Some call it a two-wheeled Woodstock. We just call it The Thunderdrome!
Mopeds, scooters, minibikes, mountain bikes, go karts, pit bikes, fixed and geared track bikes and go-karts on a war-torn velodrome all vying for the same prize: GLORY! It's hipster NASCAR meets a compound fracture.
This is the first race of three in our 2011 season. Practice and registration starts at 9AM with the racing kicking off at 12PM sharp.

The Thunderdrome! is a Not-Just-For-Profit Company, which means we're rolling our profits directly into the repair, restoration and revival of the Dorais Park and Velodrome in Detroit, MI. Once home to many Olympic level cyclists, the National Soapbox Derby races and thousands of neighborhood children, Dorais Park has fallen to vandals, natural erosion and garbage dumpers. We've taken it upon ourselves to restore the velodrome, rebuild the children's playground and bring back the 1/2 mile Soapbox Derby Hill - but we need your help! Keep racing with and watching The Thunderdrome! and you'll be helping the cause!
