    We only rent the track on Friday and Saturday.

    Thursday has nothing to do our event so Grange Motor Circuit as a business charges a $10 day pass or $30 to ride on the track.

    However as a courtesy if you arrive after 3pm Thurs you will not be charged for Thursday.

    You will sign the waiver as a racer or spectator then pay for our races on Friday morning and
    get our Wristband and Helmet Sticker. Please remove All previous helmet stickers before you
    sign the waiver & pay and of course bring your helmet Thanks!

    First off I want to Thank Neil and his staff for letting us GoPedders tag along and come race our scooters and quads at your event. You did a GREAT job of officiating and putting up with some of the pit lane antics. So again Thank you, and I will see you at Willow.

    BTW, do you have a list of the scooter and quad results per race? I don't know about the others, but some might like to see their name in print as having participated, no matter the placing.
    CP......
    HOW we ride today, may determine IF we can ride tomorrow

    Unless you have ever coordinated and scheduled an event (especially a racing event) before, you can never understand and appreciate all the passion, love, dedication and everything else it takes to pull this off.

    I mean this in a true and sincere way when I say "Hats off to those who put this together and see it through". It is my dream and on my bucket list to make it to one of these larger racing events. To the organizers: keep these going. To the hobbyists and enthusiasts: keep going to these.

    Love seeing the photos and videos but can't wait till the day where I get to catch up at a race like this.
