And so now the racing begins..

Postby laverdaian » Thu Sep 13, 2012 3:01 am

Followers of the Monty progress will know that we have worked long and hard testing, and preparing for the upcoming race series in NSW and New Zealand. CeeJay arrived on Monday and we have added a few special tricks
to improve performance and today prepared to load up for the trip. As we needed to sort a transport box for NZ we thought the best idea was to do it here and eliminate any problems early. We couldn't just leave the box in dull steel though could we.. so here is the result. A few last minute tweaks and he's boxed and ready to go. No mistaking which one is the LAVERDA unit is there..
Wish us luck guys as we head off for another exciting adventure with OzLaverda Racing.... ;)

Ya Gotta Love Ya Monty

Looking good guy's all a bit excited about this weekend. All going well we then cross the ditch for some fun. Back for the nationals at Eastern Creek, no trips south as far as I know, would love to ride the Monty at Broadford I reckon it would be a good match those two.
Will keep you up to date from Wakefield.

Ian, CJ, Leroy and Blair arrived early for rider briefing and scruitineering. All is well with the bike with Ian and Blair both out on the track already. Blair has completed one race with a second in class result and the bike running smoothly.

We'll be broadcasting some footage from the track on our TV channel http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ozlaverda-racing

Here is a link to some pit footage earlier today.

Second race completed with a great start from Blair then settled in to a consistent rhythm. The bike sounds great and is starting to settle into a decent race setup. One more race today and then the main event the 1 Hour starts at 11am Sunday morning.

UPDATE From Blair

A great day on the Monty, if I hadn't screwed up the start on the 3rd race it would have been perfect. I had a false neutral at the grid in fact I had no idea what bloody gear I ended up with I just know it wasn't the one I needed. 3rd on the day is a good result for the whole team, Ian and CJ have put in a huge effort, the bike is running sweet and we are ready for the 1 hour tomorrow.
Will keep you up to date, things are looking good.
