Tribute to the Privateers of racing

After my teammate wrecked at the Buttonwillow round for WERA West this season, essentially forcing him into retirement from racing, I decided to make a video to cheer him up. Unfortunately school got in the way, so it took me longer than I had hoped to throw this together. I was also waiting on actual video of my teammate wrecking earlier in the year at Miller, but it turns out the video was not digital, so I'll have to buy a capture card later and add it in. My teammate is Paul Harnum, Novice #305 in WERA West, that's him in the wheelchair sitting in front of his trashed 600.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

cool vid.

my hats off to all these privateers, pushing it to the limits,
doing their thing on their own dime.

Cool video, Kurt. Paul's a good dude. At least he'll be able to do track days with the rest of us guys that don't have enough cash to even think about racing. He gonna be better by April? I'm planning a TD then.

Yea, he's already riding. He can't put all his weight on his ankle yet though, so he hasn't done a track day yet. He'll be fine by next year easily though.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
