Hindenberg Dirt Track Races 2012

The annual Dirt Track Races at the Hindenberg Speedway offer enthusiasts of pre-1959 cars and bikes the opportunity to race in the traditional way: on loose dirt, with very little grip, and with a rather relaxed attitude to personal safety. The only prize on offer is pure old-school glory, and the competitors chase this ethereal trophy with dogged enthusiasm, straining at their lap-belts and/or on their knees to cross the line - possibly sideways, or backwards - ahead of all challengers.
You can learn more about the event here, and see a fantastic set of photos of this year's event here.

These photos were taken by Kai Petermann, whose work can be found here: www.strlw.de

Would you please be so kind and mention my site as well, since you're using my photos without asking me. I disabled the downloading not just for fun.

Please add a link to www.strlw.de and mention my full name (Kai Petermann) as the photographer. I have no problem with the point that you're using the images, I just want a proper mention.

Thanks in advance. Best, Kai.

P.S. Of course you can delete this comment afterwards. ;)

Sorry about that Kai, I found the photos on a forum that linked to the Flickr album, but hadn't seen your site. Now amended, with apologies!
