Hi all - I've been following this bulletin board for a year or so but never posted before.
Many of the old racers are still around and a whole lot rode at Zwartkops two weeks ago - a revival thing. Alan North was there, Rod Gray, Joe van Altena, Les van Breda, Jim Redman, Keith Zeeman, Dave & Robbie Petersen, Paddy Driver, Ophie Howard - all riding. Mike Grant was there, but as a spectator - a roaming goblin hit him on the head with a steel bar a few months ago and he's still recovering. Jimmy Guthrie was also riding - Manx TT winner now resident in Pinetown, son of the other Jmmy Guthrie, who died a month before Junior was born.
I've interviewd and done articles on most of these blokes over the last few years and, funnily enough, have been considering sticking them into a book...
I have pics of most of them, if somebody can tell me how to insert them...
You need a host site for your pics such as imageshack or photo bucket, I use photo bucket and if you go back a few posts you will see how they look. Both are free sites, though I pay due to the amount of photos I post and "bandwidth" I use.
