Dunsfold Honour Ride Saturday 6th July 2013

 

I can now confirm the timings of this event which is open to any motocyclist on any machine. Run by Surrey RBL HQ and Surrey RBRL we're aiming for several hundred bikes/trikes to complete multiple laps of the Dunsfold Park race track on Saturday 6th July 2013. 
Due to copyright restictions I can't mention that on the day before a Dunsfold Park based 'reasonably priced' automobile TV programme is being filmed...

The first meeting point will be at the Alfold Village Hall, Alfold Crossroads, Cranleigh, Surrey, GU6 8JB. You're welcome to arrive from 1030hrs for Tea/coffee and registration. £5 per bike gets you a handle bar ID strap for access.
1230hrs: We'll move en-mass on to the southern track and once formed up proceed via 'Hammerhead' to park in front of the podium/general public.
We'll begin a two minute silence with a short revving of our bikes ('Rev' of Rememberance) which the Guniess book of Records will hopefully confirm as a world record.

You'll complete 11 laps of the track in groups of 30 (50mph speed limit) which will be posted on You-tube then relax whilst cyclists then walkers do their laps until:

1445hrs: Ride 21 miles to Royal Logistic Corp's HQ open day where we'll repeat our 'Rev' of Rememberance in the areana.
Those who wish can return to Dunsfold for the closing ceromony at 1645hrs.

No prior registration is required but if you could post your interest this would be very helpful. This will be an event to remember.

WK CELEBRATES TT DEBUT

WK Bikes is celebrating its first Isle of Man TT, winning maximum
positive exposure at the event and in the media, plus a 109 mph
practice lap for the rapidly developing 650cc lightweight class
machine.
The lightweight TT machine is based on the WK 650i sports bike and was
prepared by Hampshire Motorcycles and Quads for the company's debut in
this year's Isle of Man TT races, where during the first Saturday
practice and under yellow flags, it lapped at over 109mph in the hands
of Gary Johnson, before he handed it over to Dave Johnson, (pictured),
who was side-lined by a technical issue in the Lightweight TT race.
"This was our first outing at the TT and although we didn't come away
with any silverware this year, we certainly raised a few eyebrows with
the level of performance after such a short development period, "
explained WK sales manager Henry Maplethorpe.
"We will be back next year and judging from the response to this
year's team effort and the pace of our development programme, we
expect to see more WK machines fighting for rostrum places in
2014,"said Maplethorpe.
WK also reports that the heavy media coverage has already had a
positive effect at both trade and retail customer levels and has had
to increase theorder for the next batch of 650i machines to cope with
the post TT demand.
