2006 UK Rotary Race Winner
« on: August 08, 2006, 01:33:20 PM »
I was at the Milton Keynes bike show at the weekend and a guy walks up to me wearing a Norton F1 Sport T-shirt. He said that he races a red Norton F1 sport and had raced it recently at Brands Hatch! Fairly sure he said it was a classic race (1992 eligible?) and that he took the win...
Well, it seems this guy is for real... I found this…
CRMC - Brands Hatch - Sunday 9th July 2006

I still havnt figured out who he is yet though.

Edit- found another picture...
