I went intending to watch and ended up racing

Tonight I went to the track intending to watch and hoping to get there early enough to take a few "just for fun laps" and ended up buying a day lisence and racing. I'm hooked.

Hey great stuff! Which track was it, and what events did you ride. Come on, give us a poper first-time race report - even if you lasted 3 laps before going out the back, we want to hear about it

I took part in Australian Pursuit, Win and out, a 10 lap scatch race. I got out on the Win and out because my chain was real loose after switching out wheels and I got freaked out.
