That was great! The first clip had a nice shot of Garth Sweetland, the first bike off the line. Garth was a great az racer who flew past me many times back in the old ADRA days! Garth actually overalled the 1mil a year or two later on the Kawi second team kx500, yet he still made it to most adra and whiplash races until the mid 90's.

Mark, when did class 1 buggies finally go to v-8s?

Scott,

A few guys tried V-8's a long time ago. The transaxles were the weak link. It wasn't until the early 2000's that transaxle development paved the way for V-8's. V-6's were still popular until the mid 2000's.
