You could also search this and other forums for Wackett, Brian Wackett etc I did a quick check and many entry's came up

Hi dizzielizzie, this is a nice shot of Brian at the Crystal Palace in September 1971.  He's riding around Marin Carney at North Tower turn.  Brian, who was no slouch, is on the Seeley previously raced by hotshot, John Blanchard.
