First time out with the new camera. Couple random clips from over last weekends race at Grattan Raceway up in Michigan. Has to be one of the best tracks in North America, period. Tons of elevation change as well as banked, off camber and blind corners. The camera doesn't really do it justice Wink

There are always multiple classes on track at any given time, hence the differing chassis you see. This will be my second year running the 100cc Yamaha Sportsman Sprint class. Just wanted to show you guys what fun you're missing.

That's definitely cool. How fast are you going down that long straight?

Runs about 92 MPH at Grattan with the elevation gain, hit 97 at VIR last year without any draft Twisted Evil As you might guess, with my head just 14" off the ground, that feels pretty darn quick.

Finally got to reading Embarassed Clutch comes in about 10,000 RPM and we top out just north of 14,000.  Gotta love them two cycles.  Entire track was recently repaved (in stages over two years) and is way smoother than before.  Before the repaving, Grattan is the only track I've been to that I managed to bend a rim by rolling over a nasty bump on cold, low PSI tires.  Not sure what the large patches of sealer are, but the grip level sure varies from the actual pavement.

Next installment is from the most recent race at my home track, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course I love you  This is from Race 1 on Saturday, my class leaving the LeMans style start on the third flag.  Turn 1 corner workers sign on the cool down lap is priceless.

Would have made the corner worker sign the new avatar but for no frames where I could get the whole thing without the lens-edge-blur.

My two thoughts: I gotta get even more less fat, because that looks like too much fun not to be doing, and also, recognize and immediately recalled Mid-Ohio as an amazing racetrack when the Skip ran there last season. Do want more.
