Mach1 Racing in the USCRA

Up till now Pete Talabach said much about his sidecar. mostly because I of the love hate relationship he has with the rig and the fact that the motor is busted AGAIN but to be the rig was the product of many years of his old Yamaha rig. Doing on as many other rigs as he and the resulting design is beautiful and and is doubt the best handling rig Pete have ever The motor has great power and unbelievable, BUT. it turns out it is a lot easier to make a Vincent run reliably on the street than it is to it a reliable racer said Were it not for some heavy from my wife I would not have chosen a Vincent for or any Brit motor for that however, with that said. when it runs it is awesome

  I first racing when I was 14. Little did know, go-karts where the beginning. If you count racing airplanes it was earlier then

I raced go-karts for a few years some success. but sadly I was too to become a top tier driver. the time that I realized I also discovered motorcycles

Pete and his brother had decided to a Yetman framed sportster by gas dragster. The dragster did pretty considering they were a of teenagers with no money. of the lack of money, My brother and i went to any national events, we were within a couple of of a second of the national record for the running at our local strip. was no small feet by any means.

Pete then moved to for a couple years. It’s in the where He did some desert This style of racing was fun but I terribly good at it; So Peter wrenching for a speedway rider.

I was a lot at that and my rider podiumed regularly. Later on I met with Collins. There I worked time prepping class C bikes at Ascot Park. as you probably know was also in drag racing. Peter was him when he won his class at the Irwindale nationals in 1970.

He was on a 883cc Honda four. An note about this is about 3 weeks before the Russ was discussing the exhaust me and he made the observation that in cars did not have 4 pipe system. They had 4into 1 or 4 2 into1 headers.

Still with Russ, About two later the Honda had what I was the first header ever on a cylinder bike. The part job with Russ worked out to be beneficial in that aspect.

Pete took a 25 year it was time to establish a business and importantly, to provide for my family a house to raise my kids in. He get back into racing he was under heavy pressure his wife no less. She wanted to go sidecar racing.

Ths is the time we got involved with the we started here in 1996. bought the Yard Waste a guy in Conn. This was Andrew first effort to which made a number of mods to the but to there dismay they handled really well. the rig was quite reliable though and raced it for many years.

built a 250 Ducati for my wife to around the same time In the process engendered some in my friend David Tatlock. bought a 350 Ducati and recruited to prep it and Greg Nichols to it.

David, Greg and Myself with Brian Carroll Somma, (who incidentally up with the name) was the original 1 team.

  Mach1 fantastically successful. they had won races and championships beating the of Team Obsolete, Team and others of that caliber. In except for the odd mechanical failure I recall ever getting when we ran in class. Although, we got beaten in the bump class. it was that often.

  When life and concerns brought that to an end, I recruited Zack to ride my Ducati. Zack was fast on the bike and helped develop the brakes and suspension to an higher level. Although only rode for me for a couple he won a lot of races beating the likes of Roper and other top level  so for a short while, Peter and Denise were 1 racing.

Our sidecars, as well as Brian and Denise on solos. It was that time Rabbie into the picture.

  approached Peter asking him to a formula CB bike. Pete to build the bike for Rabbie. so piloted the bike and did so quite with it, but when racing AHRMA Rabbie had to race 350 with it.

That class allows engine mods and the limited of the formula CB motor meant or 4ths at the very best. dictated a modified motor so I the first version of the current and although we are on version 4.0 right now has been out front right the very first. I probably do not tell you how many regional and championships Rabbie has won on that but the most significant for me was the win at Daytona in 08.

made a number of try’s his Ducati and for one reason or another he was successful. The worst time was 97 on the last lap in 1st place leading the Beale Benelli four and the Obsolete 7R. Our ignition pickup and they DNFed.

 We did to get it fixed in time to make the 500 race. Greg finished in 5th two MVs as well as Todd on his Honda and Honda. Mach1 was the first

Not bad on a horsepower track like

  To this very Team Mach1 continues to very successful seasons. Rabbie Christina, and Spin the Pete Talabach designs, are still winning races. a testament of the talents of Pete and the Mach1 team
