Stumbled across practice for "Yamaha Cup" racing behind Airport Plaza Chiang Mai today (Friday,27 oct. 06). They have layed out a large road race course by setting up a track bordered by car tires, (yes the usual safety measures, spectators about 1 meter from where the bikes will surely crash). Modified Yamaha stepthroughs, but FAST! Sponsored teams, even have full leathers, a step above what we see at the CM Speedway. Practice Saturday, racing beginning at 9:00AM Sunday. They said 4 races so I have no idea how that will work out schedule wise. Not much of a spectator area as there is only two sides of the track you can watch from and no seats or stands as of today. Looks like some potentially good races though. That's all I know. Oh yeah, bring an umbrella, no shade. Dave Early Ever notice that "What the Heck!" is usually the right answer?
