|Akira Yanagawa was on a Kawasaki ZX-7RR 750 four cylinder bike for '99, '00, & '01. In '02 he is developing the Kawasaki GP bike.|
|John Reynolds on the Red Bull Ducati 996 v twin. He was on Ducati again in '00/'01, John won one of the races at Brands in '00. Plus he won the BSB series in '01. For '02 he is with Suzuki on the GSXR1000.|
Iain MacPherson is Scottish, & did very well in the Supersport class on his 600cc Kawasaki in '99 finishing second. He was on the improved ZX-6R in '00, & '01, but didn't do so well. Ho hum. I'd like to see him win as I have a ZX-6R. Andrew Pitt did win the '01 series on a ZX-6R.
|James Toseland riding the Castrol Honda CBR 600cc in '99. You can see from this picture how hard he is trying it's only practice after all. In '00 he he rode the Honda VTR SP1 twin in the UK. However, in '01/'02 he signed to the GSE Ducati team, & is teammate to Neil Hodgeson in WSB.|
|James haydon is English & rides in the British Superbike (BSB) series. Here he is on the Susuki GSX-R750 four cylinder machine. He switched to the Red Bull Ducati team for '00, & then Virgin Yamaha, but is now involved in the Foggy project.|
Colin Edwards the Third on the Castrol Honda v4 RC45 750cc bike. He won both races at Brands, & took second in the championship. In '00 he rode the new Honda VTR SP1 twin to the title. In '01 he rode well, but had a few problems with the bike early in the season. He is still with Honda for '02.
|Peter Goddard was developing the Aprilia RSV Mille twin. In '00 he had a ride in the British Superbikes, & in '01 he was the development rider for the Benelli Tornado inline triple.|
|Aaron Slight was second to his teammate in both races on the Castrol Honda bike. He rode the Honda VTR SP1 twin in '00, but was very ill for much of the year. They let him go at the end of the season, & he has been doing some touring cars I think?|
|Troy Corser was teammate to Carl, & rode the Ducati 996 in '99. He scored the same number of points as Colin Edwards, but had less wins in '99, & so was awarded third place overall. Troy was on the Aprilia RSV Mille in '00, & '01 It now looks like a contender. He is now in the new Foggy team.|
|Chris The Stalker Walker was second in '99 BSB on the Kawasaki. He got tenth in race one after starting from pit lane. Chris was second again in '00 this time with Suzuki in BSB. He signed to ride a Honda 500cc GP bike for '01, but was sacked half way through the season. Now back in WSB with Kawasaki.|
|Nial MacKenzie three times BSB champion. Here on the Yamaha R7 750cc machine. He finished just behind Noriyuki Haga on the WSB R7 in the Brands races, which is not too shabby. He signed for the INS Ducati BSB team for '00, & partnered Neil Hodgeson. He "retired" at the end of the year. I think he is now helping Foggy with the Patronas bike?|

All these pictures were taken by me during Friday afternoon practice for the '99 Brands Hatch W.S.B. round. They were taken using my trusty old Minolta X700 camera, & either a 210 zoom , or 300 telephoto lens on Kodak 200 ASA film. The prints were then scanned using a Black Widow scanner, & tarted up with Adobe Hotshots 2.0 software. I own the copyright on everything on this page, & if you want to pay me heaps of cash to publish any of it go on make my day. Copying for personal use is fine, but I would appreciate a link, & don't forget to state who has the copyright.
