It sounds like this track is all good and fun but if we're going to get some serious organised ebike racing happening then a proper kart (or other) track is going to need to be sorted out.
Still looking forward to any pics/vids though!
Yeah interesting! And funny just a few days ago I was also thinking it would be cool to hire out the Port Melbourne indoor kart track. I have never been there but drive past it once a week. Not sure about oil on the track from the go karts though?? Bonus is all-weather so maybe good for a mid-winter so long as we can swing it. Cost might be kinda much but need to negotiate to have track exclusive for say an hour or so would be enough and then we could have a group ride down to the bay or something after for debrief/analysis.

Such is the role of Aussie Jester. I take it Pendragon8000 is OK ?
(ok that may have been a little too cryptic for most ?)
Yeah too cryptic for me, hint please.
And not sure if it was food poisoning or more too much drinking the night before, or combination of both...
The problem was my wife's friend calls her early Sunday groaning she has food poisoning and can hardly get out of bed to go to work so can she take over her shift today last minute. So there goes my ebike Sunday, I am now in charge of staying home minding the kids, but on the plus side it was not totally unproductive, we sledgehammered away a garden wall that was previously annoyingly close to car doors.
Anyway... the part about the supposed food poisoning is suss because last night my wife checked facebook and saw the "poisonee" on a mutual friends photo stream out clubbing Saturday. But giving benefit of the doubt maybe it was a dodgy kebab at 2am on the way home... who knows.
Anyway, just another one of life's unexpected little twists. Really sorry Joe and Alan I couldn't make it. I considered driving out and bringing the kids but bike takes the whole back seat folded down, and 2 kids in front passenger seat is kinda illegal.
Anyway, if the universal gods allow it, I will be at the next FrockFest.
The ferry ride MikeBeastie and I take is quite a fun journey, about an hour each way from Southbank to Williamstown. Earliest boat is 10:30 so henceforth we are generally planning to arrive on track around 11:40.
