The Wild man of Grasstrack

A big thanks to Peter Dulake, former passenger to Jez Phillips and later Roger Measor, for lending me his scrap book full of photos and press clippings.  Jez and Pete burst onto the sourthern Grasstrack 1000cc R/H sidecar scene in the mid-seventies, qualifying from novice to expert in next to no time with their dynamic riding style and taking the western winner title in 1977, the duo only raced for a few years but left quite an impression, got some great comments when i posted a picture of theirs on the memories of grasstrack page.
