Can anyone recognise these two sidecar competitors?

All is know is that the negs are marked up Cadwell Park 1977. It is likely to have been a National or International meeting.

The first one looks like the driver has "den " on his leathers and is wearing specs so i'll go for Dennis Bingham.

Unfortunately not, the negatives, which came to me from the late Manx Radio's Peter Kneale. are only marked 'Cadwell Park 1977'. It is likely to have been a televised meeting, Peter was the commentator for The World of Sport meetings around that time. Other negatives from the same meeting show Sheene, Hennen, Ditchburn, Grant, Potter etc.
Hope this helps!

If Hennen is listed i´m sure he only rode there once at the 77 International

Found a name of Leif Auresol in some paperwork - not a name I recognise, any information out there? Nationality?
Just thought; hope it is not a nasty nom-de-plume!

Have found 2 programmes from 1977 where Pat Hennen is listed, in April 23/24th meeting, No6 is listed as Derek & Peter Bayley riding a 750 Yamaha, the second, September 17/18th No6 is listed as Swedish Leif Aurosell with Soren Nylund in the chair, riding a 680 LGMV-Konig. Looking at the picture, the position of the drivers arms suggests that this is the Konig of Aurosell. Hope this is of some help.

The routing of the exhaust and the huge radiator intake suggests Konig
