The latest page added to this blog is from a guest blogger. It is the story of Mike Hailwood’s Ducati victory in the Formula One TT race at the Isle of Man in 1978 from someone who was intimately involved. See the page VE. Hailwood, Ducati, & the TT, part 1 of 2.
It’s taken over a year but part two of the two-part survey of U.S. racetracks has been posted. Part one, you might remember, was on page VG. The Fall and Rise of West Coast Racing and covered tracks in the three west-coast states. Part two surveys the rest of the U.S. It’s on page VF. Other U.S. Racetracks.
I have finally finished and published the story of our trip to Birmingham, Alabama. It’s a bit longer than most of the stories in this blog, but it’s not to bad at about 2,000 words. Y0u can find it at the page titled VN. Barber Vintage Festival 2016.
There were times in racing that were magic – stuff that normally only happens in books or in the movies. There were also moments of magic that happened after my racing was over. A couple of those moments are described on the new page “WK. Not in Real Life.”
Dee and I picked up her son Russ and the three of us went to the Annual Barber Vintage Festival at the Barber Motorsport Park in Birmingham Alabama, October 9-11. We met some nice folks, some of them famous (or notorious), and saw some really cool motorcycles from today and from years gone by. See the whole story on the page “WN. Adventures in Alabama.”
