CROZ STRIKES BACK
Graeme Crosby was caught up in the Mick Grant ‘Aggro TT’ affair and was angry when Honda protested his attempt to change start numbers. But he struck back by winning the Talbot 500cc TT later in the week. He took the title after an epic battle with Liverpudlian Ian Richards on a privateer Suzuki. The pair were separated by two seconds as they started the last lap, but Richards’ gearbox locked solid and he was forced to retire.
