Re: A couple of little bikes

Congratulations, and some great shots there. I recently heard about the little Skyteam bikes when I saw a bloke with an Ace 125. When I found out how cheap they were I immediately thought of running one at the salt. Are you going to run again next year? Hi w3stie, No idea whether we will be back ag...

Re: Photos from Lake Gairdner 2014

Mostly gopro, and a little on a little Canon point-and-shoot. Given how bright it was out there I am quite happy with how it worked out, still teaching myself how to edit videos.

Re: 2014 Times/Records

Re: A couple of little bikes

Less than 24 hours before we leave the Skyteam is complete! axles lockwired, racing numbers on, steering damper fitted, ready to pack and go. https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1/1743440_747685001917566_1215109401_n.jpg https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1/1...

Gasoline for Speed Week

Hi All,

just wanted to confirm, I see there are some pretty tight specifics for the gasoline to be used in race vehicles. Will branded service station unleaded/premium unleaded (e10 or below) pass as race/record run fuel or do we need to buy something specific?

Thanks!

Re: A couple of little bikes

Thanks,

Safety wire, tyres for the Yamaha, tape for the lenses, racing numbers and fireproof sleeves for fuel lines are the main things left on the tech to-do list
