The other shame is that there’s no racing at the moment because of the Coronavirus COVID-19 lockdown, so no chance to add to our vast library.
Therefore, we have decided to trawl through our archives and dig out some of those shots that either have never been seen before or simply that rate among our favourites and deserve a second viewing … we are calling it our “Blast From The Past” and we may make it a regular feature, even after this virus thing blows over.
Our aim is not to embarrass anyone and we won’t always feature crash shots, although they often are the most spectacular. We just want you to travel down memory lane with us and maybe crack a smile or two.
Among the photos featured here are a handful of New Zealand road-racing heroes from the 1980s … and not all of them are Kiwis either.
See if you can identify the individuals pictured and perhaps visit us on Facebook to lodge your comments.
