First Ever Recorded Motor Racing Accident (1919)

First Ever Recorded Motor Racing Accident (1919). This is rare footage of Louis Chevrolet (co-founder of Chevrolet Motor Car Company) racing at Coney Island, NY in September of 1919. Louis is driving the number 7 Frontenac. The images have been reversed, and the footage shows the cars racing clockwise around the track, instead of counter-clockwise.Louis is seated on the infield side of his machine, with his riding mechanic seated on the outside of the car. This was one of the last races he ever competed in. He dropped out when his car caught on fire. The movie has been edited, and we see the start of the race, Louie taking the early lead, the fire, and then Louis racing side by side.

Motorized Bicycle Board Track Racer Part 1

Hi Folks,

I built this Bike within one week only - but with many emotions and preparings to make this Project succsessful.

Anyway, here ist the result...in Pic and Vid.

Video Quality is poor (320P), sorry for that - HD Video also a running mode of the bike are following soon as possible.

Please take a look to the Pics also - because they can give you a lot more details of the bike.

Today in very hot temperatures outside, the bike starts after 10m of pedaling and unlock the clutch immediately and runs very well.
My heart beats like a drum, but this is normal in this situation.
The Maiden run was very impressive for me!
