UPDATE. My first event that was cancelled MANY time is now Officially on the 17th of September. Lets hope nothing happens to me then.....
Other news, I am planning on going to see if I can participate in the "Guidon D'" in Bercy, PAris next year. Depending on how I go in the racing in Australia, I will be arranging a few mags to provide me the sponsorship necessary to race there. I can get there, but I will need the assistance in getting a bike.
See you all soon.

I have been and will run road race tires. Not grooved slicks as I personally dont see the real benefit. I have tried a number of wet weather tires including: Avon, Bridestone and Pirelli. They work great in the wet and OK on the dirt. But, when the track gets dry, there is not enough lean angle.
Thus, for this first event, I will be running 207GP front and Dunlop 150/50 rears. Cant remember the name? 17" wheels front and back.
As far as the dirt component, I am not concerned, it is all a matter of sliding into the corner and using the natural ruts as a launching pad if you know what I mean.

Not a problem. You would not be imposing. The more people that are there the better for the sport.
If you are interested, you are more than welcome to ride up with me.
