Team Chicago Pictures?

Hey All,

I know a few members from this forum went to the Team Chicago Track School day back in April of this year. I was there (riding a ratty old blue BMW R100) and saw a photographer shooting at the bus stop. Does anybody know who it was or where I could possibly buy some pictures?

I didn't get much riding in this summer, but next summer I'm hoping to meet up for some group rides and whatnot.

Just to clarify, this was at Grattan. Thanks for your help!

Go to www.TeamChicago.tv and contact Dan to ask if he can put you in touch with the photographer. While you're at it you could ask him about obtaining a DVD of the Cable Access show he made of this years school

That would have been my first suggestion as well.

Unfortunately, the earliest photos I could find at the heavypennyphoto site from Gratten for 2011 are of Sportbike Tracktime in May...Team Chicago was the first or second weekend in April. Contact Dan...he should be able point you in the right direction. If not, I'll contact the ChiVinMoto group about who took all their pictures from Dan's Gratten school and where they might be posted. A very large group of ChiVinMoto people took the school to qualify for AHRMA licenses and I know they had alot of photos.

Thanks for the help! I haven't contacted Dan or Brian yet but will soon. I agree, it looks like the heavypennyphoto site doesn't have pictures from the weekend I did. That weekend infected me with the racetrack bug, so there will be many more chances to get pictures if these photos don't turn up.

Thanks,
Kirby
