    Ah, Amaroo Park with it's dirt and grass pit lane and bugger all run-off areas, when bikes were made of steel and riders were even tougher! Good one Darryl.

    Cheers.

    This rider looks like a lady. Does anyone know about this rider? I couldn't understand what the narrator was saying in English.

    I have often wondered if the number 6 Rod Cox Kat is the one i own as it is a ex JCW Rod Cox Kat. All i now is he won the Adelaide Hub 300 on it i already new it was his old race bike but Jeff Cliffton from Suzuki Aus confirmed this one day when i was trying to buy a flywheel for it and he told me he could get but it would have to be made 3 months later tada it turned up he told me all the Kat flywheels were changed to a smaller unit so the scrutineers didnt no that that wasnt the original flywheel. Cheers Murf.

    Came across some info on Rod cox in a old Revs Mag.
    Pirelli Three-Hour Production Race
    Rod Cox [30] on the Campbelltown World of wheels Katana ,
    headed the 750 class runners
    with 1min 22.51 Lap.

    Cox crashed on the fast left handed
    under Dunlop bridge "the back tyre just let go"
    said cox later ,nursing a painful left shoulder,
    adding it was his last race on Pirelli tyres. He
    claimed the Pirelli tyre fitters had given him a "Standard "
    120-90 instead of an SP version, Asked what he intended to do, Cox replied: Run Dunlops!

    Hiscock {1} gave the Katana 1100 it's world debut win.The 750 a month earlier.
