Scunthorpe, March 2011

While preparing the post about Drakey and New Zealand flat track, I combed the old Sideburn blog for a shot of his leathers, and the photo above appeared.

It's the Thunderbike podium, from March 2011. Boastie and Jackie (who started the whole UK flat track scene) are on the left. Steve Coles won (riding a mutant Honda 650 Bros twin), that's Drakey in his magnificent leathers and me in third, with an eight-year-old Max in his overalls.
