Ed­ward Law­son on his Z1000 get­ting a lit­tle bit out of shape at La­guna Seca

Slid­ing Z1000R to vic­tory

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Contents -

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.”
