Team Spawn Race Report
After predictions of rain all week, Saturday
was sunny and warm! Jaminaz, Taylor, Larry and I convoyed to
the track and I set to breaking in my newly-assembled 50 Superbike, waking Spawn and Scyther from their
winter's sleep in between heat cycles, while Jaminaz used Zephyr for the New Rider Clinic. The hardest thing
was going slow, but I surely didn't want to blow up my new motor...Bill and Seth weren't so lucky as each seized
a piston, ouch. Ron and Team Omzig were there in force, as was Ralph and Time Bandits and several others!
Sixteen bikes altogether, I think! Great showing for a test day! Ron's and Darrin's GP bikes are radically
fast, and everyone was looking good on the track - my new bike ran smoooth, and I got in all but the final heat
cycle on the break-in! Everything is looking great for next weekend's season opener, pray for Sun!
