    NZ 1981 Castrol 6 Hour - Katanas do battle

    Coverage of the 1981 New Zealand Castrol 6 Hour production race. Features Dave and the late Neville Hiscock on the E27 Katana 1100SXZ vs. Mal 'Wally' Campbell on the Honda CB1100R. Rare footage of the "Wire-Wheel Katana" as Kiwi's colloquially refer to them, doing what they were built to do.

    No problem Paul. Katana production racing vids from back in the day are as rare as unicorn turds. So when you stumble across one, you share. I remember watching this very Kat (Wellington Motocycles) being raced at Pukekohe in a 3 hour production endurance race in about 1982.

    Yeah, things were a little bit different back then. There is a photo that does the rounds taken at the 1982 Castrol 6 Hour here in Oz and there are blokes standing around bikes in pit-lane wearing thongs, shorts and tee shirts. Safety first eh? They were safety thongs so no probs there. Rools, wee don need nor stinkin' rools!
