Laconia 6/82 # 43 Mike Baldwin
Team Escargot / Thad Wolff #278 6/81 ==Thad Wolff #37 6/82
Dumb question and I confess ignorance on the subject, but was there any harley xr's running in those days?
Gene Church rode this XR based Harley Owners Group sponsored Tilly tuned hammer @ Laconia 6/84 battle of the twins.
Who's in the freight train?
# 99 WHO DAT?
#31 in the lead should be Cook Neilson on The California Hot Rod, or Old Blue, depending on who's telling the story :)
#21, don't know of the top of my head. It's a BMW though.
#163 is probably Reg Pridmore. Unless that's #63, then it's Steve McLaughlin. But the helmet and leathers look like Reg.
I don't know that one. Dr John?
31 = overdog
#99 Dr Johns Team Moto Guzzi. Rider could be Doug Braunek.
If you remember how those guys put that bike together, and the fact that Cook Nielson had almost no road racing experience (he had been a drag racer before that), I would have said underdog - that they did as well as they did is a miracle.
The engine was built with help from a lot of Cook's drag racing POCs - not from high tech stuff from Italy.
Roberto before he went to Honda
Roberto after going to Honda
Now that you say that. I think 99 was Doug.
And it wasn't a Ducati that prompted the comment "We ain't cheatin' enough"
Roberto's new number and Vance&Hines sponser. 7th superbike finish Laconia 6/83
Another (more) road racing freight train....
Not Superbikes but same era
Who's #267 Ducati photo?
A few Guzzi's too.
I vaguely recall they called it overdog themselves?
Ferracci brought these beauties to laconia.Doug Polen # 23. and was it Pascal Picotte #34?
