Vintage Motorcycle Racing

June 16, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The warm weather is finally in first gear and with it we have the kickoff race of the Vintage Motorcycle Road Racers event at the Shannonville race track. It was an awesome day of racing with some of the racers pushing themselves too hard which resulted in a sidecar falloff and a nasty accident at the end of the straightaway.

Each VRRA race is full of bikes with an excellent racing pedigree. Featured here is the venerable Yamaha TZ250. The TZ250 was produced by Yamaha from 1973 to 1982 and was raced by the legendary racer Kenny Roberts to victory in 1978. In the Shannonvile VRRA round we see a TZ250 being pushed to it's limit.
