    Beautifull ! ! If a true bikers hart isn’t beating harder by the view of that film, than he isn’t a real biker…..

    IMOP what a super special film.. Can you imagine being on the side of the track like that… The sidecar race looked freaky…. Just a whole different time and place! VERY cool!!! Really special to see the real ‘old school’….. Did you look closely at the track? I thought the track was 99% perfect but the VID shows otherwise… look again at the big O’ holes between the boards Etc…. I guess going just over 100Mph would be OK but just think about bailing out on the rough and beaten wood…… OUCH ! Post this on You-Tube!

    I am a big fan of vintage racing, both auto an moto. I have a lot of film from this era of autos but none of bikes. This is fantastic to see, and as rare as it gets. Thanks for the heads up

    Wow, very cool- easy to see where the inspiration for Daytona Speedway came from……

    The other night we were here at the shop late, about 6 in the moring. I had pulled a 26 hour work day. Many of you know how that goes. At around 1 or so in the moring I was taking a break and pulled up the blog. Saw this post and loaded it up. Gathered the 5 or 6 of us here in the shop around the computer and watched this little bit-o-history.

    Damn, great little clip to watch and get some inspiration to keep plugging away on the project at hand. Those guys had the cliche, Balls That Klank! Just thinking about building the track, racing the track and surviving the track. None of those were small feats.

    Great stuff!

    I think the opening text should read either: In the late eighteen hundreds or in the early nineteen hundreds, not the late nineteen hundreds as that would be the 1990s.
