Grattan Motorcycle Lap Record?

Anyone know the fastest lap time on 2 wheels at Grattan?

I think its in the mid 1:20s. Like a 1:25 or something. Thats just flat out flying.

The lap records on the grattan web site are about 5 years old.

Last time we were there, the guy that held the record for counter-clockwise was there, and he was going into the bowl at a ridiculous rate of speed.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Big horsepower doesn't mean jackshit on that race track I can tell you that rite now. There was a guy on a supermoto prepped YZF450 out there last year flying. He was running mid to low 1:30s.

I have the same question asked on the wera board. Those guys should know for sure what it is.

clockwise i know Larry Denning, Jamie Hanshaw, and Matt Furtek were all running 1:20.??? on average with GLRRA. one of them may have even cracked a 19 but not sure

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

I think it was repaved a few years ago but it's got patch/sealer on each corner now like in the past. Unless they make a track out of cement it's going to be a problem. Maybe if someone was smart they would use sl;sightly larger filler rocks like Jennings.

Im looking for a 600 laptime for gingerman too.
