My friend Manuel from Cometa Restaurations in Madrid, Spain sent these photos from the Classic Moto event on the Jarama circuit. It looks like a lot of fun, with a great selection of old bikes in the paddock and on the track, coming from Spain, Portugal, France, Holland and Italy.
As Manuel writes, “it is a weekend of friends and motorcycles”
