A lovely and unusual picture I just found on the web - credited to Roger Kirby .
It was captioned as displaying Pat riding the "ex-Geoff Perry TR 750" , which might need to be confirmed although the fairing does carry the name of Len Perry's motorcycles shop. For my part, I had always thought that Pat had first come to the Marlboro series with the "Ron Grant Special" TR750 that he used in the US in his first junior year (1973).
The year is said to be 1974 , does anybody know if this mean the 73/74 or 74/75 winter ? I'm not sure how many times Pat raced there, I'm fairly sure he was there in the 75/76 series with the brand new 500 RG but not sure how many times before . I have not found much infos on the Marlboro series at all on the web.
And the circuit is said to "cross a railroad" which makes me think it must be Wanganui Cemetery ?
Anyway, if our experts from down under would care to comment , please do ! Including you who took part - Murray, Jeff, Stu ?
