Default Meet the ThunderDrome

In 2010, we had this crazy idea: Dig out an old, nearly forgotten velodrome in Detroit, patch it up, cut down the brush and hold a race there. Thanks to friends, sponsors, and the community at large in a little over a month we managed to do it and make a helluva good time of it. We call it The Thunderdrome! Everyone had such a hoot at the 2010 event that weíre doing it again every year year Ė only bigger and better. Weíre adding more classes and a whole mess of other great ideas brewed up over bad brew. The Thunderdrome! isnít your average race: itís loose, itís raw, and itís for people who take their corn flakes with a little bit of rocket fuel. You have to be a little weird to like it Ė but thatís what makes it good!

I remember seeing an article on this a few years ago when they started working on it. Looks like a ton of fun!

I live directly across from it. The entrance for the park is the same as my street, its awesome to see people keeping up the place. I've raced my jeep and my friends VW rabbit arou nd it and in the winter it makes a funny hill climb.
