COUNTDOWN TO THE 2016 TOWNSVILLE TOURIST TROPHY
Hi guys, only five more days till we all start coming together for the 2016 TT.
We thought every day until Friday, we would try and give you a little more info about the goings on at the event. Not just the racing side of things, but what is available at the track etc.
Look out for the very important FINAL INSTRUCTIONS. They will be posted anytime soon and every competitor needs a copy to know how the event will run with the all important practice and race orders, riders briefing, etc, as well as changes to the sup regs.
We are still accepting nominations as well, so if you are undecided about whether you want to ride, you still can enter. Just hurry up though – avoid a late fee and get it in ASAP!
Just to let everyone know, Saturday morning early, the club will be holding a breakfast BBQ. We will be cooking bacon and egg burgers for anybody who is hungry. Price is $5.00 each. We will have a limited supply, so get in quick. We will also have a coffee van on site for all those who need a caffeine fix to start the day. Our usual food conveyor, Janelle, will be there at little later to cater for lunches and tea. A pizza stall is also going to be set up. Breakfast on the Sunday is going to be available as well, with Janelle coming early in the morning to supply breakfast.
OK, that’s it for today. Another update tomorrow.
Stay tuned for another riveting rundown – LOL.

Another in our Series for our TT is the All Powers Solo Veterans - 12 Hot Laps -

The Trick with this one is that the combined age of the bike and rider must exceed 60 years. So the young fellas need to ride a 40 year old bike to qualify - saying that some of our riders can ride next year's model and still get in :)

$100 bucks up for grabs - Get you nominations in.
