'Mountain Thunder' street racing at Methven 2012
Street racing in Methven, the annual 'Mountain Thunder' event. Really great place to watch street racing, definitely prefer it to Greymouth although it's a smaller circuit and not as fast. Good to see Paddy's Indian racing after having had it in our first issue. A young chick called Scout was racing it and really thrashing it. Great to see! The last pre 63 race saw an awesome battle between old man Ormsby and the guy on the #18 Triumph (who's name I can remember but will track down and chuck in here). Dan Ormsby was kicking ass on #32 in the Formula Methven... family day out! Phil from Street and Sport was doing the commentating and called me over for an interview over the PA system. That was hoot, a bit of free publicity! Cheers Phil.
