Happy memories

Dear CR

Thank you for publishing the photo of Bryan Rust and I on the KGB Imp, in issue 201, it brought back many happy memories of Snetterton’s Race of Aces in 1973.

Here’s another picture of Alan partnering Bryan Rust on the Imp-powered machine, this time at Silverstone in 1974.

The outfits in hot pursuit were number two George O’Dell and Bill Boblison on a 750cc BSA, number three a 750cc Trident crewed by R Dutton and T Wright, 15 a 998cc Rhombus Imp ridden by L Langridge and L Evans and, finally, 11 Chris Nickells (who, like me, still competes in Belgium with the Belgium Classic Club) and his passenger Jim Widdas, on a 970cc Komnick.

Alan Bedford, Sutton Bridge.
