    Vintage Celebration?

    Since there's nothing happening around here in May I was thinking of heading to NH to do some racing at the Vintage Celebration. Is it worth the trip from Baltimore?

    i love v.c.! we won't be attending as casey graduates that weekend. she's bummed, i'm bummed.....have fun!

    oil on the track is a common concern. i love the cars, bikes, sidecars, and three day weekend.

    take lots of pictures!

    BJ,
    It's a great event, cool to see all of the bikes, cars and sidecars. ALL VINTAGE. Last year it rained and we all made the best of it, here is a link to a few of the photos I shot from last year:

    just to give you an idea.
    Also, Beth has a ton of photos up from last year on her site:

    Between the two you'll get the gist of the event.

    I'm waiting for the last minute to decide. If the weather forecast looks good on Thursday...then I'll head out. I have a good gut feeling about the weather this year...we've had a ton of percipation this winter, and a wet spring so far. I think the sun will bust out big time around the time of the event.
    When the weather is nice, it's a cool first event for me...lots of time to tune the bikes between races. And the three day thing is cool.

    I need to send in my registration soon, better grid positions too. I really don't want us to lose another date because of lack of participation. I do think that the track conditions are a genuine concern, as they have been and we should all be diligent to monitor and alert race directors to violators. As a former spectator, this was always one of my favorite events to attend due to the variety of machinery, sights and sounds.

    Sunny and 70 degrees sounds good, but if it's wet maybe the Wankers can burn a few more tents in the infield to dry things out.

    For some reason I'm thinking the same thing.

    Yeah, last year was the year the track left the infield sprinklers on all weekend. Normally it never rains in NH.
