Racing Yin and Yang

Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Two leg­ends.two dif­fer­ent at­ti­tudes to mo­tor­cy­cling. For­mer GP and World Su­per­bike star Frankie Chili was more than happy with his spir­ited runs in the GP Leg­ends ses­sions while Jeremy Mcwil­liams was racing as well as demon­strat­ing. “Fif­teen min­utes on the track is per­fect for me,” said Chili. “Any more and I might make trou­ble for my­self.” Chili is one of those rac­ers who never rides on the road, view­ing mo­tor­cy­cling purely as a sport. “I’ve not rid­den on the road since I was 18 and promised my mother I would sell all my bikes if I went racing. Now I think rid­ing on the road is too dan­ger­ous.” Mcwil­liams also doesn’t ride on the road in his leisure hours but get him to a track and you have trou­ble get­ting him off. “I was of­fered a last minute ride (by­tom Der­mody) and thought I’d give it a crack,” he said.
