The nominated rider for the "Ville de Paris" was Thierry Crine IIRC. He was injured at the previous GP ( France ) hence the "TBA" I suppose...

Bruno Bonhuil ( whose usual backer was the "Ville de Reims" ) wasn't a full-time 500cc rider in 92 ( only from 1993 onwards...) according to the jumping'jack website he got this start at Donington as a wild-card due to Alex Barros being injured (?)

I seem to remember that Simon Buckmaster was injured and Terry Rymer rode as a substitute in this race

This web site lists all the riders and the numbers they used throughout the season I have found it to be of help in the past, #41 not listed as used in 1992.

I didn't add the additional riders or non-starters in my programme that year................however I did take a photo of number 41, and here it is - I'm sure somebody will recognise him (it's not Rymer, BTW)

Looks like Raymond Roche at first glance.

I am quite certain that this is the bike that was used by Thierry Crine up to the French GP , with sponsorship from the City of Paris ( Crine had a "high level sportsman" status which allowed him to be a paid employee of said city - probably without doing any real work but that's another issue.. )

I see that the bike in the pic also carries a sticker of the City of Reims which was a long time backer of Bruno Bonhuil ( with a similar "high level sportsman" status...) . So my guess is that it is Bonhuil making this one-off appearance ( he later was a full-time entry in the 500 world championship from 93 to 95 )

Hi
I can confirm He is Bruno Bonhuil. This was the only presence in the 1992 500cc world championship for Bonhuil, when He was called by the team Villes de Paris in substitution of Thierry Crine. In this year Bonhuil raced in the superbike championship with a Ducati. In 1993 Bonhuil bought a ROC-Yamaha and He made a full season in the 500 gp champ but He scored only 1 point at Hockenheim. Regarding Crine, He didn't manage to return after the injury in the last three races of the season. After Donington Park, the team skipped the Brazilian gp in Interlagos. In the last gp of the season in Kyalami the bike was ride by Myke Wilson with the number 60.

Regarding the list at the top of the topic, there is some rider who didn't race: number 22 Simon Buckmaster was injured too and his place on the Padgett's Harris-Yamaha was taken from Magny-Cours by Jamie Whitham with number 61. Jamie was 9th in France with a solid ride and it was the best result of the season for the team. Number 36 Claude Arciero interrupt after the French gp his participation to the championship, I suspect for economical reasons, so He didn't race too in Donington Park. In the list is missing Terry Rymer, who raced with the number 63 on the second Padgett's Harris Yamaha. Carl Fogarty (team MBM, the same of Kevin Mitchell) and Terry Rymer raced with a new prototype chassis built by Harris for the following 1993 season. Maybe Whitham had the new chassis too, but I am not sure..
