YAMAHA TRY TO SIGN WAYNE GARD­NER

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Yamaha were des­per­ate to sign flavour-of-the­month Wayne Gard­ner. The Honda rider had ap­proaches from Gi­a­como Agos­tini, who was run­ning a team backed by Marl­boro’s mil­lions. It wasn’t to be, al­though when ques­tioned about fu­ture plans, Wayne pre­dicted that ri­val Ed­die Law­son would ride a Kenny Roberts Yamaha. He was right and it spawned one of the most po­tent part­ner­ships of the 80s.
