the island of land inside a race track. Seems a good place to site them on land that otherwise wouldn't be doing much.

That reminds me, Barney had a cameo role in one of my videos from about 20 years ago, riding the ‘Spincycle’.

Greetings from only a little bit in The Future!  Exciting news: The race meet on the 19th of May will now be at Shrewsbury, where the bottom corner is much less of An Bastard, and there are power sockets and a bus shelter for the facilitation of TEH TIEM TEEM.   :thumbsup:

I've been distracted by the Worlds.  Registrations for the first event of the 2024 season, in Hull on the 27/28th of April, are open to members and non-members:

(Bring your own water.  The track is good, but there's a conspicuous absence of a tap.)

From which I guess the box of Assorted Stuffs that spent the off-season hibernating in the kitchen of Larrington Towers found its way home, via Professor Larrington and Twed's neighbour.

It did indeed.   :thumbsup:

We did spend a while worrying about who had some of the other Stuffs, blissfully unaware that Dan had already unpacked it all and hidden it on the track side of the fence for us.

Russell's footage of the 4-lap race:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLP3Pv5AUXI

In which our intrepid hero manages to stay ahead of Slash for 1 whole lap, plus about three frames of TEH OFFICIAL FINISH LINE VIDEO (I checked).

Also, 45min race: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_aIHvlHkE4


I think we're going to have to wait for LordHostis to provide Sunday's Boat Race footage...

I've been slack at updating this.  Shrewsbury was scorchio, Slash still won, and we shortened the 90 minute race due to another threat of mutiny.

Still time to register for Gravesend this weekend (Closes 12:00 tomorrow (Thursday)).  Will we manage to do an actual 90 minute race this time?

Meanwhile, registrations for the York event on Sunday 23 June have opened.  That's the weekend of the York Rally for those playing along at home.
