Kiyonari vs Mallory - BSB 2007 by Toby-1-kenobi Kiyonari vs Mallory - BSB 2007 by Toby-1-kenobi
This was one of the toughest weekends I have ever worked.

Another friend of mine and everyone else in the BSB Paddock died. Ex-R6 Cupper Ollie Bridewell was killed instantly in a horrific smash and will be sorely missed.

I feel terrible that I don't have a photogrpah of Ollie racing that I could put up here so instead I took the best shot I could of the current champion and dedicate this shot to him.

RIP Ollie, you've left a really big hole with us mate.

Excellent shot here, loving that angle. :) Wouldn't bet against Kiyo with the lead he's got (though I AM rather biased in that statement. B-))

Anyway, this is a lovely tribute. Ollie'll be missed muchly by us all. Poor lad. :(

Superb clear shot! Love the clarity! :+fav:

It's sad about Ollie. The first I heard of it was when we were sat opposite the pits on raceday and they wheeled his bike out onto the track. Devastating :(
