i was told if you've got an ape pickup (kitted out to race spec)you can enter too,, Thats 4 races each about 1.5 - 2hours long completing 110 laps per race.. (malossi 102cc, 19mmcarb etc, roll bar+bumper bar, and remove side windows -replace with nets,)
this would be a fine bit o fun,, But a fair distance for meself,, maybe someone else interested??
EMAIL address+phone number on flyer of organisers contact them if interested...
Hopefully be in my new place next month. Plenty of room there. About 4k for brand new race prepped Ape and race entries. And you own it after. Meeting was a qualifiying session and a 1.5hr race, Teams had 3 or 4 drivers. 4 Drivers. Grand each. Im in!! There is a 'hire' one avalable per meeting. Getting the price this week. Split 4 ways it could be a good laugh.

Malossi 175 'crosser'
They aren't tuned as yet. 43 stroke with a 110 cc kit on. The fella knew nothing about where smallframe motor tuning is at tbh. Nice bloke but I drove the ape and it was very slow. Might make good banger type racing. It will all be close for sure but after a while people will get bored unless they go fast. That's what happened in Italy. Now look at em. They fly. Mad things.

If they have a kit on surely that means they are tuned. Just because they havnt had £kkk spent having someone build an engine. Banger racing? I didn't see a single pikey. Slow, one of the closest and most popular race championships in the UK is 2CV racing. Slow, but all as slow/fast as each other with 'wayward' handling. £4k Ape then having to spend 5k on an engine will kill it before its even started. I thought that scooter clubs/shops would be getting involved as it's multi driver and costs can be spread between 3 or 4 people. It was a good day out with friendly banter between competitors. Lets hope it grows. It was entertaining seeing 4 slow Apes 'dicing', with 15 on the grid it would be a fantastic spectical. Driving round and round on your own as you did cannot replicate what it's like to race them.
By banger type racing I mean as the are all on a par paint will be scraped. In fact the fella mentioned this to me himself. It will be very close. At the moment they have a bolt on kit. Maybe that is tuned then. Glad you had a good day with it anyway
