The German science show "Galileo" filmed us and KillaCycle yesterday. The theme for the episode is "Can you do 0-60 mph in less than 1 second?" (kind of like Mythbusters).
Picture: Tracy getting ready for the burnout. The TV team has still not realized what of a show they are in for... KillaCycle's burnouts are impressive.
The super nice film team with host Kimmo Wiemann started out filming in our garage when we prepared KillaCycle for the race (unfortunately I forgot to take any photos of that. Sorry for that.) We then continued to film at Bandimere Speedway where Galileo had rented the track. It is really awesome to have the track to yourself. ;-)
To show how insanely fast 0-60 in 1 second is, we raced against the local racer Matt Villescas and his beautiful and super hot Mitsubishi Evolution X. Do I have to say that Matt didn't have a chance on KillaCycle...? ;-)

Picture: The local magazine Westworld took the opportunity to come by to make an interview and take photos. Tracy is getting used to be a celebrity. ;-) Tracy does a great job riding the KillaCycle and does great on camera.
