Concrete Starting tips???

7 posts in this topic

A local track installed a concrete starting line. I am having a lot of wheel spin problems and therefore lousy starts. Does anyone have some good tips for this? I was thinking of doing a 3rd gear start. I practiced it once and it seemed fast.

Thanks,

Jay

Ego,

Thanks so much, that is a great article!!! I am going to ride a Loretta Lynn's regional at this track with possibly 40 riders on the gate so this will be a big help! The start will be very important.

Thanks again!

Jay

I grew up racing at Soutwick, the trick is not to just pop the clutch, in 1 smooth motionout with the clutch and turn on the gas, when your off the concrete then hammer hard. It has always worked for me , but you will have practice to see what is the best for you.

Good Luck
