WHITHAM v MACKEN­ZIE EPIC BSB TI­TLE FIGHT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - The Decades 1956-2006 -

Oc­to­ber 16, 1996 “Ju­bi­lant Niall Macken­zie stormed to the MCN Bri­tish Su­per­bike cham­pi­onship at Don­ing­ton Park on Sun­day – and the first per­son to con­grat­u­late him was de­feated ti­tle ri­val Jamie Whitham. Whitham started the day level on points but said: ‘Niall did ev­ery­thing right. He’s a true cham­pion.’ A con­vinc­ing first-race win, fol­lowed by a nar­row de­feat at the hands of Whit in race two, handed Macken­zie the ti­tle by just four points.”
