January 19, 2013 Vintage Race Prep.
Whitefield, NH

With the Lisbon Snowmobile race only a week away, I couldn't help bumping into some local racers tuning on their vintage machines on Saturday.
Aaron Belanger was in the lower garage finishing up work on his 1975 440 fan cooled Merc Trail-Twister.

Aaron's father Ray is an old hand at making these motors perform.

Time for a test run.

Aaron was a little anxious as he felt things out.

I think his expression says it all!

In another corner of the garage Benny, under the watchful eye of his grandfather, was working on a 340 engine that will go in the 1974 free air below.
