CRACK­ING READ

Classic Racer - - READERS WRITE -

Dear CR The lat­est is­sue of the mag­a­zine is a crack­ing read full of in­ter­est­ing ar­ti­cles, sto­ries and let­ters. For the die-hard true clas­sic era fans you have the Bene­dicto Cal­darella, Gin­ger Mol­loy and Dick Klam­foth sto­ries. All ex­cel­lent reads. Then for the post-clas­sic fans you have the Clive Hor­ton, Aaron Slight and Alan Carter sto­ries with ex­cel­lent ar­ti­cles about Steve Hislop, Suzuki Katana and Yamaha OW60 fam­ily line. I al­ways en­joy the pho­tog­ra­phy of Jan Burg­ers, like his lat­est 1975 Ital­ian Grand Prix piece. In the let­ters sec­tion I thought the re­ply by Mick Chat­ter­ton to a pre­vi­ous let­ter about the TT was one of the most in­ter­est­ing and in­for­ma­tive let­ters ever pub­lished in that fo­rum. The let­ter from Derek Palmer about the G50 Metisse took me back to that great Tom Kirby pe­riod and Alan Bar­nett who was one of my favourite rid­ers mounted on those im­mac­u­late Kirby ma­chines.
