Hi everyone I am relatively new member to this Forum .....

I run a Suzuki VJ22 RGV based Bike at Land Speed events in Australia ....

While I don't have an RD/RZ I am considering using an RZ Engine in the future ..... and have been following things on here for a while ....

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Dry Lake Racers Australia will be running their annual Speedweek Land Speed Trials at Lake Gairdner in South Australia from Feb 29th - Mar 4th 2016

Image

Speedweek in Oz runs the same rules as Speedweek at Bonneville in the USA .... So it has both Bikes and Cars ...... there is a number of Two Strokes that run at the event and I will post more info about these as it becomes available .....

Thanks

Pete

Hey Pete, Jon probably meant me :). Pete and I have both run RGV's on the lake. I think when we reach the limit of the RGV we will look at bored & stroked RZ engines. Both being 2 stroke tragic's.

Im trying to get higher speed with more HP via methanol and Pete is going the better aero route.

Hey Pete ive got a new phone and better plan so will give ya a ring.

Heres a slide show I put together from this years, for me, non event. Fair bit of the trip there and home as well. Bikes at the end are at the Peterborough Motor Cycle Museum. Great place to spend a cpl hours.

Great montage Dave! I love the footage of screwing the screws in to hold the awning up. Amazing!

Thanx Jon. The salt has a soft coating of around 10 mm then gets rock hard. Well thats what its like on a good year. Thats an 18 volt drill with 75 mm tec screws.

There is a pic of the RZ in there. Its the only one that I took.

Dave

This is the RZ350 that ran in Production 350 Class at this year's Speedweek in OZ .... set the Record at 119.136mph ...... as far as I know it was stock ..... Production Class does allow mods but the external appearance must be Standard .... can't even change Brake/Clutch Levers .....

Finally back in the loop after a less than ideal Speedweek for me personally .... But the Event itself was the best I have been to ....

The Salt was as good as it can get and there was lot's of Records and PBs set ...

I had an Electrical Gremlin but I did run two passes and reset the Record with a 121.147mph in the 250cc No Fairing Modified Petrol/Gasoline Class M-G-250 ...

Image

For all those on this Forum here is my Bike of the Meet ...

Ces on his Kenny Roberts Replica Yamaha TZ750 Flat Tracker .... it ran faultlessly and eventually went 135.318mph .... :smt023
