Nothing comes close to a lap of the infamoustt course. Just ask anyone who’s raced there. Even at normal speeds it’s undeniably special, and in early September we got the chance to do exactly that.
And so did a lot of you.the amount of 1970-2000 metal on the Isle of Man during Classictt week was as impressive as it was affirming: LCS, GSX-RS, Fireblades, Z1000s, RC30S, even Fizzies – all Ps-era life was there, and we captured some snap shots of it in this issue (page 45) to whet your appetite for next year. Book your place now, you won’t regret it.
We don’t reckon you’d regret buying a Bimota SB6 either. OK so they can be a pig to work on and you’ll almost certainly need to spend time and perhaps some dosh to set it up as it deserves, but get this: you can have one of these hand-built, Gsx-r1100powered exotic jewels for less than you’d spend on an NSR250 MC28.
Equivalent exclusivity can be two, three, four times as much.a bargain Bimota?you bet ya.alan Seeley lifts the lid on this forgotten Latin gem, and the Rimini firm’s 1980s highwater mark, the FZR1000 poweredyb6, from page 54.
In fact it’s been a good month foral. He’s also powered Budget Dragbike to its first ever race result and fulfilled a life-long dream – riding Sheene’s ’76 Championship-winning RG500.
And it’s all in this issue. Enjoy.
