    What I did today

    Hi guys,

    there was some drag races held at a friend's house today, was a organised event, but more just on a "for-fun" basis. more of a family event than anything else just thought i'd share some pics, here is a pic of the start line

    Re: What I did today

    quite a big turn up of people, excuse the litter(ruins the pic), was quite windy

    Re: What I did today

    just some for fun drags, ATV's racing each other

    here is a pic for you carlos some bikes that were there(i have no idea which kind of bike that one on the right is though )


    Re: What I did today

    Cool

    The one on the right a old Norton maybe

    Re: What I did today

    That looks like tons of fun Mike.. Thanks for the pics and videos.

    BTW, doesn't this road looks a bit narrow for a drag race?

    no prob ha! the runway is a little bit narrow compared to proper raceways, but we did fine, never felt that it was too narrow or uncomfortable at any point. remember this is literally in my friend's back yard(his house is about 50M away from the runway)

    here is a pic of my friend's SL racing someone from the start line, it isn't THAT narrow as what it seems in the videos
