I thought you might find my updates on racing my YZ426 up the Peak interesting. The bike was awesome to ride and hung on well with the CR500 and KX500's. I finally achieved a top speed of 80 MPH during the race. Check out my Picture and Daily Update pages.

Very cool! Thanks for the link and great pictures. Did you really drive that car? Was it a lot different than flogging the bike?

Thanks, Chris....

Naw, the car was a skin with a lawn chair in it! It looked cool though! If I ever raced a car up there I would want to run open wheelers like those! I love the Vintage stuff! I raced a Trackmaster Triumph up the Peak last year.
