Can anyone confirm or deny? Phillip Island 1990? Broke a fairing stay coming down and went on to win?
Yes he did and ended up with Stephen and the twins rather larger than normal. I remember he broke the fairing when he came back down onto the bike, I thought he was going to be black flagged as it was hanging off. Always liked Wayne, very gritty rider, who literally had very BIG balls that weekend. (I have a pair of his Rothmans kushitani gloves (he's wearing Nankai in this pic) that I bid on and won at the riders for health auction with Randy. there made of kangaroo leather and have very little padding unlike modern gloves)
