This is Ken Nelson from Consett at Ouston '82 - '83. Ken was a racer in the '60s on an NSU 250 but started racing again in the late '70s on this LC, he was in his '50s when this was taken. He spent the intervening years doing free - fall parachute stuff world - wide, he had great shots of huge link ups over volcano's in Hawaii and iirc he was an instructor at Sunderland Aerodrome ( formerly RAF Usworth ) ,unfortunately I've lost touch with him..a great lad.

Greg

P.S. scanned from an old print, the blue parts appear green but it's a 350LC

A poor quality shot of the previous two riders getting a bit closer than they intended at Oxo Bend, Croft, Jon & Gary who were good mates, both from Consett. This photo was popular with both lads who blamed each other.

Could be Grant Goodings in the middle with the wet suit on. Looks very much like his helmet.

brilliant stuff.  lots off my old pals featured in the 70s  and the 80s.   I have to say what about the 90s.  lots of these guys, me included, had our second (or third) adrenalin fix during the last 25 years.     best forum on the internet btw.
