Thumbs down re Nobby Clark

of all people to fuck with;
Nobby Clark
"For 25 years, Clark was one of the world's leading motorcycle race mechanics. In addition to 17 FIM Grand Prix World Titles, earned in classes ranging from 50cc to 500cc, he won three Daytona 200s, one Daytona 100, four Imola 200s and eight Italian championships working with some of the greatest motorcycle racers in history." and thats what the AMA said about Nobby

Nobby helped 3 of my friends win those world titles Mike, Bazza and Paroni

i hope this snowballs....unfortunately a lot of the big names are no longer with us, but i know they are rolling over in their graves

i'll do my little part.....just took my AMA Race Mechanic's License #0091 down from where its been hanging since '79, with Daytona stamped all over it

think i'll tape it to a brick with a note "We won the Daytona 200 in spite of you assholes.....here's my license, stuff it"

i sincerely hope everyone withdraws their name......

here in SoCal there is more than one person that can cause a stampede...... no, not me, but i know who can

Peter, thank you for bringing this to our attention

Quite an eye opening read from 'another' perspective.
'Nobby' clearly wasn't 'this' guys choice.

my my my....I think I may have finally read a valid explanation of what has transpired. I had read lots of opinions, but was wondering just what the true facts were.

Seems much knee jerking in response to a poorly done press release by the AMA which never revealed the facts.

OK, I'm good with it all now.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
