A STICKY SUBJECT…
I had to chuckle at the front cover of Classic Racer last time out: the-then two-seasons-old ‘Kent Racing Combine’ (KRC) fluorescent orange stickers holding down Kevin Schwantz’s and Wayne Rainey’s racing numbers on the front of their works bikes, flown in from the USA… Ha ha!
Way ahead of his time, I feel this was great recycling by Colin Dodd the chief KRC scrutineer, little did he know how many times these pictures would have been published! I mean, it would be like Valentino Rossi and Marc
Marquez’s Yamaha M1 and Honda RCV factory bikes adorned with BEMSEE stickers! Thinking back, I was watching or maybe marshalling that day, the racing was fantastic: Schwantz and Rainey fairing bashing from the off, lap-after-lap: I had never seen anything like it.
The Editor says: “Ahhh Colin was clearly light-years ahead of his time on that one: make do and mend!”
