Se­ri­ous busi­ness.

Classic Racer - - ARCHIVE -

YEAR: 1973// TRACK: SIL­VER­STONE// CORNER: CLUB// WHEN RAC­ING MEN COULD COME IN A MORE SOLID SIZE THAN THE MOD­ERN RAC­ING WHIP­PETS, WOULD YOU RE­ALLY WANT TO MESS WITH EI­THER TONY JEF­FERIES (32) OR DAVE CROCKFORD (22)? NO, US NEI­THER.

THIS was when men were men and rac­ing wasn’t the pre­serve of the del­i­cate or the fear­ful.tony Jef­feries picks his line on the 350ccyamaha with pre­ci­sion while Dave Crockford uses more of the track (nat­u­rally so) to hus­tle the 750 Nor­ton around be­hindtj. Look at the faces. Not a smile among them. Rac­ing is a se­ri­ous busi­ness when you’re on the throt­tle. Save the light stuff for a beer or two in the pad­dock later.
