Lads,

For anyone interested in doing this next year, details listed below. (I'm sure he won't mind)

Entries for the 2012 Nifty Fifty Race to be held in Mondello Park on the 26th of Feb 2012 are now open.

The Race is open to Honda Cub/Club's 50/70/90 that are unmodified and in standard condition. This will be explained further in the Reg's and Entries to successful applicants.

The cost is 320 Euros.

You will need to have your Team name, Rider details, Contact details, What class your riding in and Team Captains name for me.

Entries can be paid via direct lodge to (details on request to 0858454194) or by sending a draft to

Ed Byrne

10 Danes Court
Lusk Village
Lusk
Co Dublin.

All entries are strictly on a first come, first served basis. Place's can not be held nor can deposits be paid (this is due to people messing me about for months last year in regard to payment) so please don't ask.

There will be a standby list, again first come first serve.

Any questions mail me at edbyrn@yahoo.com (edbyrn@yahoo.com)

I know that as of 2.02pm today, there are only 20 places left, so get in quick if you want to do this....Binx and I were at it this year and it was great craic. My brother did it and has already paid for an entry for next year.

is this the endurance race?

Yeah, kinda. Like a relay race where each of the riders does a certain amount of laps, come in and give the bike to the next person and they go straigh out. Some craic at it this year, I was pissing myself. My brother getting the knee down on a Honda 50 was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Why am I not surprised??!! He was lapping WAY quicker than anyone else out there.

Well, that was a fun and unexpected day. I got there about 9. Had a chat with Gizmo, helped my brother put his bike into one of the garages. There was a familiar face beside him (Eoiny from Biker.ie) and he asked was I racing. I told him I wasn't, I was only spectating. He asked did I want to race as one of the lads on his team let him down, so I thought "fuck it, why not?" and so I signed on and got my lid scrutineered and that was it. I got talked into being the first man out, which entailed a Le Mans style start, so yes, I had to run across the track to the waiting bike and join the melee of fifty bikes scrapping for the first corner. I nearly didn't make it I was laughing so hard!!! laugh.gif

Overall it was a great day, cut short as I had to run an errand so I left at 1pm, but at least I got a good stint on the track. Was watching for Phil, never saw ya man. Next time!

Moment of the day? My brother falling off his bike at the same corner twice in three laps!!!! I could hear him shouting at the bike from the pit wall!!!!!! 25300.gif

I'll lash up a few pics later.

yep - that was us - name was initially due to amount of black duct tape holding bike together but its a fair description of my thumb now :)

had a great 1/2 lap following ryan farquhar and then got buzzed by Scott Redding a couple of times - those boys can move !

best memory was running out of petrol out the back, turned in the back gate and arrived into garage by back door to the lads falling around laughing at the sight of me !

if anyone has any good pics or knows any good photographers sites let us know...

was that bike 77 - ryan farquhar's bike - don't know who was riding at the time but he was fairly out of it. I was standing right at pitwall where he came off and he took some hit all right.

Tore the visor off his helmet as well - fecked up the bike and knocked them out of the race. I'd say they had done maybe 60 laps at that stage. Pity because Farquhar was only out on the bike the once.
