Including a memorable thrash round on that Yamaha GTS Hub centred steered thing. Possibly the biggest barge to ever go round the course???

Though I stand of course to be corrected on here   Smile Smile

I'd forgotten about Steve's past record, he must be one of the contenders for this.

Dave Leach on the 80's ZX10 and Parrish on a FJ1100 back in the proddy days must be up there in the barge pilot dept, I also have a recollection of Nick Jefferies on either/both a BMW K100 and a jelly mould CBR1000 .. i think.

Nick did race a flying brick in the proddie race - got pics somewhere.  I realise that this is drifting off topic but Elmar Geulen must get the award for the 'biggest barge'.  Anyone remember what he raced?  No prizes it's just for fun!
