For most months in the summer, a local driving course is opened up to MMSC RiderCoaches to ride. It is a fun time riding and chatting with other coaches from the area. The course is at DCTC in the south metro. It is a one mile long driving course with about 17 corners depending on how it is configured.
The last one for 2013 was a few weeks ago in September. Due to conflicting schedules, I haven’t made many this year. This was my first of 2013, so despite some spitting rain, I went.
There weren’t many others that showed up. I’m guessing due to the weather. I think we had less than ten people. There were some interesting bikes though.
Several guys tailored older bikes they had restored to the track to play with them.
This two-stroke race bike above was pretty impressive. I tried to make a short vid of it, but it didn’t turn out.
The few laps I did were enjoyable. It was nice to burn off some energy in a safe environment. The track started getting greasy with the rain, and I still had to ride home. No room for crashing by leaning over too far. I had a nice time, but didn’t run many laps.
I’m looking forward to the first event in 2014.
