Look at how Dongington Park has changed in 34 years! Not to mention 'young' Paul...!

Take a look at these 2 photos - look at the pit-lane wall!! Nowadays we have to clear (the high wall- and even higher fencing!) for a race start

wall in 1984!  
How times have changed! 
Paul Boulton, (the 'young' chap at the front in these pictures!) who looks after this gorgeous Suzuki RG500 for Steve Wheatman was at CRMC Donington Park on Saturday so rider Danny Webb (shown pushing from the back in the modern picture!) could get some on-track practice in preparation for the Classic TT adventure later this month. 
 
The bike sounded phenomenal and we wish Danny and the team all the best for the Classic TT, where they'll be hoping for a record-breaking ride - good luck guys!
