I think number 56 might be Richard Rogers or Richard Cutts - both regulars at Snetterton around that time on their Seeley G50's

Myself leading at Russells from Tony Harris, Adrian Godden laying 3rd, a back marker then Trevor Binks in 4th.

The same race as the black and white shot at Riches, Paul Harris seized early on leaving myself and Tony dicing for the lead for the whole race with me taking the win.

Remember it like yesterday but cant remember what I was doing earlier this evening!!

I may be wrong but I think no101 may be a BDS 250,  a two stroke twin possibly based on Yamaha built by Bill Day with input from John Carpenter(Mistral Engineering) raced at MGP by Bill and later by Cliff Gobell, anybody throw anymore light on this ?? 

HI Mick as i remember it John and Bill made the frame to house a two stroke Crecent engine I remember they used it in the Manx one year it wasnt a success so they made the Yamaha based motor still useing the chain drive to the gearbox .Colin Aldridge raced it a few times and thought it handled better than a Yamaha .Bill Day Colin Aldridge John Carpenter Clif Gobell wonderful men    Bill Lawrence

Hi Bill,ah yes of course it was Colin aka "Wobbly" who also raced the BDS, I think on my only visit to LLandow he beat me for the win in 1975, on I think the BDS also !

 

Totally agree with you on that Bill, Colin, John and Cliff were all great guys, miss them all.

Didn't he have a big off at Gerrards (Mallory)? Badly hurt if I recall?

 

Anyway, how is his name pronounced? I remember the commentator at Mallory (Chris Carter I think) saying "Peter Labershockney" :rotfl:

No, it's a real long crank, bought it from Bill Smiths, belonged to one of the lads in his workshop, I eventually had it monoshocked by Harris and had a Spondon disc conversion ( bought that from the late Geoff Johnson ). Trashed it big at Flookborough in '79.

Sometimes it was the only way to get a ride when the 350 class was full.
