Default oOple Invernational 2014 - 8th-10th August


The 2014 oOple Invernational will take place from Friday 8th August to Sunday 10th August. Friday is free practice and optional. The race has grown bigger and better every year with the past two years on the fantastic RHRdirt track at Robinhood Raceway - and again we'll use the dirt track (weather permitting) which has driven wheels using proline holeshots and undriven as any proline for control tyres. Entries will open soon and we aim to concentrate on overseas and those that need to book early as we go through the entries.

The 2014 Invernational date has been out a while but the guys have been screaming at me to announce it properly so I've had two cans of relentless (sugar free) and knocked up a logo (for the Tshirts really)

Visit www.ooplerace.com - To be updated with the 2014 information but essential information such as location, local amenities should be correct.

Why I thank you my fellow night rider. almost 4am. I've got no sleep in me - I'm listening to music loud as balls and feeling good for a change. NO PAIN! Praise Odin.

Been racing tonight and too much (sugar free) red bull. gone past tired after a busy week.

great no pain. Still rocking the reverse bra?

we need a quadcopter fpv race, through rings of fire.
talking of which, I have my quadcopter ring of fire vid from last year. its a bit wobbly as I chipped a prop 5mins before it.

haha, no mate I gave up on it and looked on youtube for shoulder exercises. First one I looked at was some overworked guy but a physio who said pretty much exactly the same as I had - people working their chest and not balancing it with (much harder to figure out how to do) rear deltoid working.

Student sorted me out - after a surgeon wrongly diagnosed me. no drugs this week at all, and no real pain. Slightly sore from working muscles I never knew I had is all.

I was gonna get a TBS but they changed their policy in the 4 month conversation I've been having with them so I don't think I'll get one now. My hex is bigger than the ring of fire - what do I do?

Good stuff. what do surgeons know anyway, other than making sure they get paid?

this is what you do:

It was related to using it for filming and using their logo among other stuff.

Please mention this on the entry form - the event is 2.5 times over subscribed usually - meaning 450 ish entries. We will do our best to let everyone have a go - but you know what it must be like with so many wanting to come race.

The american idea of 700 entrants and qualifying at 2am etc - is just crap money making. Yeah it's big - so what. QC.

As far as I know - we clash with the end of the 8th rallyX Euros - meaning we might well not have the likes of hupo/Cragg/Bloomers/Lee Martin/Doughty etc. Making a bit more room

We can work something there boss.

To get in The Beer Race you need to get in some crazy costume, if alcohol is off your list we'll fill you full of Rola-Cola or Kaliber.
