RE: Who, What, Where, When?
I can see Suzuki on the tank.
Possibly a 125 ?

But I think he also rode the 50cc too.
Didn't those little 50's have something like 12 or 16 gears ?

Smile  RE: Who, What, Where, When?
He won the last ever 50cc race in 1968 on a Derbi.  He later came back to the TT and won three consecutive Formula 3 TTs in 1979, 80 & 81.  The bike in the pic is the 250cc Production Thompson Suzuki.  I think this must be the bike on which he got 3rd in the 250 Production TT in 1968.

Right, lets see if you can work out who the other guy is Smile

I'm going for Heinz Rosner ?
I know he rode MZ's from the late 50's to the late 60's

RE: Who, What, Where, When?
Well done Sprocket.  It is Heinz Rosner, works rider for MZ.  The bike is an RE350.  I always thought he'd had a lot more starts than he did - 9 in all and only 2 finishes.  His best result was 3rd in the 1968 250 TT.

Both shots are from the 2nd classic parade at the centenary meeting.

Oh Go on, Go on, Go on, Go on!
Dunno about a high note, but I've always liked this (well, since I took it!!) 
It was as close as it looks, too!

It's Laurel Bank - Darren (Or possibly Peter) Creer and Tony Ainley. Honda & Velocette?

Results in 2014 say it was Jimmy on the 350cc, the one year I missed.

Agree with you captain, fabulous shot.
Love watching slow motion videos of that corner.
I'll guess at Martin Jessopp on the BMW ?

RE: Who, What, Where, When?
I hope this won't be my last input and we can continue this properlly at some point but these two are from the archives:  One easy but poignant, the other a bit less easy:

I'm not certain, but the first photo reminds me of Dave Leach. However, we all know who the second pair is. And the location? Keppel Gate methinks. I too sincerely hope this won't be your last input Sticky.

I thought Bob Heath when I first saw the leathers but I don’t think the lid is right.

Also going Keppel gate

RE: Who, What, Where, When?
Re Alfie's post I think it's Dan Kneen, but where on Earth that wall and garden are I had not got a clue, watched two on-board laps with different riders yesterday and still could not work it out, no pavement on left so that cut out most of the Northern section of the circuit, then I looked at the name of the picture file! Captain appears spot-on

RE: Who, What, Where, When?
No fooling the Cap'n ... tis Crosby 2014, my guess was Dean Harrison.
Sticky's most excellent pic i'll pop at 1992 TT, think the 250 race was still called Junior Race back then, 250 machine Yamaha TZ or Honda RS
Rider i'm currently stumped but still digging.

RE: Who, What, Where, When?
The newly promoted Detective Chief Inspector Noakes is right with 1992, the 250 was called the Junior and it's a TZ. Shot is from Keppel Gate.
