TRACK TUNE​

THEMANBEHIND

 . Track tune has been operating for the past 24 years and is an owner operator business so all work is carried out by the owner of the business , I have always strived for a high standard of workmanship ,and always put the customers best interest first. We have been involved in racing since the 1980s , racing an R5 and then a Kawasaki Mac 3 for a number of years in Post Classic and other classes ,with  riders like Mark Jackson , Wayne Gardner ,Mick Doohan ,Micheal Dawson as my mentors i must say i was lucky  .

In the 1990s I was involved in flat track and in 1993 our riders took out all the Qld and Australian title's in a number of classes , later in the 90's I moved back into road racing having the pleasure of working with Craig Coxell ,Jay Taylor and Brenden Clark as young and up and coming riders, and setting up 600 super sports and Super bikes ,we also competed in 6hr events as well as the last meeting at Bathurst with a Super bike  .

In 2003 helped Chris finch with his GP250 and in 2004 i helped Chris in the 600/1000 class with a 2000 model R6, taking out the the local series at QR , and braking the B circuit record as well ,at the same time setting up and competing in pocket bike racing  .  I also set up and competed in the 2010 24hr scooter race on the gold coast coming 2nd over all in the std class on a Baroni scooter ,so yes I have either ridden and or set up every thing from pocket bikes to Super bikes ,having success at local and national levels of racing and with 40 years of road riding experience in general riding, motorcycle courier work and racing both dirt and road , it has given me a good understanding of what motorcycle riding at all levels is about and what motorcycle/scooter owners different needs are .With a full sponsorship deal from Oz Scooters Direct in 2010 I started racing scooters at Lakeside ,taking an over all 2nd in the 2010 summer series with our worked up 50cc 4 stroke ,and later in the year started winning races with the 150ss , my daughter Sam and my son Reece taking it up as well and also getting bikes sponsored to them by Rick from Oz Scooters as well . I am focusing on my  pre-purchase inspections ,I have also started back into race and ride day set ups , working with JB from Streetwise  and I have also taken on a promising young lady that started with us about 14 mths ago and has already completed 2 track days ,and now putting together her first dedicated track bike for racing  , With us motorcycles are our passion not just another job , it doesn't matter to me  how big or how small your bike is ,if you commute to and from work ,ride on weekends or go flat out on the track , I always show the same attention to detail no matter what the bike is or what brand it is ,so you can be assured that you and your motorcycle  are in good hands .
