He came in 6th in the formula one main race in 1995.
That year I took a trip to his motorcycle shop to see the bike, and it bore no real resemblence to the factory bike.
For a start the original engine had been junked in favour of the YZF750 lump, and the frame and front swing arm were specially made.
In fact, virtually nothing of the original GTS was present.
