Viking Run & Fun 4 / Kala dirt track races, June 2010
Whow, what can I say having finally reached home after this weekends ride. I have joined the Viking Run & Fun for the first time, what an event. 1`st off all those great people, a load of nice bikes and cars both customs, race, rod, bob and chops and finally the Kala race track where the event takes place, its as made for an event like this.
Is there anything like racing? The sound of a motor at full throttle, the smell of oil and gas, the dirt in the air getting at you from the track and then the view off the riders giving all to get those laps finnished at their best time ever, to win! If you ever raced you know as soon as your out there its all about winning and your horns will grow, helmet or not.
When there where no racing action the track speakers gave you the rockabilly music needed and additionally the sun was present all trough the event.
Will try to upload some footage that can give an idea to the one not there what its all about at Kala`s,
Myself, Stig, Ronald, Vegard & Ronald.
