As it turns out, dirt track racing Vespa is a thing in Italy and some other parts of the world. Man, who would have a thought a tame, leisurely ride can be this awesome? I mean, Vespa is cool and all, but to see it doing air is just so surreal. Except it is very real and it is happening, even on ice.
