    Great show. Got to relax sitting on the beach playing with my daughter and see some very cool cars ripping up and down the beach. Here's two videos my wife shot with her phone. Sorry for the bad quality. I don't know how to post them any better than this.

    If you max the screen it's easier to see.

    Helmets? We don't need no stinking helmets! Well at least the sand is forgiving. Gary

    What about all the people that travel to Austin for the Roundup? What if people said it was too far to go? I'm driving to Austin in two weeks for a one day show and I'll turn around come back home (my circumstances are different them most people's I know). Don't worry about replicating it, just make plans to fly in and support this one! You won't be disappointed!!!

    It's nice to see General Gow pulling out that stuck Kamatsu! Go General!

    With the addition of that yellow fenderless racer, the event just grew in magnitude to a world inclusive event "The INTERNATIONAL Race of Gentlemen". Now truly recognized through all social and printed media outlets.

    Awesome event. Great pictures. Super bunch of people.

    For real, standing on the jetti behind the starting line as the bikes and cars took off felt like a differnt time period. The times back then must have been awesome just like yesterday was! Cant wait for next year! -E

    Thanks so much Mel, the Oilers, and everyone else for your hard work and that helped with the show! Jen and I had a great time. I felt very fortunate to be able to participate in such a uniqe event, watching the old cars and bikes run down the beach really got the blood racing. What a cool experiance to share with friends and also got to meet a lot of really nice people.

    A fantastic event!!! Good job guys. I hope it can go off again next year. If you missed it well...you missed out then didn't you.

    I also want to know what's up with the printed magazine or whatever. Looks like something I'd love a copy of.

    Verminator, I saw you and couldn't figure out how I knew the face till I saw your posts here. Sorry to not say hello.

    hah, Mike, I don't know how I missed you. It was such madness -- we kept running into people we knew, but if you were actually looking for somebody, you kept missing them in the crowd!!!! See you soon

    Think I just found show to fill the void left by the Pileup. Looks like a great time.
