Sorry, wrong num­ber

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Letters -

Con­grat­u­la­tions on a great magazine; but somebody has prob­a­bly al­ready pointed out that in your page 34 quiz in the last is­sue (Au­gust, 2017) no. 12 is Barry Sheene, not 11. The blue RG500 is a bit of a mys­tery, but that year, 1983, the go­daw­ful film ‘Space Riders’ was be­ing shot, with footage shot at var­i­ous Bri­tish meet­ings blended in with real Grands Prix, so var­i­ous peo­ple had their bikes in fake paint­work at some meet­ings... would you be­lieve Steve Par­rish dis­guised as Kenny Roberts?

How­ever the Gal­lina team from Italy also en­tered some UK events; I re­mem­ber see­ing Uncini and Reg­giani at Brands and Ar­mando Ericco (I think) in the Euro Cham­pi­onship meet­ing at Don­ing­ton, so I’ll be in­ter­ested to know who it is in the Scar­bor­ough photo.

It’s David Grif­fiths. We messed up the num­bers. Sorry read­ers – JM
