There was a great turnout at Tattershall Karting Centre to honour massive bike fan Roger Windley who died last year, and benefit the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance. Here’s a small selection of bikes and riders
“I NEVER USED TO RUN THEM, BUT AFTER THE CADWELL PARK 80TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT I CHANGED MY MIND”
1. Carl Buckle and the ex-roger Burnett RS500. “It was spinning up everywhere,” he said. “I was glad to get it back to the paddock in one piece.”
2. Modern machines mixed it with vintage and classic stuff too. It was also a ‘no noise limit’ event. So yes, it was loud.
3. Grand Prix machine collector Chris Bourn brought five Yamahas. “I never used to run them, but after the Cadwell 80th Anniversary, I changed my mind. They’re all in running order now.”
4. Leathers of the greats on display in the Karting Centre – no shortage of classy memorabilia everywhere you looked.
5. Lincs race legend Paul Cott with Chris Bourn’s line-up. Number 3 bike in a ex-gene Romero TZ750.
6. Mick Oliver with his historic Thompson Suzuki T20. “I used to peer into the window of Harry Thompson’s shop on Station Parade in Harrogate when I was a kid. I got his bike in 1978 at an auction.”
7. Looking for all the world like a factory Rothman’s operation, the number 9 machine is ex-grand Prix, the VFR is a pretty convincing RVF replica.
8. Lyle Govan and his Egli Kawasaki and Honda. “I like four pipes, not four-into-one’s.” They were loud.
