Speeds in motor pacing

In the motor pacing event at the SuperDrome on Wednesday, the A-Graders were doing about 50 kph (each lap approximately 18 secs).
At Edwardstown the A-Graders were doing about 47 kph (each lap approximately 37 secs) - 1 lap at Edwardstown is 485 metres.

I reckon David's motorbike's speedo is off, I didn't think I was going that fast! :lol: :lol: :lol:
the ideal number of bikes is one more than you currently have

I did not time many laps at Edwardstown - perhaps I just timed timed the fastest ones there.
However, I think 18 seconds was a resaonably consistent lap time at the SuperDrome

Guys
I cannot match your technology!
1 I timed a lap with a stopwatch
2 I asked Cathy B the perimeter of the Edwardstown track (she said 485 metres)
3 I used arithmetic ie multiplication and division.
