Lawn mower racing, my other hobby!

http://youtu.be/aHkYC3jITqM

This was the races i was in this weekend. This is my first year at it and i ended up have to compete in the modified class as there were not very many stock mowers. I got 2nd in the mud courses but not so well on the dry course.

Check out the link!

Yeah it's a blast to mod a mower to go this fast. So much fun to race aswell. The John deer actually steers well. It has a VW turbo diesel Engin with a Chevette transmission and a John deer rear diff. It flies! But he popped a valve on that race as he found out after. Hence all the smoke.



'Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,totally worn out, shouting, 'Holy shit .... What a Ride!
Cheers, Nick

What was going on with the video, was that youtube image stabilization or some kind of tilt shift lens?

Looks like fun.
