Elgin and I did a long weekend trip down to the Mid-Ohio Race Course in Lexington Ohio.
Taking the long route, we head down south from Buffalo across Upstate New York to Pennsylvania, parts of WV and from there West to Ohio.
Most remarkable roads on the way were certainly US-50 going West in PA and then Ohio 555/669/666 going North, great roads with a lot of twisties and not a lot of traffic as it was mid week.
We made camp early afternoon and watched some of the practise laps afterwards. It was my first visit of the Mid-Ohio Racetrak and I was fairly impressed with the shear size of it and the ease of access everwhere, even in the pits. Liked it!
Saturday morning greeted us with a heavy 30min downpour, it was all good from there on when it comes to weather.
We roamed around abit in the vendors area where I saw this Norton fairing I liked. It was attached to a bike that I didn't need so I only admired it and took pictures for my 70's Fairing Collection.
We sat down to watch some races ... did I say it was raining heavily in the moorning?
This guy was on a KTM motard and he was really smoking. During the race, he crashed, got up and still made it second. He was THE attraction of the day making the crowd cheer. And you could see that he was absolutely enjoying himself.
It was not until the afternoon that the track was dry enough for some real racing.
The next morning greeted us with georgeous wheather and the announcement that racing will be resumed at 10AM instead of 1PM which gave us time to watch some more of the non-vintage and sidecar races before we had to head home.
As usual, I got home in the wet. We were lucky that the T-storms didn't hit us too hard. All in all a memorable event.
