Re: Ralf's GS550

There is still time to get this bike ready for the 2015 season and join the P3 Light class.

Re: Hypothetical schedule question

Well, half my team wants to be at CTMP. She just needs a rig and a driver - I guess I know where my vote will be!! I do agree with Gary that the short tracks are more likely to have a better show. I just hope that we do not end up with a small number of rigs at the Festival, Mosport can be hard on t...

Passenger departure from rig

At the Sidecar racers AGM, the issue of flagging for a missing passenger was discussed. The key concern was immediate communication with the driver. We generally use the debris flag but this takes time to pick up and point at the driver. The suggestion was to point the furled yellow flag at the rig,...

Ralf's GS550

P3 Light GS550. Engine was built by the late Steve Crover and Ralf rode the bike for several years, winning the P3 Light championship in 2003 and 2004. The bike was raced in 2005 and that may have been its last time on the track. Bike was stored in the house since last used but moved to the garage l...

Re: Sidecar Reunion September 27/28

My reference to 3 new teams were of the 5 teams that broke the P2 lap record - poor wording on my part. Your list of the new teams is correct for vintage sidecars as a whole - an impressive number of new teams for one year. Thanks for raising the P1 lap times and congratulations.

Re: Sidecar Reunion September 27/28

It was a great weekend and nice to be with the modern sidecars. Thanks to all who came out and put on a fine display of vintage racing. It was unfortunate that the sidecar gremlins did not allow us to replicate Saturday's racing on Sunday. I think we should do this again next year. We will have to s...

Re: Questions for a sidecar project...

The misunderstanding appears to be based on the assumption that the replica was proposed for P2. P2 does not allow monocoque. However as has been noted, P3 allows replica monocoques. When the P3 sidecar rules were first proposed in 2002, the wording for replica monocoques was included. Although hub ...

Re: Questions for a sidecar project...

Rule changes are done outside of the AGM, the procedure is in the Constituion. The AGM was used to allow a one year trial of the GP class. The rules were refined after the trial year and submitted to a vote by ballot. The trial run of modern GP bikes was done at the AGM since all modern classes were...

Re: 2014 Quebec GP Results and Final Championships

I spoke with Neal and Mylaps will not accept additional names ie passengers or endurance team mates. Neal will likely make up a separate listing and post it on our site. It will take some time as it is all manual and requires going through all the results for heat and final races.

Pitting Sep 27/28

I would like to get all the sidecars (vintage and modern) to pit in the same area - easier to socialize and to tech! We will do our own tech and it will be done at your pit. The attraction of the lower west corner is power (limited) but it also can get very wet. I will pit on the upper part of the f...

Re: Questions for a sidecar project...

Eddy, I would love to see another sidecar on the grid. Your girlfriend is right - they are a lot of fun! A rule change of this nature would not be discussed at the AGM as it changes an existing rule. The only rule changes discussed at the AGMs since the change in rule change procedure in 2010 were t...

Re: Looking for a P1 500 bike

I am selling Ralf Scholtes' bikes and he has 2 P1 Honda 500s. They have not been run for several years and will need going over, but they are race prepped and each has the Suzuki four leading shoe front brake. Contact me by e-mail for pictures.

Gridding

A new grid arrangement was tried on Sunday, which I did not know about - one rig per row alternating left and right. I liked it. It gave us room and took up no more rows than 2 rigs every second row. Comments?
