I knew Micky pretty well and I am trying to put a face to your name but the years don't allow. There was a lad who I think was called Bernard Wilson who raced in the 250 proddies and came in the van with Micky as well. Do you know if he is still about and is ok ? I think he rode in a set of leathers with a different name on them.
I was wondering if that pic was you, I was the new face that would arrive with Mick and Steve (he didnt want to be called bernard...), i met mick at northampton tec col in 79, i wanted to start racing so meeting him was the key, think mick had been at it for a year or so.
I had a white X7, I rode it to northampton then put in that old bedford cf.
Remember when mick made you a trophy after the leaving emery cloth in the port incident, `illegitimsa blahh...`dont let the bastards grind you down', cadwell i think.
Had a good 1st year, usually finished 1st or 2nd novice, managed a top 6 at snett end of the year so got in mcn results....
Bought an LC over the winter, finished 5th in 1st race at snett, poss bfrc meet, mick was winning, think prob 2 or 3 that day.
I didn't go the following week, that fateful day so I wasn't there, i found out from him mum when i called him monday night to find out how it went.
I'm still really good mates with Clifton Tabiner remember him?
Good to make contact agan Stu
