Hi, i am on the search of some posters or copies of the following GP's that my father John Sweet did during 65-66. Sadly he lost almost all of his memobilia in the heatwave of 76 when his workshop went up in smoke.

I would like to find info and posters on the following. I am more than happy to pay for copies of posters etc.

1965 GP West German Nurburgring 7th. Number 11
1965 GP France 10th i think.
1965 GP Spain Mont Juich Park crashed after clipping a straw bale. (sorry if spelling is wrong)
1965 TT IOM 25th after several stops and only front brake working Number 48

1966 GP West German Hockenhiem
1966 TT IOM crashed Bungalow, did not race. Number 47?
NO other GP's that i know of.
1966 Mettet, Flying race only to pull out with boiled brakes whilst in second on the leaders tail, dont know date.

Any help would be great, i have found my fathers 65 GP frame on ebay and wish to build a new one to the same spac as his first GP.

Here a couple of pics of my dad, 1965 outfit first then 66. Please feel free to look at the other pics on my flikr page.
