The top 4 riders are really competitive.......looks like fun!

I don't understand why they don't tuck in behind the windscreen and get aerodynamic on the straight sections? Roll Eyes

Looks like big fun
I love the crash , he just rolled right over back onto the bike
When I raced something snapped in me when they dropped the flag , not the same mild mannered person , I turned into a fearless ruthless mean calculating competitor cause I love when they call my name to award the trophy !
Big Fun

Many years ago (maybe 20) a friend of mine bought a few of these bikes for the sole purpose of racing. His driveway was a freshly paved and about 1/4 long with a lot of turns. We'd race for hours - lots of contact and cutoff's. It was great fun and produced hours of bench racing over beer.

The best races are decided in the last 50 ft with a pack of 5 or 6 bikes so close together you could throw a blanket over them. All of them grinning from ear to ear. Who is gonna beak away and win ? Thatís what itís all
about ! Racing is a thrill , adrenaline is a high , but a win sticks with you for awhile !

What do those bikes use for engine/transmission units?

50cc engines with centrifugal clutch. They are twist-n-go. And if I had to guess, they go about 35mph or so...which seems like 70mph when just inches from the ground.
