I saw that same pic, but the driver was a rider on a bull and there were two clowns behind him... the clowns are still there.

http://www.y8s.com/gallery/thunderhill102104 more pics

they were taken by a real photographer. woo.

it's pretty cool how some of the cornering pictures show the tires rolling over from the GEE FORCE. Those might be P-Zero Nero summers.

Here's a different event that was post DIY turbo and then brand spankin' new RT-615 azenis. oh yeah, and keith's 7.
