Cafe Racer Festival - Linas Montlhery Autodrome near Paris

Cool event held last weekend, the first Cafe Racer Magazine Festival, held at the old Linas Montlhery banked circuit just outside Paris. Thought I'd share a few of the photo's I snapped over the weekend -

.... and finally





















It's difficult to capture just how steep the banking is in a photo, but the Suzuki 1200 two photo's below is the bike at the top of the banking below. This guy was freakin' awesome, no fairing, open face helmet, no silencer, and pulling 150mph in the top lane of the banking lap after lap. :shock: 8-) :shock: 8-) :shock: He was getting bollockings from the marshalls as they reckoned they didn't have public liability insurance above lane 3 and he was in lane 5. He was just laughing it off though and going for it again in the next session. Amazing to watch.

WOW! Great photos!

That Slippery Sam-esque Hinckley Daytona with the single-sided swingarm spoked wheel and raygun silencer is weirdness of the most awesome caliber.

What, apart from this one

But although there were a few, they weren't that many Guzzi's.
