Prix! - 6 Sept. 2003
The Vittoria Grand Prix was held at Brightside
on 6th September 2003. The weather was cool and cloudy
and threatening rain, but then it cleared up to a nice
The track was dry but slightly moist underneath. The first race was a 5 lapper! The track has been extended at the bottom end to make a high speed entry hair pin bend which also lengthens the main straight. The were a few stacks on the new hairpin resulting in a few aches and bruises. We later had a 20 lapper as a warm up for the 2 Hr.
The 2 Hour was going to start at 3pm but because Neale had a broken throttle cable we all had to wait til he was able to borrow one from another bike that wasn't going in the 2 Hour. So instead of breaking up the line up the boys (and girls) had a quick 5 lapper while they waited for Parko. The race ended up starting at 3:42 PM. A record 16 bikes started the 2 Hour with 10 finishing the race.
The Blayney boys Tim & Tony won the 2 Hr race showing blistering pace and great riding. At the end of the race it was discovered that their bike had a broken right rear swingarm. Great effort lads!
I think young Jeremy was second and someone else was third... A great day was had by all which ended up in a barbeque, party and camp out.
