Phil Nicoletti Enjoying California's "Winter."
In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory...
On Tuesday, we met up with some of the AutoTrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing boys at the Suzuki Test Track for some pre-season shooting. Phil Nicoletti, who spent the better part of this year recovering from a shattered heel, is now 100% healed and looking faster than ever. If you are a fan of Phil, you are also probably a fan of his unique attitude and demeanor that leaves a lot of people around him laughing on the daily. While setting up for his GoPro Onboard laps, Phil was having a world of trouble setting his holeshot device and Weston Peick was behind him to talk smack the whole time. Since the video has a fair amount of select four-letter words in it I posted it to my personal Instagram. CLICK HERE to have a good laugh, and cheer Phil on next year – he’s ripping!
