Steve Bonsey running the famous 80Y. Wayne Karcich wrote to say 'Bonsey had a contract to ride an Aprilia in the 250 class. He showed up for testing in Jerez I believe it was and found out his sponsors were defunct. KR is his manager and they are currently still looking for a ride. It's a joy watching him ride flat track. He is the most talented young rider I had seen at his age when he left for Europe in 06. If you ever get a chance to see him race I highly recommend it. We are lucky out here, he's from Salinas and we get to watch him quite a bit. He was amazing at Gene's race in Vegas.'

Pegram's 1000cc Ducati. It ain't pretty but it worked first time out. That is incredible.
Here is a very leftfield report of the race from Randy Krumpledick.
