signal hill speed run trailer -vintage footage...

#1

went & sampled signal a short while back…the footage here does not do the hill justice…its a bitch…(& a major bust now, $500 on the spot fine for putting urethane to asphalt !).
i saw the turner /hester /piercy skate cars that were campaigned @ signal in skatelab last year,the technology was basic, they must have been a scary ass ride!..

enjoy… vintage signal hill… :wink:

Had a roll on the stroker tonight. Twitchy old thing.
The skate cars must have been so hard to control.
And that hill, its like a giant start ramp.
Rolled a car down it. It’s was almost like using the engine to get going!

When will that doco be screened?
