|The Sidecar Racers Association-West will be racing with AFM at Buttonwillow on October 20th. It has been brought to my attention that a fundraising event will be happening that Saturday for James Cornell who was inujured at the 2006 Isle of Man TT and is still on the long road to full recovery.
Formula I and Formula II Sidecar Drivers will be taking folks for taxi rides during lunch time for a $20.00 minimum donation, which of course will go the the James Cornell Fund.
Please feel free to come down to Buttonwillow and watch the sidecar races on Saturday and AFM motorcycle races on Sunday. Motels are cheap and the drive is relatively short compared to other tracks. Buttonwillow is south on I-5 just adjacent to the Bakersfield/Hwy58 cutoff. Driving time is about 3 hours or less (depending on how fast you ride!)
What: Taxi rides on FI and FII sidecars ~ A fundraiser for James Cornell
How Much: A 20 dollar donation buys you an E-ticket ride on the back
When: Saturday, October 20th, Buttonwillow Raceway Park
What time: Taxi rides will be during the AFM lunch break, I'd be there a couple hours early
Requirements for SRA-West James Cornell Benifit taxi ride:
~ SNELL approved full-face helmet
~ 1 piece leathers or 2 piece leathers with a working 360 deg. zipper
~ Gloves / Boots (no exposed laces)
~ Back Protector
