MACKEN­ZIE & FOGGY FIGHT FOR THIRD

Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview -

Au­gust 1, Don­ing­ton Park Mas­sive crashes, close rac­ing, con­tro­versy and Brits fight­ing for the podium. You can’t ask for much more at a Bri­tish GP and the 1993 race served up all of the above. Af­ter Mick Doohan clipped Alex Bar­ros on his way down and out, Kevin Sch­wantz was sent som­er­sault­ing into the Don­ing­ton airspace, in­ter­fer­ing with a flight path or two at East Mid­lands Air­port! That left team-mates Luca Cadalora and world ti­tle con­tender Wayne Rainey to fight for the win. Cadalora took his maiden 500GP win and upset team man­ager Kenny Roberts on the way who thought he should have let Rainey through. Mean­while Carl Fog­a­rty (hav­ing a wild­card ride on a Ca­giva) and Niall Macken­zie on the pri­va­teer ROC Yamaha to scrap it out for third. And scrap it out they did. The paint-swop­ping pair would not give an inch – that is un­til Foggy’s bike started run­ning out of fuel with a cou­ple of cor­ners to go. Macken­zie grabbed third and promised his cash-strapped team “steak and chips for sup­per”!
