Lake Perkolilli Red Dust Revival: September 12-16 2019 + PIX

Postby bowewilson@gmail.com » Sun Feb 24, 2019 1:32 pm

This event is on this year (I think Cookie posted something about this a while back but I could not find it) September 12 through 15.
Lake Perkolilli is about 60k NW of Kalgoorlie.
They are saying there will be about 100 cars and bikes racing, the Thursday and Friday are qualifying days.
I plan to take 4 wheels and and spend 5 days there.
It is a circuit around the lakes edge, racing has been happening here for over 100 years, particularly between the first and second world wars
Maybe someone could put this on the club calendar!

Most problems can be solved with a suitable application of throttle!

Wow, what an amazing turnout and location, a great time was had by all, photos will be posted on the Private forum in due course.

Bumped into several long term club members, whom we have not seen recently.

Thank you to Brian/5 and brains trust via phone over the weekend, when the bike was playing up (water in my fuel....).
