Grossglocker Trophy 2010 -- The first hill climb --
BMW 51 R/S 1938
In the middle of the hill climbing, I heard something barking at the opposite of the road, there was a little fawn! The bambi kept singing and unexpectedly, started crossing the race course towards me! I really struggled myself if I should make me to get in the middle of the race course and warn the bambi or do nothing, but what if it stays there, a racer try to avoid and then mis-handle.... That moment must have been a couple of seconds but felt quite long time. I decided to pop into the road and stepped loudly, the bambi was probably very friendly and did not seem to have wariness so my loud stomp gave him a big shock (Good!) but his foot could not grip the man-made ground enough and slipped over! (OMG!) I made the situation bloody worse! A man and a fawn would have looked like playing in the middle of the road! But, luckily, his action was pretty quick and jumped back into the bushes, then soon after, a next racer turned out without knowing any drama between the bambi and me...
