Nice! This is awesome.

The idea of my body being inches away from a solid wall at a full lean scares me to death. I prefer a niiicceeee long run-off.

I always thought it looked like covering a cheese grater with tissue paper.

Catch the World Touring Car race too, if you get a chance. Great stuff.

Sadly, two guys died this year. A rider from Portugal and a driver from HK. RIP. I was there quite a few years and never saw a casualty.

A HUGE thank you to my 2014 sponsors:, Fast Line Race Tire, Galfer, Vortex, Sidi Boots, LP Racing,, XT Racing. Come race at Miller with
