Rotorua BMX has club nights every Wednesday. So yesterday I picked some things I liked over there. First of all Cambridge is having their club nights on Thursday, so it's good to have them in different days. Taking a part to race costs 2 NZ dollars (1,6 US $, 1,2 € or 10 swedish krona). In race we go 6 motos.. laps or what you call them. It used to be 4 motos and final, but now it's 4+2. It's pretty much.. atleast for older ones.
No one really cares who wins or anything like that. Well yesterday we had club champs so they count it, but normally no one cares. After the race everyone gets candies as a prize. There is about 10 candies in bag, but it's perfect. The smaller ones and also the older ones seems to desperately wait for the candies. Sort of I don't like that they give candies, but 10 candies is better than somekind of trophy. For kids seems to work eather one.
Often here is office and snack shop in the end of the finish line. There you can easily write down who were first etc.
Place for commentator is this small house on the top of second turn, if you can see it, because sun went already down.
