Bånn Gass #1 , classic motorcycle dirt track racing!

Bånn Gass #1, is/was a brand new local event, a brainchild of Morten with good help from C&G, members of The Rivals Scooter Club and NMK Kristiansand.



And what an event this became, this even if new and the fact that it is very hard to organize anything pulling crowds in the Southern of Norway.
Pit`s where filled up with enthusiasts from as far off as Oslo and Stavanger, old old bikes and not so old bikes where ready to race on the gravel track.
Top that with a couple of hundreds of spectators and many many motorcycle riders from all variations of the biker scene. Vintage bikes came, cafe racers, custom bikes and touring bikes, this was enjoyable for the lot.

We, the participants had the best time, friendship and "not too serious racing", wrenching and talking.

Enjoy a selection of pictures below from Bånn Gass #1.

Speed thrills on ice, the great race at Gjersjøen-Norway in 1924

A while back I wrote this article for NVMC`s magazine Sidevogna. The article tell the story about a motorcycle race held at the ice of lake Gjersjøen near our capitol Oslo. When I get time I will translate the text here to english for all to enjoy. Stay tuned!
