This is Hunter. Hunter races purpose-built motorcycles around a dirt track at speeds of up to 100 mph. In the corners, Hunter defies physics and pitches the motorcycle sideways and drifts around the bend. For stability, he puts his inside foot down into the dirt and kicks up some serious dust. He has a metal shoe strapped to his inside riding foot that you can hear scraping through the dirt as he drifts. This is flat track motorcycle racing. It's absolutely insane and it's ridiculously fun to watch.
This is Hunter's first year as an intermediate rider in the Flat Track Canada National Championship Series. Currently in #1, half way through the season, Hunter is truly an exceptional racer. And at only 13 years old, he's the youngest racer in the intermediate classes.
These pictures were taken at a recent Championship race at Flamboro Downs in Dundas, Ontario. The Flamboro half-mile is a big, fast track with long straightaways where you can really see how fast Hunter actually is. He won both his finals without much competition from his fellow racers.
Steeltown Garage Co. is a proud to be one of Hunter's many sponsors and part of a greater team including Showtime Racing and Kurt Biegger Racing.
