Motos in my 2016 Marshaling Calendar

I forgot to add a Motorcycle race to my wishlist in 2016. So here’s a post reminding myself to do it! This year I did express interest in MotoGP at COTA but I did it way too late and it didn’t materialize in time even though they accepted me to marshal there. The irony from […]

Though I won’t […]

Maxi Endurance 32h in Portimão, Portugal

The United States Grand Prix was a letdown. In a way it was like watching a car wreck in slow motion. I knew based on my post assignment it wasn’t going to be a thrilling event, and being there only proved the inevitable boredom. But I refuse to end my marshaling season on a sour […]
