Classic race Nunspeet (Holland) 2012

I went to the Classic Race Demo in Nunspeet (the Netherlands) yesterday. In total I filled 16GB's with photo's.... Here's a very random selection for those who are interested:





























































I will need a LOT of time for the other photos since I have so many more events and shoots to process.

Enjoy!

That's what I like to see, none of this knees hanging out crap, just freezes everything solid! Knees against the tank so you can hang on, and using the toe on the ground to tell you when to hold it steady!

Thanks man, very cool.

Great photos!!!!

That's the kind of event I would like to see in U.S. - blasting through a picturesque town and cool old machines ridden by cool old guys like me- could stock classic bikes like a 70's BMW airhead have taken part or was it confined to race machines?


Thanks for the great fotos.....

He was by far the fastest (and loudest) of his class.


Major crash in his class too though, 7 bikes, right in front of me. 2 somersaulted. Amazingly, no one was hurt and only the modern follow up bike (to show the public the races have all passed) had serious damage. No clue what he was doing so close to the racers.

I take it this was a RACE not a parade ?
It's hard to believe the organizers would allow half helmets , pudding basin helmets and sunglasses for eye protection. I know historicly half helmets and pudding basins were worn, when nothing else was available , but this is now and if I'm to take the risks , I'll use the best available equipment to insure survivability.
Were there any half helmets or worse in the big crash you saw ?

BTW great shots !

The sidecar rider? With a moustache like that, he could ride butt-nekkid and strill be cool!

Brilliant to see loud smoky two-stroke race-bikes giving the finger to Euro-nannies - brilliant stuff!
Thanx for sharing!

Look again , I count seven different guys with half or pudding basins.
Style ? Yeah , I guess.
I've raced Vintage bikes from '87 on. Out there on the track things happen. I've low-sided , high-sided , been hit , crashed in someone else's oil. You never know when you're going to go slideing so, always be ready.
Style to me is making the corner as fast as you can , not , flying a stash in the wind.

Likie you, I raced in the 80's & 90s - classic Ducatis up to and including GP250 - and yes, I wore as much safety gear as possible.
But I never "raced" on a "circuit" lined with kerbs, steel fences - or people. So, while some guys were obviously trying harder than others, I suspect that overall speeds were pretty low - as the OP pointed out, the worst crash was by the course marshall on a modern bike!
If you look, it' not just the open helmets which suggest this - many of the leathers wouldn't pass a real pre-race scrutineer's inspection either; some have less protection that my road-riding suit.

Precis,
7 bikes crashed , 2 somersaulted . Have to try pretty hard to get that much action.
Sounds like a race.

Nope, sounds like a regular day's riding around here!
Somersaulted because they hit kerbs, perhaps?

Yep. The first guy hit a kerb. The marshalls were (in my opinion) late with waving the flags, but the crowd was already waving at the incoming riders, which only confused them. The sudden and very hasty response by the marshalls seconds later still came as a surprise after which the leader of the incoming group braked to hard and somersaulted too. The others hit him.


I was surprised about the helmets too. But the official name of the event was 'Classic Race Demo Nunspeet', so it wasn't an official race.


More photos will follow later this week.
