Detroit Thunderdrome City

Dailies, Galleries -


Once again, Detroit has proved itself America’s leading city of hoonage. Saturday, The Thunderdrome’s second ever race went off successfully, defying the infield lake, roving packs of post-apocalyptic UAW zombies and this country’s encroaching mediocrity in the process. What follows are pictures and video of no-barriers-to-entry motorcycle racing at its finest.

    I never thought I would say this, but Detroit is pretty cool to even allow something like this.
