Training at Buttonwillow… on the mini-125

Yesterday we drove to Buttonwillow’s Kart track to train on the RS92. This year is important and we want to be as fast as possible. Two months ago, the frame on the bike cracked. Thankfully, Carlos Neves, from CN Racing, was able to fix it and get us back on track.

When we received it back from him, we decided to do a top-end on the bike when we discovered the plating on the cylinder was beginning to come off. I sent the cylinder to Millenium Technologies for replating and this was the first time we had it running.

Because the track was green, it was a little slippery, but his Pirelli Moto3 tires SC1 grip made up the difference.

Here is video of Anthony going through one of the corners.

BARF Racing Leathers in Action

Two weeks ago we went to Buttonwillow to prepare for the AFM race and to try out the new BARF racing leathers Helimot helped create.

The weather was great and Anthony loved the leathers (who wouldn’t?)

Thank you again to Bud and Helmut for their support.

Normally Anthony wears a safety vest, but for these photos we had him take it off. Anthony will continue to wear the vest throughout the season. Thank you

AFM Round #1 has been cancelled

Unfortunately, the weather in California chose to not cooperate with us this weekend and it forced AFM’s Round #1 to be cancelled.

Thankfully, the cancellation happened ahead of time, and not at the track, which we appreciate very much.

Because of this weather, we’re probably going to be stuck home this whole weekend.

Time to clean up the garage I guess.

Bodywork and 92cc cylinder are ready

Spent most of the day hanging out with sponsors, Carlos and Mike from CN racing and ACE graphics.

Carlos cleaned the 92cc cylinder. We got it back from millenium for re-plating. It should be ready for action by tomorrow.

Mike updated our number plates to meet the the AFM specs.

Since the AFM race at buttonwillow was cancelled, we need to wait until April to race.

Congratulations to Joey, Cameron and Elena on their results at Daytona. All are from NorCal and all are fast.

Anthony is now an Expert AFM racer

Anthony is very excited to be an Expert Racer in the AFM. At the February AFM board meeting, we petitioned that Anthony’s race license be upgrade to Expert status.

We listed Anthony’s WERA status (Expert), his race results and his laptimes. The AFM board was very receptive and approved Anthony’s license upgrade.

The first AFM race is this weekend at Buttonwillow. The weather does not seem to be cooperating… yet. Let’s hope for the best.
