It's been a while since we've heard any positive news about York Raceway, but after noting a couple of recent rumours about the venue being improved, we get a press release about the next meeting at the venue.
Although the last time that Straightliners ran at York was years ago, with the sound-sensitive Elvington replacing it on the Straightliners race calendar, there has been regular car-orientated meetings, and now, there's been a special push to get bikes out on the Melbourne track for this weekend, the 4th and 5th of July.
York Raceway are offering 50% off for riders' run-what-you-brung sign-on fee and 50% off admission per rider this weekend!
They will be also debuting three new classes to York Raceway:-
Outlaw Bike (slicks and wheelie bars) - run on the 1/8 mile.
Outlaw Street (treaded tyre, no wheelie bars) - run on the 1/8 mile.
True Street bike ( street legal bikes) - 10.00 heads-up breakout class, run on the ¼ mile.
Also a Super Street Bike shootout over the 1/8 mile title is up for grabs with £500 cash in the pot to split between the winner and runner up! A minimum of four bikes is required for the eliminations for the prize fund to be paid.
Sunday Street Wars will have the quickest four street legal bikes going for the Sunday Street Wars title. Plus trophies are up for grabs for street legal bikes -Quickest Japanese bike , Quickest Italian bike, Quickest German bike, Quickest American bike and Quickest British bike.
The track will be swept and glued throughout the weekend, so this really does look as though it could be the start of a return to York for bikes!
