The Thunderdrome Race coming up on October 16, 2010 is an event I’ve seen grown from an idea in Andy Didorosi’s head to an international event in the span of a month. Hogpath has had the opportunity to capture a bit of the progress on video. This event has all the elements – mad max, reverse vandalism, urban renewal, deindustrialization, post-modernism, tacos, hope, sweat, racing, bicycles, mopeds, scooters, vespas, and the attitude of “screw it, let’s just make it happen”. People have taken notice when Pabst decided to sponsor the event.
These guys are working hard, I’m talking back-breaking work, to clear and restore the track so that racers can claim their glory.
