The NOLA Vintage Grand Prix kicks off this weekend (March 18-20th)
The 3 days of vintage motorcycle racing, music, swap meets, and much more probably wouldn't have come together without the work of passionate people like Clint Austin.
The Navy diver turned oil & gas industry vessel Captain had been only a casual motorcycle rider until a visit to NOLA Motorsports Park exposed him to the madness of real racers on a closed course going impossibly fast, dragging their knees in curves, and making it all look incredibly fun.
From that day, he was hooked.
Clint now races competitively and has started a business called NOLA Riding Academy that teaches riders proper technique and rents out small displacement race bikes for people to hit the track on. His love of all things two-wheeled has now gotten him involved with AHRMA and the NOLA Vintage Grand Prix. We talked to Clint about how he got involved with AHRMA, what kinds of bikes he now rides, and what he's looking forward to seeing at the Grand Prix this weekend.
Come see it for yourself.
See you at the track!
