Weedons Ross Rd Classic Trial.
Due to high water level at the Loburn venue, the trial was rescheduled to be run at Waimak river (weedons ross road).A well set out 8 sections by Brent and Shirley , the ground was perfect and unaffected by the downpour the previous days, Magic.
A few enjoyable beers were downed at the Yaldy, when in hobbled a smiling Mr Gardener on his crutches, still on the pain killers after the knee opp', ale was not drank, but he still managed his basket of chips.

A question from one of the clan who is building a C15 special, was wondering what pistons are available to make a big bore version. From what I can gather a bonneville 650 piston with a shortened skirt will give you 277cc (71 bore x 70 stroke). But, I'm sure there's plenty of you classic guys out there on the interweb who can elaborate on other options as we have an inkling that jap pistons can be made to work too. Any help on that, please send to Will here at Cust GP.
Cheers Trev
