Motorcycle Races, Shannonville, (pic heavy)


Sunday was a great day at the races. Four of us rode 800kms round trip from London to the Shannonville Motorsport Park for the Mopar CSBK Superbike Championship Series start.

Our bikes: Two Honda ST1300s, a KLR, and - of course - my Versys. The KLR pilot rode 2 up with his 13 year old daughter. She had a great time and not a single complaint despite doing 800 highway kms on the tail of a dirt bike with only one break stop each way. Trooper.




In the pits:






From the Honda CBR250R Series National, Round 2:





It wasn't until the podium after the race that I realized these 250 riders were teenagers. How cool would that be at 14?



F.A.S.T. is the racing school available at Shannonville. Someday...




Walking around the park at lunch, saw the type of golfcart you see at racetracks, and Honda CBX inline 6. Cool.





From the Hindle Exhaust Pro Sport Bike and the Inside Motorcycles Amateur Sportbike:










Always trust your cape.

Cool photos! There were nice chicks there too.

I was there in 1988 or 1989 when a black Kawasaki GPX 750 Ninja was absolutely obliterating all the competition.
