Jan is quite a guy. (In a paddock full of them..). He's been developing this race bike for a long long time, racing all over Europe and here on the Island. A one man band, doing most stuff himself, like laying down the engine, cold air ducting to his homemade carby, his cute little cable linkage on the front brake, ( copied by many top teams..), and a heap of other stuff.

Good enough for consistent 90MPH laps around the Mountain Course, on his 'slow' engine this year, and a finisher.

I just hope that I have the energy and drive he has when I'm 72 YEARS OLD!
What a guy! Inspiration.
