PE CLASSIC Bike Racing will hold a Motorcycle Track Day at the Aldo Scribante circuit on Sunday, May 24.

As well as the usual classes of classic and historic motorcycles, breakfast runners and current superbikes, the Honda NSF 100 Training motorcycles for eight- to 14-year-olds will do demonstration rides at the circuit.

For the first time, there will also be a safety talk and track time for high school teenagers who ride their motorcycles or scooters to school. “PE Classic Bike Racing has decided to do this safety programme for the school commuters because there is such a high rate of motorcycle accidents happening daily in Port Elizabeth.

“The teenagers will receive safety tips from the older, more experienced riders, and also have three 20-minute outings on the circuit, where the experienced riders will show them the racing lines, and give them a taste of what it is like to ride their motorcycles in a safe environment.”

The entry fee for the track day is R50 for school Commuter riders. They will need to bring their own motorcycle to the circuit, have an adult on hand to sign the indemnity form on their behalf, and also produce a valid driver’s licence.

They will need to wear long jeans, sneakers or boots, a shirt and a jacket, gloves and helmet, for safety reasons.

The cost for adult riders is R200 for the day. Registration will commence at 8am.

There will be an ambulance on duty until the end of the programme.

Spectators are welcome, free of charge.

There will be catering caravans, and a full bar and braai service in the clubhouse after the event, when all the bikers can get together and watch the UK round of the Superbike Championship. Inquiries can be made and entry forms can be obtained at peclassicbikeracing@gmail.com. – REPORTER
