Off Season Video Reminder: Why We Do It

sidecars racing

I just put together a quick clip of myself and Matt Blank chasing after the #69 sidecar of Kelly Bell and Johnny Glover last summer during the MotoAmerica races at the Utah Motorsports Campus.

Fellow Racers probably know that feeling of being about as fast as the person in front of you but they are using the same line as you. When you get too close, you have to lift in the areas you are faster, but in the areas they are quicker you fall behind. It takes a lot of planning when speeds are near equal.

But it’s always fun racing against someone as opposed to running by yourself. Both are fun mind you, but last-lap chases like this are what keep me day-dreaming about the track.
