Ago and Read Brands Hatch 1973 I think

Spotted this great shot on the net of Ago and Phil Read on the grid captioned Brands Hatch 1974.., although the forum it came from thinks 1973 as Ago was on the Yamaha by 1974. Barry Sheene's bike is to Ago's right....,Will Hartog in the background behind the Mechanic
Interesting forum on motorcycle racing 1969-1990 http://forums.autosport.com/topic/10...gia-2/page-399

Brian its true the photo must be from 1973.
Ago rode the Yamaha in 1974 and Bonera was than Read's team mate at MV.
But thank You for posting the photo which I haven't seen before.

Ago and Read look so young don't they?...,and yes it cannot be 1974..,must be 73.

First race meeting for me was the Race of the Year at Mallory Park in 1974, Phil Read and Bonera were on the MV`s, Ago and Kenny Roberts were on the Yamaha`s
The Race was won by Sheene on the Suzuki
Seem the remember Ago being back on the MV in 1976 (late meeting at Brands on a 350?) and then he was entered in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in 1977 aboard a 500cc Yamaha, the first mainland GP after the Isle of Man was dropped from the world championships

Great find Bev.
Yeah it's definitely 73......here is Ago 1974 with 'old' team-mate 'Read' beside him...,along with Patrick Pons.

Very nice pics Brian, but I think the Pons picture refers to Patrick Pons the French rider aboard the Sonauto Yamaha, Sonauto being the French Yamaha importers, Sito Pons the Spanish rider campaigned in the Grand Prix`s between `81 and `91
