Round two at Infineon was my best weekend so far, finishing 2nd in F40 and back-to-back wins in both 450SB and 500T.
We signed up for Friday practice with PTT, which turned out to be a waste of time. The groups were crowded with street riders, and with AFM riders out there trying to get their scorch on, the carnage was massive. Every session was either red-flagged or cut short due to pile-ups. I don’t understand why track day providers don’t warn their customers when dates are preceding and AFM event.
Wow! Great weekend at AFM! Even though on Sunday I was not only slightly hung over, but I was TOTALLY dehydrated from not having drinken enough water on Saturday. That’ll teach me! Ugh!
Anyhow, Toe, Matt, and Max were all on hand for shooting while my roomie John took the grunt work and sorted all weekend. They all totally kicked serious ass and I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for having such awesome friends. Thanks you guys!
I also wanted to mention Eric Arnold…he took a really bad fall right off the first race start on Sunday morning and was airlifted out. He’s going to heal up, eventually, but having been in a similar situation, I just wanted to send a shout out and wish you the best on a speedy recovery. Hope you don’t hurt too much or for too long, brother!
I’ve posted up some sample shots in the usual place; seppes.com/Motorcycles …some interesting shots this weekend for sure! All the pics ARE up on 4theriders/main.php now too though, in case you’re wondering. :D
Man, what a day… 4theriders went down earlier this morning… server crashed or something… all I know is that I’ve spent the whole freggin day migrating everything over to a new server/host… and I’m still not done.
It’s going to be a few days before I get all the thumbnails loaded up and stuff. There’s about 9GB of tiny images in all. Sorry folk! Quite frankly, I’m a bit annoyed myself.
So, I’ll be running around like mad starting Friday…headed down to Salinas for some flat track stuff. Sunday, I’ll be at Infineon for some Zoom Zoom action… then Monday and Tuesday will be back to back open trackdays at Thunderhill with Francis and Kneeriders! Whoo hooooo! I love nothing more than open trackday formats.
I’m really not looking all that forward to all the driving I’ll be doing though. I drive almost a billion miles per month, I swear.
In other news; I think I’m nearing being ready making this blog actually live. Right now I’ve just been kinda writing to myself about nothing. Hehe.
Anyhow, here’s a pic I took the day before yesterday that I’m rather pleased with….
