      I love these 3 video's. I have them saved on my favorites. I can just really feel the era. And those were fast races. I watch em' and lose myself back into the bosom of the 80's....Then I have to come back to the future of 2011-yuck. (<Heck, that was almost poetic, lol.) Thanks for putting them up for all to see, now, tell us about it please.-

      I raced one of those events and actually led a lap or 2 before Marty blew by me, but that was on 4-wheels so maybe was '87.

      Think Steve Wright promoted it.

      Can't wait to watch the videos off of the work PC.

      I remember the track having such crazy jumps that there were a lot of racers wanting to boycott the event.

      May have a picture or 2 from it if I can dig them up.

      These 2 strokers are totally sick. I had a Suzuki RM 125 and that bike threw me like a rag doll. I could just image 250cc on 3 wheels. Anyone know where original film footage home made videos are on you tube from 1980's ? I think they were using VHS camcorders back then ? Anyway thank for posting these awesome vidz. A real treat.
