Loads of pics coming out of Silverstone of the RDLC Cup bikes. Soooo cool to see a row of thirty identical LC's.

Sorry but I have only just found this old thread.

I thought that you might like a few photos from the race weekend Last year! 2015.
I was lucky enough to be invited to ride in the Pro-am revival race, as I used to race a fair bit back in the 1980's.
All the riders invited we're either Ex British Champions or runners up,
so it was a good field of riders.
Unfortunately the race wasn't recorded for television, so here are a few photos that my mates took,
I was no.5 (John Corrin).

http://s695.photobucket.com/user/peddro ... t=3&page=1

I qualified 4th for the race in dry conditions, but I crashed out of the race while in 4th position in very wet conditions, never mind.
The race took place in very wet conditions and only about 12 finished out of the 24 starters, this was due to the conditions and not the tyres!, as I think any tyre would have let go.

It was a great weekend, catching up with old mates we raced against all those years a go.
We may be older but still the same fire, & know one wanted to be last!


As for 2016 the race was again at Silverstone as a support race for the Moto GP weekend
I was lucky enough to be invited back again, this year I qualified in 5th position on a damp track, and this year managed to finish the race in 5th position on a very wet track again, it's England & it rains!

It's probably the best school type reunion you could ever go to see blokes from back in the 1980's. & chatting like it was yesterday.

Will try to post some photos from this years race later in the week.

Best regards
Johnny C.
