Hi All,

Trying to research the history of my TZ350 (ex Donnie McLeod).

Just wondering if anybody has any information on the series?

I know that Donnie was leading the Championship by 20 points with two meetings to go, but do not know the final results of the Championship.

Any information would be greatly received.

Thanks

Dean

After 7 rounds (out of 8), the table read as follows:

1 Donnie McLeod 62pts
2 Roger Burnett 50
3 Graham Young 45
4 Paul Tinker 34
5 Neil Robinson 30
6 Phil Mellor 28

will have to dig out my programme to see if I've got the result of the final round at Brands Hatch

Managed to find the result from the final round and Donnie did clinch the Championship. The Brands result was Neil Robinson, Tony Head, Kevin Mitchell, Donnie McLeod, Graham Young, Roger Burnett. So the top 4 in the Championship was:

1 McLeod 70pts
2 Burnett 55
3 Young 51
4 Robinson 45

Hope that helps

Thank you very much for the information, as I only had the result from round 7. If it is not too much trouble, would it be possible for you to find the results for the whole season? As I am putting together a book of the history of the bike.

I have most of the results for 84 season, but very few for 83 season and only one for this series.

Once again thank you very much.
