Does somebody know practice times of the italian MGP rider Giuseppe Baracchetti?
Thanks,

He was a non-starter

Hi Chris!
But did he practice?
Thanks,

Marco

No,he was unable to find a suitable machine, and as far as I know he never travelled to the Isle of Man

We noticed from the official programme that he was entered on a Yamaha 1000.

As Yamaha don't make a 1000 twin we assumed that his entry had been incorrectly accepted on an R1, D'oh!

We did wonder if he had actually travelled all the way over, only to realise the problem in scrutineering bay?!!?!?

I happened to know that he had a R1,and he assummed that they were eligible for the Manx, luckily I realised what he had done, and was able to stop him in time.
