    Yeah, we gotta have a few...

    At any rate. At Portland International Raceway this weekend, round 10 of the SRA-West / Superside America series gets underway on the brand new/freshly repaved PIR raceway that the OMRRA racers have been raving about.

    Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 19-20: Motorcycle Road Racing The Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Assoc. brings two days of knee-dragging motorcycle road racing to the 2-mile road course. Practice and qualifications both mornings, racing both afternoons. $10 admission.

    As you can see by the points. We're current 5 points shy of third in the championship points standings, and we plan to change that this weekend at PIR.

    So if you're a Portland/Oregon ADV'er come on out to the track Saturday/Sunday and cheer us on. Come out on Saturday with your gear and you might even get a ride on a F1 sidecar.

    we race Sunday, practice on Saturday.

    I'm hoping it stays dry, we don't have a set of wets in our spares and we'll be out there running on slicks if it's wet. :huh

    We made it to the track.

    The deal is the sidecar taxi rides will be right after the 'taste of racing' fan lap on the track some time around lunch. Come find us in the pits for more info. We're right by the big Pepsi bridge/overcrossing that go from the main stands to the inside 'pro pits'. All the sidecars are grouped in one big area. We'll be in the Team Excalibur pits. Anybody that wants to ride on a F1 sidecar come find us before lunch and I'll hook you up with Rick or Mr. Bill for who to talk to about getting your name on the list for a ride.
