Has anyone seen this photo before. I expect several will recognise the guy at the right hand end of the back row but how about the others?

The old bugger's looking good still, I think he'll be 80 this year. Is it a collection of Sth African and Rhodesian ex-racers ? A couple look familiar...

Is that Bepe Castellani in the front row far right?

You're right although he prefers to call it "the 59th anniversary of my 21st birthday"!

Yes, they're a collection of Rhodie and SA road racers.

On reflection, all the road racers are ex-Rhodies although they live in SA these days.

Just solve it. You've had at least four goes at posting it, and nobody's had a clue.

It's actually Kenny Robas and the one in the middle, front row is Ronnie Amm (brother of Ray). The one on the LH end of the front row is a rider whose name we/ve discussed previously on the 1949 to 1968 thread. Any ideas?

I doubt Rhodie racer would know some of the others as they were probably active well before his time.

Hi
Just thought I would try putting my guess to some of the riders,
I think the rider on the left is Dave (squack) Harriss and the rider hugging Ken is Ophie Howard.

cheers
Peter

Spot on Peter! The front row Left to Right is "Squack" Harris, Charlie Steer, Ronnie Amm, Ophie Howard and Kenny Robas.

How about the back row, you should get at least a couple of them?
