Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Dave Binch is clearly a man not afraid of a chal­lenge. It’s 25 years since Dave raced his Yamaha TZ 250A re­verse cylin­der at the MGP, which he bought new as a 20-year-old in 1990. The Yamaha, which Dave raced for the last time in the Isle of Man in 1997, fin­ish­ing ninth in the Manx Grand Prix, is cur­rently un­der­go­ing restora­tion for its part in Dave’s plan. The plan is to com­bine all of Dave’s three pas­sions – TZ Yamaha, the Isle of Man, and run­ning – in one char­ity fundrais­ing ef­fort. Day one is be­ing dubbed the Tight Leathers Chal­lenge; when he squeezes in to his leathers to ride in the Clas­sic Racer Lap of Hon­our. Day two will in­volve run­ning a lap of the TT Moun­tain Course to raise money for Can­cer Re­search UK.

If you would like to sup­port Dave con­tact him via the de­tails on the poster; all the money raised will go to char­ity as Dave and his friends are fund­ing the ef­fort.
