The only Greeves (and only British 250) rider was committee-member Dick Faggetter on his 250 MX4. The opposition was mainly large four-strokes and Dick fought bravely to put up a good show. In fact he rode so hard that out of the 3 crashes I saw all weekend, every one involved Dick – he’s not called ‘Dangerous’ Dick’ for nothing!
Your Chairman made himself useful holding a flag on one of the corners and acting as Dick’s personal fitness coach(?). Judging by the interest shown by the mainly car-orientated crowd, it has certainly proved a popular addition to an already very popular event.
