That is a very cool shot on the track and in the paddock. Old Triumph, new Ducati-nice. Gotta get my stuff together for next year. Nice job GP!

Finally done with the last of the lockwiring (safety wire).

I busted the bank and spent big bucks on the oil catch pan...

So whats in the pan? Lasagna? Ribs? LOL! (Waht do you put inthere to absorb any potential leaking oil?)

Nice job on the bike, Grandpaul... Best of luck in your first race! Wish I could come down and root you on.

This Saturday I race my last one of the year. A little county fair shorttrack... I sure hate to see it end, but it's been a fun first year racing! Time for me to think about "go faster" plans for this winter's tinkering. Unless I get the bug real bad and come down to Oklahoma for some indoor "full-contact" shorttrack! eek

Some of the other more experienced AHRMA racers may chime in here, but I think you may want to rethink your bellypan. While the AHRMA rulebook leaves things a bit vague with "All oil containment systems are subject to approval by technical inspection." Here locally and elsewhere 'turkey pans' are strictly forbidden. The argument being that they are too flimsy and weak. A connecting rod or other internal bit exiting the crankcase will easily pass through them. They can also be easily torn if snagged while unloading the bike from the trailer. I raced last weekend at Miller and don't recall seeing a single one of these tinfoil type pans. However, I did see at least a couple of the heavier and more durable 'cake' pans. The Betty Crocker 13" X 9" would probably fit the Triumph pretty well. Maybe the wife has a spare?

As it happens, that's EXACTLY the type cake pan I used, passed tech all 3 days.
