Post by: dark_knight87 on 18.03. 2008 14:21
Hey chaps,

I'm going on the Mike Hailwood Memorial run on Sunday 23rd March 2008 - Starts at the old Norton factory at Bracebridge Street in Birmingham, then onto Tanworth in Arden (Where Mike is buried): -

The weather is going to be rubbish but hey ho!

Russ.

Russ,

Sitting in Chicago, I'm afraid I can't make it, but thanks for bringing it to my attention. I haven't been a follower of racing, but I looked at the site you included and did some other research on Mike Hailwood. The story of his and his daughter's passing is incredibly sad, so it is good of you and others to celebrate how he lived. I have to admit, I was relieved that a motorcycle was not involved. "Good on ya' mate" for showing his friends and family your respects and for having a good time doing it. Here's hoping for reasonable weather.
