ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The third series of the Road Racing News podcast begins with your's truly and Steve's views on what would be our ultimate pure road racing team, from years gone by and modern times.

We also focus on the moved back Spring Cup meeting at Scarborough, that is now hoped to take place from the 22nd-23rd May.

There's also of course the bamboozoler quiz question and in general keeping positive vibes going!

Everyone will welcome back to the roadracing years podcast and then see you're are editor of road racing us to curat UK and, as always, enjoying by me, Dad Steve Rowt.Hi, everybody, well thought for this week's podcast. That there Chris Steveon what he considers his ultimate road racing team. Now we lost recently.On Social Media I've asked races, fans, etc. Lots of great opinions andI thought you'd be something just a bit fun to us us your opinion. So you've been bolding the spot for over forty years. Really as afan, as actual and FAMA photographer, I don't know both its top forSoccerfe you lead. I try and take a few pictures for your Steve inthat's at up professed to be professor. No, no, what you usean some good shots? Yeah, a try, but but against the toplands and they're like Oh yeah, yeah, you know, I respectant alley asregards modern day seam manager. There's a lot of good top manages outthere, but scenes are from your chaff. We call go for Claud padget cladpatchet. Know, so to all class are racism. I'm run aboutthe roads here. Yeah, so then clad clap runs a takeship, buta fair ship, and none of the all the all the top riders havenothing but praise for him. So that that means a lot. And mechanic. Well, there's lots of mechanics, but one mechanic that stands out prettymuch for me. It's Paul Thompson, Tomoreus is not uneasy, a niceperson, but is exceptional at his job and he does, you know,just B SB as well as on the road. No disrespect to all ofmcadley's Goatsak at or what they do. Oh I've got the high streek actorum. Yeah, has regard for Raders well, for on the roads. The internationalswere talking about yere at the present...

...moment in Sim if I could havefree you have free right? Okay, well, I think I have inthis is today and today. Yeah, they'd have to be Peter and Michaeland and Dean, Dean Irison. Yeah, that'll be something to that be afantastic to don't get me wrong. There's there's make a good, goodtop road. Risk is there? Yet? Then three the present moment in terntillstand out quite a bit for me. No disrespect. So any of theother riders, or were there the role brilliant riders? As regards savedfrom the S and the S and Nan's and NANCE's? Well, that's fairtyyears. I mean which which decade you want to go then? and S, S, s and eight as well. It's got to be, Joey.Oh yeah, no, it was. But there's a lot of good radas does those, those a lot more adders doing the doing the big, big, big roads means. Then then there is now, let methink, they think, sadly, some of our even movies anymore. Yeah, fortunate million, the S and the eight S. Steve is lat saves. Well, yeah, yeah, fine, I guess Philip mccallan film, mccawon year. I mean don't there's a lot of adders that he couldpull there. I mean Joey, with no disrespect to all diveral races,was a league apart, like a bit like, yeah, what not?Bit like Mike Kill Wood was the same money and it was just before John'sTam really ill, the seventy eight Y...

...and yet and yeah, yeah,and then John came into his tow into his own Danny. So I've gotit's in them, in them specific decades really also got to mention it allbefore. John, use us, David Jefferies, will David Jeffers. Yeah, well, that they go again. You say that there's you know,there's there's this, quite this, quite a lot, really, hmm.But that's that. Yeah, I could really if I could, if theythe term and they wrote every single thing down and you took one point fromanother point from another point. But as Mattam and a very busy person inthe same as yourself. Yeah, so I haven't got the haven't got theTam to do all that. But that's off the top of the eight.is another one. Feeling if you could have one side car team which wasrunning the Syco with the driver and the passenger, but from Modern Day Basil. It bare chills in the in the in the twenty first two tens away, twenty ten. Yeah, but but if it was still far, wasn'tit? That to be molly and probably down sale and Dane Sale, butalso good dis same is old to Nick Crow should mentioned. Well, yeah, well, Nick, Nick, Nick Crows. NANCE's one Ay and Iwas so two thousands. Yeah, but it's it was. It was intothe nuances. When I was a started racing. It was it so tothousands, because he's still the fastest one round all his mountain age. Yes, so he's twelve years. So so yeah, yeah, Nick Crow,you know. But going back to the S S, specially the s,the s was the La for me on the roads. I suppose any waslike Dick Graefley, and yeah, it was Dickreasely, of it would benot a bit jock sailer in the Johnson and mean there was up. Therewas really, really good. And also we had the way goes, though. Yeah, there was to stop set...

...it, Steve Webster, it didto take a one. Yeah, and is it one star? One,though, one about the regular? Yeah, but there was so many the soanywhere. That's sucks. So add pick any else. So yeah,I mean for me it's hard to see. You to be objective, but Ithink if I was poshed, I think one of the outs. Yeah, have to be joyed it. This would be from years gone by andI'm saying now. Yeah, it has to be Joey, and I thinkis a simply because he also easy on his day. was was M vable. Well, he did did this ad is still did the pairfect lap promcoming some paradel. They too vous until we are small, faster than bouncinga Rosses onsto mob Duk. Yeah, they say it was the pair fetlap. I Don'ink for Modern Times. Yeah, it's got to be akey. I've been kicking my cold day. You, you can't argue. Ithink it's a result in it is. Yeah, I mean on the bigon the big bakes. Yeah, if he sat going into the Middlewareby will William done not for me would be definitely any bringing William Dunlop in. Then you bring in Lee Johnson in at there's there's so many that arethat are in that ballpark. Ay, and even then he sheolts his greatestaddress of modern time. Jamescuton as well on the six hundred. Yeah,yeah, jams jims would have gone a long way. It did go along, we did it did. I've got that wrong there. Yeah, butthis it's just what happens in road racing and it you know, it's justone of the downsides of producing really, but anywhere will go. It's abit positive. But yeah, I guess worry. We would be an interestingup for you. Have enjoyed our opinions there and it's stout too to thenews that the spring cups been moved to the twenty two, to the twentyfive and May. Yeah, so that's...

...something a few ways. It's onlytwo weeks, or so we thought, because obviously so weeks, ten workingdays because of recent government bringing down deep stages of lockdown, down back forso when we get into that, to that one, we're ether in sortof free and then that means to can have a crowd of four thousand.So fingers cross. Fingers Cross for that, providing it don't go up again orwhatever. But and people are getting back stated and Minimam get vaccinated nextsat day. So that's good. What was going to say. So I'mreally really looking forward to it. That the the organ as is all thenew the new owners of it is Andy and Wendy here's they deserve to havesome massive crowds. Great. It's just like every book crowds and need toget for mets in and we he snay some decent weather and everybody turns openas a right good crack a and I think everybody deserves it, all thespectators, the teams, to Raders, everybody.
