    1979 was the year.
    Silverstone (UK) was the venue.
    The combatants were;
    Kenny Roberts (all hail the King..)
    Barry Sheene
    and the White Knight, Dutchman Will Hartog.
    The race was decided by a coat of paint....

  2. Love old Barry cheekily giving Kenny the bird after he overtakes Kenny and gains first place!
  3. That was great, thanks Paul.

    Wasn't Sheene a character :LOL:
