those fans love them some Roby Gordone!
Agree they certainly do! Love the fan videos
and at 7:42
So the Minis this year are clearly not Mini based. Any links to what they are?
I'm sure they're as proprietary as any Racecar. Custom Chromoly, fiberglass or carbon body etc...From what I understand the CEO of BMW's kid runs the program. Fairly large budget to make whatever he wants I imagine.
Only PeterPacker and Carlos have the new looking "Minis" Romo and the rest have the old style
Brabec leading the rally overall for motos still. This is great news...
Blade looking good so far; a good amount quicker to WP2 compared to the guys in front of him
Little bit off topic but is anybody on here know how to get ahold of Shawn cook cuz I could sure use some more speed and he's my only distributor in Northern California that I know of
