Gamma Racing Days

Last weekend the Gamma Racing Days were held on the TT Circuit of Assen. Starting on Friday there were events all weekend on and around the circuit. I went to see what was happening on Sunday afternoon.

Superbike Race 2 on Sunday

A bit more prepared I came earlier to the circuit on Sunday. A better cycling route so a bit less tired as cycling was all against the wind to the track. And well in time for the three main events. And it was sunny, what could possibly go wrong?

Superbike Race 1 on Saturday

I don’t know what brilliant idea is behind the new schedule of the Superbike races, but apparently there’s a race 1 on Saturday and a race 2 on Sunday now. Not my ideal setup, but what can you do? So without too much rest I was at the track today to shoot the first race of the weekend (and for me this year).

MXGP day 1 at TT Circuit of Assen

As a bit of an unexpected bonus and quite a surprise the TT Circuit banked a two year contract for the MXGP races. That is dirt bike races on the Circuit of Assen. That has to be something spectacular.

Historische Motor GP Eext

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!

Spettacolo Sportivo Alfa Romeo

When you’re a bit of an Alfa Romeo lover -an Alfista as it were- and you live near the TT Circuit of Assen, you have to visit the Alfa days held on the circuit. And I happen to be one so I prowled the circuit on Saturday when the “Spettacolo Sportivo Alfa Romeo” organized by SCARB was held.

Superbike 2015 on the TT Circuit of Assen

In the past years I’ve visited training days of the Superbike and TT in Assen, but not that many actual racing days. And I felt like going to see some real races again, so this year -with a weather forecast predicting a really good day- I opted for the Superbikes racing day.

Acceleration Day 2014

After two days filled with dreadful music around the TT Circuit of Assen (one ‘Back to the 80’s/90’s with David Hasselhoff, Samantha Fox, Rick Ashley, 2Unlimited and many more, the other a beerfest. Sounds good, but musically ‘enriched’ with Gerard Joling, Roy Donders and Danny Christian and there’s not enough beer in the world to make me like that) the Acceleration weekend ended with a day with actual races.
