Dave Coates will be burning rubber at BikeWise 2017

SG203350

Great news… once again our local Darlington based world record holder - Dave Coates will be performing at BikeWise 2017 on Sunday 23rd July.
The car park at the Police HQ is looking forward to having some burning rubber ‘deposited’ on it by Dave Smile
This is Dave's 22ndt consecutive BikeWise ( and he still doesn't look a day older !!) - a fantastic achievement and we are now seeing second and third generations of families enjoying the skills that Dave shows on two (& four) wheels - long may it continue.
Dave will be performing a couple of shows during the day ( times to be finalized and published later on this site ) and he will be available at his van throughout the day for autograph's, photo's and any questions you might like to put to him...
Dave will be using a variety of Yamaha bikes at the show including the Yamaha MT10 , MT09, MT07 his quad & the beast of them all….his Yamaha 50cc moped !!

UK Minimoto Championship–Thank You

IMG_5109Many Thanks to Alan McIntosh for bringing  Round 1 of the UK Minimoto Championship to  Teesside Karting today (Sunday 30 April)

This round was staged with support from the Durham Agency Against Crime & BikeWise and gave members of the BikeWise Mini Bike Club an opportunity to race in a major mini bike championship (which has helped to kick start a large number of local riders into competing, successfully in major adult classes of motorcycle racing throughout the country)

Many Thanks to all the families & riders who travelled south from Scotland to compete in this meeting, to all the BikeWise riders & their families for supporting the event & to Paul Franklin & staff from Teesside Autodrome for the use of the track ( and the continued availability fortnightly on a Tuesday evening) & finally to Alan McIntosh for giving riders the opportunity to compete & progress with their riding skills

The weather shone today and we had a great afternoon’s racing, plenty of photos of the day to follow..

UK Minimoto Championship round 1 at Teesside Karting on Sunday 30 April.

These are the instructions for the UK Minimoto Championship round 1 at
Teesside Karting on Sunday 30 April.

http://www.teessidekarting.co.uk/track/contact/

Sign-on will be from 11.15am till 12.30. The riders briefing taking place at
12.40 in the signing on area with the first practice to start at 1.15pm on
the dot. I hope to be finished at 6pm.

This is a very long track so gearing will be 7/62ish for 6.5" wheels and the
longest gearing you have for the 5" wheels on the 910s 7/60ish

There will be only 2 Junior Groups as the track is so big it can accommodate
this. All juniors who took part in a full seasons racing last year will
start in group 1 all others plus new novice will be in group 2. Again this
will change after qualifying with the top 25 going in group 1. Group 2 will
be more for the novice/new riders.

Any BikeWise riders either novice or experienced are welcome to our UK
Championship on this weekend. Junior Fee £35 Senior £40 and transponder hire
£5, Additional class £10. There are no UK Championship membership fees for
this event if you are a registered BikeWise member only doing the one event.
Please fill in the scrutineering sheet before you sign in.

Format for QUALIFYING practice will be:
Open Class: 2 x 8 mins.
Junior Group 2:  2 x 10 mins.
Junior Group 1:  2 x 10 mins.
Middle and Heavy: 2 x 10 mins.
Feathers and Lights: 2 x 10 mins.

Format for RACES will be:
Open Class: 4 x 6 lap races rotating grid.
Junior Group 2: 3 x 6 lap races.
Junior Group 1: 3 x 6 lap races.
Production Middle and Heavy: 3 x 6 lap races.
Feathers and Lights: 3 x 6 lap races.

We could do with another first aider on this Sunday can anyone else lend a
hand?
After qualifying can all parents make sure their racers know what grid
position they are to be on and make sure they know where to sit on the dummy
grid. Sheets will be displayed in the office. Any rider not starting on
their correct grid position will get a 10 second time penalty.

Thanks Tosh
