Another old guy living in the past...

Great thread to cruise through and see some older history as well as recent stuff....Have to admit like most have already said on here...the memory get's a bit fuzzy on all the details...

For me I started in 1985 in 600 S/S & F-1 with #424 and won the F-1 race in the AMA Pro-Am race....then went on to win the 1986 AFM 600 S/S North title...ran FZ600's, Ninja 600's, GSXR 750's, ZX7's and a few more I might remember later. Last race was #99 in the 1991 Laguna Seca AMA National running 750 Supersport on a Kawasaki ZX7. Ran the WERA 24hrs West about 5 yrs winning two classes in the late 80's......I remember being pitted next to that ole Kanatuna Budman in 1989! I think we won 750 heavyweight after I broke my collarbone in turn one in the 23rd hour!

There's my $ .02 worth.....Hope to keep hearing from some of the old racers..and old friends.

Talking Hello former and current AFM-ers

Greetings friends.

I raced w. AFM (as well as a sub on a couple of Italian endurance teams) from 1998 through 2006. Retired after breaking my femur in a freak accident: oil spill over the top of turn 3A at BW, never my fave track. Miss the camaraderie and weekend fun (but not all the wrenching and prep time, to be honest).

I'm now on the East Coast with the much reduced riding season that results (and the Duc under a blanket of snow).

Haven't forgotten you guys.

Jeffrey Schnapp
former AFM #48

Formula Singles champ 2004
Formula Singles 3rd place 2003
250 Superbike 7th 2000-2001
2000 AFM Endurance champ in 450 class w. Team Toss (Youngie et al.) on a rickety TZ250 that we managed to get into 4th place overall even against the open class bikes

also raced some Formula III and 600 superbike (once upon a time)

Some of you may remember the red Tigcraft 700 (a real exotic beauty):

Never raced bikes before, but have raced cars in SCCA and NASA. New/Old School (44 year old) racing on an '85 Kawasaki GPz550/ZX550 (25 year old). Listed in AFM as #31A, but any day now it should click over to $943 NC. Looking forward to meeting a bunch of racers that use to have one of these.




Still have some safety wiring to do, and a belly pan to fabricate before March 22. That will be here very soon.

Always looked forward to the 4 hr endurance race. Raced it every year from 2002 -2008. Fortunately we did all those races with no crashes or DNFs.
