welcome to the april edition of scootering

I had my mind on costs recently, mostly because I’m attempting to put all my recently accumulated knowledge on paint spraying into effect. The subject matter is my 1969 GP125 and I’m now trying to practise what I preach. The ‘guide to painting’ series we ran was well received, and I encouraged readers to give it a go, so now I’m having a crack myself. Anyone who’s done a full restoration will know just how easy it is to let costs run away with you when you want to fit all the newest and shiniest bits.

scooters come to santa pod

Whether you ride a classic geared scooter, or a modern auto, Race, Rock ‘n’ Ride should provide you with the perfect opportunity to see how fast you can go down the Santa Pod sprint track.

You can even visit the scooter pits, to see all the scooters close-up and maybe get a chance to chat with the owners about their individual machines. Supported by both Classic Scooterist and Scootering magazines, the scooter paddock area will be controlled by the scooter sprint gurus who run the 100mphscooter club; they will also be coordinating the scooter entries.

Steve is raising money for the charity Healing Little Hearts which provides free heart surgery in countries without a developed health service, saving the lives of babies and young children with life-threatening heart problems. Steve says: “Last year I did the four cardinal points of mainland UK but this time the challenge will be much harder, really pushing the limits of the Tuk Tuk which has a max speed of 40mph.” If any scooter clubs or individuals fancy riding alongside for any part of the journey your…
