The Central Florida Trail Riders hare scramble in Bartow, Florida. The CFTR race “Peace River 2018” is a Florida Trail Riders sanctioned event.
I was unable to attend Saturday races, but here are a few morsels from the Sunday morning race and the afternoon race. The morning race started 60 minutes later than usual. I was told that was due to the huge turnout and the registration computers could not get everyone registered by the normal cut-off time. The afternoon race was delayed only 30 minutes, I believe.
First row, afternoon race
As promised, here is part 2 of CCS Motorcycle Racing at Homestead on May 7. (see part 1 here.) Most of these images are from the ‘afternoon’ races. I only saw one small cloud in the sky all day, which means I went through a log of SPF 30 sunblock lotion. Temperature was around 80 for the high of the day.

Because all motorcycles and riders have to go through tech inspection before being allowed on the track, the job of Tech Inspector guarantees you get to meet the prettiest racers.
I have a lot of photos from this race, so I will break this up into two blog postings; to see the rest of part 1
Sometimes, you are determined to go racing, but do not bother to use traditional methods.

I would never make fun of this guy. You have heard that phrase about ‘glass houses’, right? So let me show you how I often traveled to Moroso and Homestead to race in CCS Lightweight Sportsman Class.
1984 Yamaha RZ350 on its way to Moroso. Probably 1995.
Got to love Ancra Tie Downs. One on each wheel secure the bike to the bumper, and more go from the handlebars, through both rear windows, and back out and to the rear frame. It shook and wobbled with every start, stop, or bump.
I eventually bought a one axle enclosed trailer. One time on the way back from an F.T.R. hare scramble in Okeechobee the bumper of this motorhome suddenly broke, almost completely off. I was able to stop in town and take care of the situation.
It was a tough decision; I woke up Saturday morning at Daytona International Speedway about 7 hours before the 76th Daytona 200 thinking about the antique / vintage races at New Smyrna Speedway 12 miles away. Should I actually miss the Daytona 200 to go see a ‘new’ race? I had no idea what it would be like. But I did know that I wanted to see 100 year old bikes actually being used.
Of course the tires and wheels were ‘new’. The frames were replicas. But the spirit was 100% board track; no brakes, no suspension, no gear box and no clutches to be found on the track. Read More
