Fate Favors the Fearless – Flat Track Motorcycle Racing Video

This tight film of the short track racing scene in the UK was shot by British photographer Richard Dawson at Oxford, when superstar and old school flat track racing hero, David Aldana, took a trip across the pond to race.

Do yourself a favor and find a local track and go watch the races. You won’t be sorry.
