Having hardly recovered from 7 hours of dragging my camera gear around the TT Circuit of Assen on Saturday and a round on my roadbike on Sunday morning (with heavy headwinds), I rode to Eext on Sunday afternoon dragging camera gear with me again to see some more mechanical masterpieces, but these only had two wheels each (or three): the Historic Motor GP in Eext!
Last year I went to my first historical race in Eext, a fantastic event in the town of Eext with a few days of training, demo-racing and some actual racing with old motorbikes and sidecar-motors. It’s an annual event and so I had to be there again this year, it’s a blast!
Back in the day when men were real men and motorbikes were… killing machines on two wheels motor-racers were a special breed of men. With far less regulations for the races, the motorbikes really were far more dangerous and louder than modern day bikes. And they were prettier to look at. So it’s a good thing that Eext held a streetrace with these old machines, driven by old (but young at heart) racers.
