'Hornet Class' Racing - The poor mans thrill
« on: January 10, 2008, 05:43:04 am »
I am passing on something I planned on doing this year.  I'm focusing my LIMITED finances on other dreams.  Hopefully one day I'll be able to race something more refined.  But I still think this looked like FUN!

If you ever get a chance to watch something like this, it's quite enjoyable. :gtg:  They race more than just ovals.  Unfortunately there aren't many videos out there to choose from.

In case you were wondering.

Nope it's not a rule.  It was just how everyone did it when it all began.

Locally it's a rainbow of sponsored cars.  I'll try and get some video for you this spring.

Yes very nice.

I just wish there would be something like that here at my place.
Norwegian regulations and all tax buisness would make even this series belonging to the high and welthy i guess.
I hate that everything is so damn expensive here.

Hmmmm i know i can find some local streetcar track though....
hang on.
