For those of you that missed this prestigous event, here or a few pics I took on the day.
My son Gavin with his 1972 Bol'Dor Laverda Jota 1000cc Endurance racer, built by Gavin from a picture in a book of the original. Started after he managed to buy the front drum brake, every part after that was all uphill. He even made the petrol tank and rear seat and tail piece from a flat sheet of allumunium. On the day it was ridden at Mallory park by one of the original Laverda works test riders. This was the first time this bike had been ridden in anger. You could say Gavin was a little anxious at the time the bike was on the track.
This is a photo of Gavin with Mr Piero Laverda the boss and founder of Laverda motorcycles, with the Laverda V-Six racer, the only one ever built.
Famous faces at the event, Mick Grant ex. TT rider in Kawasaki leathers.
