Siverstone it was Ian, at Copse. Just our luck to be marshalling that day on that corner.
It is true about the sidecar family - you can stop racing but you can never, ever leave!

I think he sold it to Ray Towse. Don't know what happened to it after that. I will ask Mick Staiano, who use to sponsor Mal White, if he has any pictures.
So how long have I had these voices in my head, I hear you ask?

I remember Derek Blackbourn racing a new Windle 700 Yamaha outfit in '82 (short wheelbase) ......... got a couple of nice pics of it at Oulton :)

Mal's bikes were always well turned out and called the TRIFLY with a dragon fly type logo with 3 pairs of wings :)

I think Ken Graham is correct, I raced with Derek late 70's - early 80's and the name does strike a chord.
Anyhow since 1957
