Schwantz dominates in NZ classic action

Former 500cc World Champion takes a clean sweep at Pukekohe Claasic Festival

KEVIN SCHWANTZ has been out in full-on racing action again, taking six wins on the trot on a tricked-up Manx Norton.

The 1993 500GP World Champion raced at the 30th Pukekohe Classic Festival in New Zealand last weekend on the Manx, the first time he has ever ridden a classic race machine.

Schwantz still used the number 34 on the bike, which was retired permanently from the GP world when the Texan retired from racing.
But it wasn't just Schwantz taking part in the meeting other greats at the event included Giacomo Agostini, Umberto Masetti, John Surtees and Geoff Duke.

Makes a poxy show in the middle of winter seem a bit poor by UK standards, doesn't it?
