Some images from a past race.  These are supposed to be Heritage bikes.  Not sure what the qualifications are, as I am not familiar with this Race Association yet.

 

Hope to learn more this coming weekend. Booked at an out of town track.

 

Enjoy ...

Great series, Art... I reckon that Monarch was utilizing the bikers slipstream to fly faster!

You never know what these butterflies are up to these days...

Thanks, Herman and Peter.

 

Herman, you just never know. Probably more of a Photobomb! :lol:

Peter, I was actually trying to get the butterfly, not the racers!  :P 

When I was editing, I thought at first it was a funny lens flare or something.  Zoomed in ... Monarch! Very cool!

Very cool shots.

 

From their website:

 

"The Vintage Road Racing Association (VRRA), Canada’s classic and vintage roadracing association, was founded in 1980 by a group of enthusiasts who just wanted to get their treasured machines back on the track. Their avowed purpose: to ensure the preservation of racing motorcycles and to maintain the traditions of racing vintage, and now classic motorcycles in Canada.

The Association has grown and flourished in the ensuing years and now actively promotes four racing events to encourage and expand participation in the sport. The VRRA is the only motorcycle association in Canada devoted solely to classic and vintage road racing – encompassing 1940s to 1980s machines – and is the oldest such organization in North America."

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

​Film: That tangible image that you can see and hold.

Nice series, Art.

 

The Monarch was probably doing a photo-bomb.  :P  :P  :P
