Keith, used to live near me in Cambridge until I moved. I haven't seen him since the Newmarket club reunion dinner a few years back.

 

Throughly nice guy. (emotionless)

Correct Robin :clap: @ Brands bottom of Paddock Hill, sadly where Lance came to grief the year before, do you know why Keith Tyler got to ride the Vincent as it was at the time & still is owned by Lance's widow?

Hi, i'm new to this forum.. i may of been better off starting a new thread for this, rather than hijacking this one, so apologies if some of you think this - but , i'm currrently trying to find some photos of my dad (Dave Raybon) from when he was racing, preferably from the 1981 formula 3 TT. He was running number 69, Grasmere Yamaha tz250. Seemed the best place to ask considering the thousands of photos that are on here.. :)

Thanks, Ian

Keith was a friend of the Capoons and his widow asked Keith to race the machine for her in Lances memory.

Hi Ian, I remember your dad Dave at meetings during the late 70's/early 80's.

 

Did he have a TZ750 back then? the last time I saw him he crashed at Croft and I think he was ok but I never really saw him again after that.

 

No pictures I'm afraid but certainly memories of him at Cadwell and Croft

As he was the winner of the '79 Senior MGP Newcomers Race, I reckon the best chance would be an old copy of the TT special from '79 if anyone has one?

One of those East Anglian airfield circuits that popped up in the late 70's/early 80's, Waterbeach? 

 

18 - Kevin Wrettom? the leather look like his. The bloke in front of him no. 29 appears to have a "V" on the back of his so I'm going to take a wild guess at Mick Quaife.

 

Number 5 looks like a big chap judging by the way the rear suspension is compressed :)

 

When I see a photo like that they all look so familiar as I probably saw many of them many times at meetings I rode at but I can not remember who they are now.

Not Kevin, but Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire is correct, 1977.

Gold dust Tony - hang on to 'em! I got a couple from 75, 76 and 77, but not complete sets (some are a bit fragile, they must have used crap paper in '75!).

 

Some time back, the son of Jeremy (Monty) Montgomery-Swan, posted a request on a website, for any information, photos or anecdotes about his late Dad. As most will know, Monty lost his life in the 1978 Ulster GP when Giles (his son) was only one year old. Well I found a picture in the '77 (MGP) TT Special of Monty and his then wife, holding Giles as a babe in arms in the warming-up area, and by coincidence, I was sitting on the bike behind! I contacted Giles and sent him a scan of the photo as well as the original cutting, for which he was understandably very grateful. I was so happy to help, as it obviously meant a great deal to him. I was on chatting terms with Monty and found him to be a very nice chap and he fitted in well with the paddock community, despite being apparently wealthy due to his insurance business. Although he was new to racing, he was very enthusiastic and far removed from the toff some might have perceived him to be.

i have spare copy of the TT special MGP edition for 4th Sept 1979 which has the report of the 500cc  race won by your Dad Dave.

 

It has the whole race report and on the inside of the back page a photo.

 

If you can PM your address to me I will gladly let you have this copy.
