2016 Island Classic, Phillip Island, Australia

The 2016 Island Classic is a race meet at Phillip Island, Australia, for pre 1990 bikes. The event includes the International Challenge, a race for period 5, Forgotten Era (bikes manufactured between 1973 to 1982). The race is a teams race of 10 riders per team with teams from Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA & Ireland.

I was fortunate enough to get a media pass allowing access to the infield where I spent a day taking photos. This sequence is from race 1 of the International Challenge and shows Paul Young (Australia) # 96, losing the rear end of his 1977 TZ 750 Yamaha exiting Honda corner. The crash happened on the first lap of the race and Paul was in 7th place at the time. The leading bike, # 86, is the 1294 cc Irving Vincent Black Lightning.

Great pics

But honestly I'm more jealous of the venue. I can only manage to get down there once or twice a year

Thumbs up Excellent

This is my pal Dave Crussell and his wife Lorraine, he is the captain and organiser of the US team. Known Dave for many years, he is the bloke that loaned me the H1R and the H2R which I raced at Laguna Seca in an AHRMA meeting in 2004.

This is also the same chap I bought my H2R Kawasaki from last year, to see what machines this couple have stashed at their home in Pleasanton CA is completely bewildering.

I also look after this bike when he races the Classic TT in August, you can see the Three Legs of Man sticker on the seat.

Some excellent pix, thanks for sharing.
