Close fin­ishes, a dom­i­nat­ing per­for­mance and some­thing of a find in the ‘chairs’ added to the mem­o­rable BHR meet­ing for round two of the cham­pi­onship in Lin­colnshire.


Six­teen-year-old pas­sen­ger Arlo Brown, in only his sec­ond race meet­ing, gave an as­sured per­for­mance on the side of Phil Jones, help­ing him to three podium fin­ishes in the BEARS side­cars. Dis­cov­ered dur­ing side­car ‘taxi’ rides, Brown is learn­ing fast and ‘Slow Phil’ may have to re-think his nick­name! Phil Boote and Jayne Mor­ris had two out­fits at their dis­posal – the 950cc MRE Nour­ish, seen here, took them to a win in race one of the pre-73 side­cars, but it ex­pired in race two. The Yamaha Xs-based out­fit be­haved well on the Sun­day, tak­ing them to two sec­ond places in the pre-73 up to 750cc class. Above: Gra­ham Buller (195) and Nick Bed­ford (3) bat­tle for the lead in the Pre-1962 350cc cham­pi­onship. Buller took the first three races by slen­der mar­gins – just 0.2 of a sec­ond in Sun­day’s fi­fi­first race. Bed­ford’s per­sis­tence paid off though and he took the win in the fi­nal race by the small­est of gaps. CharlesC Davies and Ge­off Mills fought hard over the win in the first 1963-72 250 ra ace. The two Du­catis were evenly matched and af­ter los­ing the lead to Mills on lap th hree, Davies re-took the lead on the last lap to win by half a sec­ond. Mills took his re evenge in the last race, win­ning from Davies by 0.3 of a sec­ond.

Left: Af­ter los­ing out to Robert Dues­bury in all four of the Rex Caunt Ban­tam races, Mike Pow­ell, per­haps ap­pro­pri­ately, pipped him to the flag by half a sec­ond in the Richard Pow­ell Me­mo­ri­al­tro­phy.

Be­low: Sam Rhodes, of the well-known Ve­lo­cette dy­nasty, was only present for the Satur­day races but he made his time count by tak­ing his 500cc MSS to two sec­ond places be­hind the fly­ing Lee Moore in the Pre-63 500cc class.
