North Manchester HPRA HPV Racing Pictures
Races held August 18th & 19th at the North Manchester, Indiana high school. Thanks to race director Jeff Hunn, Timing official Luke Gilbert, 2 registration volunteers, and corner workers Reena, and Jeff's dad for making the event run smoothly. Saturday temps were in the 70s under hazy skies, which made good racing weather. Sunday's races were rained out.

While the 1 lap TTs were run, we also did a fun race. The object was to race around the parking lot, pick up bean bags, and then toss them over the island and try to hit the bullseye. There were more points for accuracy than speed. Here, Jane tosses a beanbag towards the target as Reena keeps score. Jane was very good at this race...
Warren doing the Beanbag Race on Garrie's Greenspeed race trike. He had the fastest time, but a low beanbag score.

Rick Gritters tied Warren for 2nd place in stock class, despite a nasty crash which gave him some road rash and required him to do some track side bike repair.

Garrie says: I didn't run the trike in anything other than the bean bag toss. Oregon/tailbox/#44 was run in the 45 minute race and the 1 lap TT.

As proof, here is a picture of me streaking by at warp speed during the TT. Or, it could be a pic of me doing a track stand? ;-) Notice the look of grim determination and the carefully crafted, aerodynamic double chin!!
