    Rode the bikes to the Luxembourg hill race yesterday with my daughter and a neighbor. It was all cars - no bikes. 1.9KM one way race, timed. All up hill.

    Hard to get across the noise of these engines.

    At the start:

    These guys were running the course in 1:05 to 1:10

    The Mustang provides some entertainment for the audience with a massive power slide

    Then the faster guys come on:

    And then the really, really fast guys go. So fast it was hard to catch them in frame, and with the zoom, could not get shutter speeds fast enough to get really clear pics.

    These guys took the times down from 1:05 to 51 seconds! And that first category was already the Viper and the souped up Mustangs, BMW and Porsches!
