I had Paul the site owner change my name from BiMoPed to MotorBicycleRacing.
It is no secret and no conspiracy
Just about everyone but you knows who I am
including the 9 ebike guys that
showed up at the Willow Springs race in June.
I didn't like the Bi name and the main reason for being on the forum is promoting
motorized bicycle racing in Southern California hence the name change.
When I get some time I would be happy to explain how the SoCal race dates are
It mainly comes down to the weather, daylight hours and being able to space out
three races in a year with enough time in between them.
Also avoid holidays and other undesirable dates.
When you consider all the above there really isn't a lot of room to move the 3 dates.
Dave was at the Willow Springs race in June and told me that there wasn't going to be a
Death race this October.
I announced the Oct 22nd race right after Willow Springs as Sept 24th but after looking
at the weather reports for the last 10 years moved it to Oct 22nd because the average
temp goes down 10' from over 90' to about 80'http://www.grangeracetrack.com/calendar.htm
If you look at the Grange Race Track calendar there are no races in September and
October is booked solid for every weekend except for the last one.
Why? because it's too hot in September!
On November 6th daylight savings kicks in and it gets dark at 5 pm which is really
miserable as the days are really short and winter weather is starting.
There are no permanent lights at the track.
Never going to do a race in November or December.
Never going to do a race in August or September as it's way too hot.
That leaves October as the only choice.
I am paying attention to the weather this month and the race may be moved
by a week or two in October 2012.
I can give you the same reasoning for a race date in late March or April but
am still not 100% decided on the exact date.
The 3rd race will probably split the time between April? and Oct and will deal
with the heat by being a night race under lights.
Anything else you want to know?
