Introduction from the Chairman of the Bike Section
Welcome to the world of RC Bike Racing. For those who are current members of the class – we hope you have another enjoyable and competitive seasons racing. For newcomers to the class – we welcome you to the section and encourage you to engage with other racers and ask any questions that you may have.
New features to our section for the 2019 season will be the introduction of the Clubman Series – an opportunity for members to race any class of bike at Club without any rules. More information can be found later in this Handbook.
We have an exciting calendar for 2019 providing a good geographical spread of circuits across the country.
As an ex motor cycle racer, with 2 wheel racing firmly in my blood, I found that once introduced to RC bikes I was hooked and it served to revive my competitiveness in RC racing. I believe it is the ultimate RC racing discipline with the unique quality of being the only category to deliberately balance on 2 wheels. With ever evolving bike designs and technology that enhance close competitive racing combined with a strong fun factor, there has never been a better time to get yourself an RC bike and come and join the gang. If it’s a true challenge that you are seeking then there is no better place to find it than to come RC Bike racing.
I look forward to seeing you trackside for the 2019 season. Alan Leighton – Chairman

Arrving at the track we unfortunately were met by a bit of a downpour which had threatened all the way up from down South. But the Halifax track seems to dry pretty quickly and it didn't take long before we were out practicing and the grip was good. Times were very quick, with Darren and Peter being the guys to beat. I managed to get my bike to get slower and slower all day and into Sunday for some strange reason :-) Team Kamtec were going well with their three bikes, I believe Alan was trying some PMT tyres as an alternative to the Roadies and GRPs, not certain how he found them. But could be another option available.
We arrived at the Adur track mid day Saturday the weather was damp and windy but there was a few bikes out on track braving the conditions . As the afternoon went on the weather started to get better and the track started to get busy . Right from the off you could see that the FF01 bikes of Gary Clarke and Peter Vater was putting in some fast lap times and looking like bike to beat.
