"I've Come Too Far To Not Ride." Marcel Irnie re-visits Thunderhill Raceway, Willows California for the American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) final round of 2013. Unfortunately, Marcel got Salmonella Food Poisoning Saturday night and raced in his worst physical and mental condition of his Moto career. Will Marcel finish the race without puking in his Schuberth SR1? Subscribe to http://fb.com/superbikeracer & http://youtube.com/irnieracing to find out.
Also Keep in mind, the last time Irnie was at Thunderhill, he crashed hard from abs lockup at top of turn five. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkCT2foBB84 "Racing is Gambling and Gambling is Racing Part One."
