The Lincoln Flume

The Flume

When: Sunday 12th July 2015

Where: Flaxengate, Lincoln

Flaxengate-water-slide - Lincoln Flume 2015

The Lincoln Flume is based on a concept called Park and Slide developed by artist Luke Jerram. It is described as:

“a simple architectural intervention and a playful response to the urban landscape”

The location for the Lincoln Flume water slide has been selected and Flaxengate is the venue of choice for the 90m long slip and slide!

Ticket holders will slide down a 90m long tarpaulin slide, dowsed with soapy water on an inflatable li-lo and the gradient of Flaxengate will provide an exhilarating ride generating expected speeds of over 11mph. There are car parks nearby and plenty of room for spectators.

We will be based at Café Portico along with Sim and our joint side project – our very own wood fired pizza oven housed inside an authentic Italian Piaggio Ape!

Come and join in with the fun and get a slice of the action – we look forward to see you there 🙂

Cadwell Park 80th Anniversary – A Beautiful Track









What a weekend!

Adam had a great time at Cadwell Park on Friday for the Classic Bike Burn-Up Track Day – the first time the 851 has been on track and she did a grand job, didn’t miss a beat!

Sunday’s events were equally as entertaining with beautiful weather that really made some beautiful motorcycles and cars shine in all their glory…many thanks to Classic Bike Track Days and Cadwell Park for their efforts.

Ride Out: Spring Cup TT Warm up at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough

13th April – Meeting from 7:00am at Cafe Portico, departing 8:00am prompt

First ride out of the season in conjunction with Cafe Portico. Route map will be posted within the next few days. If you are coming along please make sure that you arrive fully fueled and ready to go as we will not be able to wait. We will be heading to Oliver’s Mount to spend the day watching the first road racing meet of the season after which you can make your own way home or join the group for the ride back to Lincoln. Entry to Oliver’s Mount for this event is £20.

With the top riders desperate to try out their new bikes, and others needing signatures for their mountain course licences, to enable them to compete in the Isle of Man, the first “Real Road Race” of the season promises to produce some excellent racing.

William Dunlop and Guy Martin out on the latest Tyco Suzuki’s, Conor Cummings making a welcome return to the Mount, and Ryan Farquhar coming out of retirement to prepare for his TT come back, all in all this meeting should produce racing equally as good as the 2013 Gold Cup.

The up and coming riders are all entered, including James Cowton, Dean Harrison, Ivan Lintin, Phil Harvey, Daley Mathison, Dan Frear and James Neesom, plus a couple of the older riders, Davy Morgan from Ireland and Paul Owen from Wales, plus Mick and Mark Goodings from Doncaster.

With this tremendous entry, and another week to go before entries close the meeting looks like being another great success for the Auto 66 Racing.
