Motorcycle Racetrack Drift Insanity Video

A fun project outside of our normal racing. Hope everyone enjoys it and shares this project with friends and family so we can do more...

-Graves...



What happens when you combine a Graves WORKS Project / 2012 Yamaha R1 / purpose-built stunt bike, a three-time XDL stunt champion, fast cars, hot girls, helicopters, an awesome race track and film the entire event through Tyler Kirk Films? Pure and sic drift insanity and the most advanced drift bike ever built. Graves Yamaha champion stunt rider Bill Dixon and Graves Motorsports teamed up for the epic undertaking of creating a purpose-built stunt bike designed to showcase Bill Dixon’s stunt capabilities. When they tested the bike at Willow Springs Raceway, it blew away everyone’s expectations. “When Chuck Graves told me there were no limits to what Graves Motorsports could do, I had no idea he meant it literally,” said Bill Dixon, “The bike is the epitome of badass.” Watch for Dixon’s favorite shot of the video; him passing the Nissan GTR mid-corner in a high speed drift with the helicopter hovering on the outside of the turn. “Bill had so much fun drifting the Graves Yamaha, I was jealous,” said Chuck Graves of Graves Motorsports, “Projects like this are the driving force at Graves. ‘Create without limits’, ‘Strive for 11/10ths’, ‘Give maximum effort’ and ‘Just a bit more’ are the maxims we live by at Graves. I can’t wait for the next project!”
