Phil Read - 250 cc Yamaha
On 10th.February in this series I posted a picture of Giacomo Agostini on this same corner at Olivers Mount, Scarborough, in 1972.
One of his greatest rivals, and my favourite rider of all time, was Phil Read who was World Champion eight times and also won eight Isle of Man T.T.Races. Phil retired from racing in 1976 but of recent years has began taking part in Classic events and was 70 on 1st.January last. Details of his career can be found on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Read
(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions. This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)
