Edward Lawson on his Z1000 getting a little bit out of shape at Laguna Seca
Sliding Z1000R to victory
If ever a picture captured commitment it is surely this magnificent frame of Muzzy Kawasaki AMA star Eddie Lawson deftly drifting his Z1000R to victory. Lori Tyson was behind the lens.
“It was taken at Laguna Seca, California, in what was turn nine (now 11). He’d been sliding every lap, but not to that extent. That turn exits onto the long, uphill straightaway; the sooner you can get on the gas, the better drive you get. Eddie was taking every advantage.
“This particular lap was towards the end, tyres hot and going off, but being an experienced dirt-tracker Eddie just flattracked it. He won the race.”
