A quick look at Mods Vs Rockers last year was that we were joined by some of our motard racers from Sandyhook at this even who brought along their vintage motorcycles to take home best Japanese Motorcycle which was Paul Lough for an RD350 and for all those who raced at Sandyhook and NJMINIGP in 2010 will know Paul well not only for is skill on the track but as a supporter of MASRC from 2009. Also so with Paul at this event was Mark with his 64 Honda 200, so the day was a great time with scooter burnouts wheelies and<Photo 5>Tommy Thunders Allstate taking home best Vintage scooter.<Photo 3>
Scooter Racing in 2010 was in full swing at NJMINIGP with MASRC who placed 5 scooters on the track as well as Mike McHale on his super Aprillia which I know he cant wait to get back on the track with MASRC in 2011 as well as NJMINIs top rider Eric Stump who took first in the scooter final. XMR PROs was also placing scooters in the scooter racing series in 2010 at Sandyhook all year.
The scooter rides in 2010 from Scootertronics in Thurmont MD were in full swing on Aug 1 with 35 scooter riders showing to ride with Scooertronics. These scooter riders came from up to 100 miles away to ride with Scootertronics from the states of VA, PA and MD ridding everything from simple chinese knock offs to Beverly 500s a lot of Super 9s Etons plus Buddy 50s Piaggio Fly and LX, all riders donated can food to food bank. Thi sday made Tommy and I very proud to have this type of support from local riders so we intend to give much more back at this years Thunder Cacotian Mountain Ride scooter ride event.
MASRC has Twist and Gone in their sights as well as OHYSR at Circleville plus Mini Mash on May 29th in Camden OH.
With a scooter race team from Stage 6 getting on the track with MASRC and SRC at Scootertronicssponsored events as well as other events we are not directly involved in 2011 scooter racing will be huge for all.
