electric speedway bike . WHEN?

Recommended Posts

With the wind farm next to the Eddie Wright Raceway i can see Scunny becoming the centre of the universe of Electric Speedway.

I can't wait for the start of every race as the bikes line-up at the tapes and all you can hear is the sound of a hundred pairs of teeth munching pies, chips and peas then next lap as the bikes pass by you they are drowned out by the sound of a flock of starlings.

Jenga,,,

What happens if there is a power cut ???

exactly the same as in meetings as there run today

the meeting will be abandoned

no power means no start or red stop lights

no floodlights

and no automatic tape release

and no pa systems

A was thinking, in more relation to the bikes,,, but as you factor in other things, it will be more problematic.

i understood what you ment but i was just pointing out a power cut will stop a traditonal meeting just as easy as a futuristic electric 1

ive spoke to a few trials riders and watch them perform with electric trials bikes and i can only say i was very impressed

obviously speedway is slightly different as the lack of noise would play a big part in things

most people wont undersatand the actual power and torque of a electric motor  they are that powerfull they need geared down or soft start otherwise they could shear a solid shaft on start up

They barely had enough power to get a proper slid on.  Please let me be dead before that ever happens.

Ye don't have to watch it... but I agree, it wouldn't be the same.

If it's only the noise  you are worried about , they could just put flick cards in the spokes

If they ever proposed electric bikes and the sport was still going, it would only work in my view if the tracks had four grooves carved into them.  Those who went too fast would crash out but could if fit remount into their groove.  Call it speedextric.

Can see where your going with that,,, how about getting fans involved, letting them be in charge of the power and, make it so that it can be all put away in the box and travel round, might beat some planning laws there... It would be a bit like a Circus, which it isn't at the minute.
