Multi-class bike racing at 2021 Hailwood Trophy at Goodwood
« on: October 22, 2021, 02:14:20 pm »


From the blurb:

No Goodwood event is complete without some motorbike racing, and the 78th Goodwood Members' Meeting was topped off by a top quality race for the Hailwood Trophy.

A multi-class race the Hailwood Trophy featured a class for 250cc and 350cc grand prix bikes and another F750 bikes, and the battle for victory turned out to be between bikes from both classes.

This full race will be live on YouTube for six weeks after which it will join Goodwood’s incredible 30-year motorsport archive available exclusively to GRRC Members and Fellows. Join the world’s most passionate motorsport community here: https://bit.ly/3aLve91

That is pretty much what we have had at Killarney for years already , it certainly makes for interesting racing where you have 125 GP bike that relies on insanely high corner speed and something like a Guzzi , Katana etc which has vastly different lines through the corners . Good fun  :thumleft:

Except that there was more TZ350's in this race than in the whole of Africa put together. :thumleft:

What wonderful little machines these are, just another reason to love Yamaha.

One has to watch something like this to understand Yamaha's contribution to the motorcycle world.

True that.
But then one lone manufacturer never could tick all the boxes.
Which is also why you ventured into gsxr`s and 701`s.

I would love to have a TZ350G/H , but they are very scarce here . The thing is that classic racing is very big in Europe with some of the bikes being remanufactured , one company in the UK makes replica Manx Norton engines , another manufactures replica MV's , and even replica TZ frames to take LC engines and for Altie , Suzuki XR69 replicas are big business . The UK have a motorcycle industry we can only dream of .
