it was a kick ass weekend. as in, i kicked arrons ass everytime we were on the track.

woohoo!!

actually we had a great time and if aaron had an equally fast bike, i think we would have both come home in casts. we had a great time. i hadnt felt like going fast all season really. especially after june. but that track makes you want to ride fast. i took it easy though and we had a great time dicing and just passing and drafting and goofing off. thanks for a fun weekend aaron. it was cool to see you again. and jeremy, i wish you were there. we could have had alot fun at that track. plan on comming down in the spring.

i thihk aaron gives the best race reports, so i'll let him fill everyone in on how it all went. we had fun and evertone came home in one piece. except for aarons van wheel bearings.

Donald - Very possible.

I started out the trip on time well prepared... some things are just not meant to be. I drove 7.5 hrs to W.V. and was there by 7pm ish and had plenty of time to get some food and some other items with plenty of time for sleep. Here's what happens when you have plenty of time and you go to get grociers for the following race day.



Anyway... Summit Point is a great track and has great people. It's my track away from home. I ran the B50 in V2 which I didn't stand a chance but the bike is getting closer to how I want it to run. I ran the 250 race on the bone stock Honda 175 and Joe ran the 500 race on his Honda 350 which ran at the same time. Joe lagged in the 500 on the straights for a absolutely incredible time of dicing with me in the corners, thanks Joe. I was at the same time chasing down a guy on a Bultaco 250 when he had some bike issues and missed turn one. Put me in third and a 5th for Joe in his race. Joe was learning the track and I was trying learn how Roper defied physics on most corners while lapping me what sweemed to be more than once a race on the Aermacchi.

The afternoon had showed signs of rain with some sprinkles so I opted not to race the Honda 175 in the 350gp where it had no speed and I'd be forced to run it hard in to corners to try and beat Joe. Chris Marshall loaned me his 1964 Honda 250 for the 350gp which seemed more promising than my bike. I will have to say his bike handled far better than most bikes I've ridden and was a very well prepared bike. I will say the bike was not nearly as fast as I predicted. Chris rides the paints off that bike and my lap times where no where near his. Anyway, I spent a few laps chasing down Joe and then Joe and I swapped spit... what? Just seeing if your paying attention. Joe and I swapped lead positions a few times but couldn't get by an RD that was lightning down the straight. All in all after a great run back and forth with Joe he passed me coming out of the last corner and beat me twice in one day. Joe mark that one in your calendar.

Chris M. thanks for the scoot.

its not worth marking. like you, i dont consider it a fair win unless we are on equal bikes. i should have beaten you. although i should have beaten marshall for the same reasons but i cant. id really like to get behind you on the b50 though. just to see what it'll do. it was great fun. im still smiling about it! i cant wait til spring!

chris marshall is insanely fast huh?? made you look like you were blind or something. i just dont know how those guys do it.

nice pics there. your bike never looked so good.
