This is Bill Swallow at Ballaugh Bridge racing his Aermacchi in the 2002 Junior Classic Manx Grand Prix.
“ Whilst at school, in 1968 I raced a 500cc Velocette, which I feel off at Goosenecks in front of my mum ! Built my own frame for the Velo in 1971 and kept racing it untill 1975. Bought a featherbed Manx R, chassis and gearbox and raced until 1988. In 1986 I won 1st in the Manx GP on a 350cc Honda and since won 8 more.Won National Classic Bike Championship on the Velocette in 1986. I am still the fastest person ever on the TT Course on 250/350 and 500cc single cyclinder bikes. I always reckoned I rode harder in an open face and goggles-you can get your head down. My Davida Jet is so comfortable, more flexible…the lightness and quality of the leather lining ! “. This image came from www.fottofinders.co.uk
