Castrol 6-Hour Triumph T160, April 10

Triumph Trident T160 castrol 6 hour mick hone

Triumph T160 in the 1975 Castrol 6 Hour. We had to share this shot from photographer Robin Lewis. That's well-known race identity and motorcycle dealer Mick Hone on board, doing the entire race solo - a fairly punishing experience, apparently. He describes it as six hours of craziness and being to reduced to the state of a zombie by the end.

Three T160s were entered that year by the then distributor Peter Stevens and all finished. That year's race was won by Gregg Hansford and Murray Sale, riding a Kawasaki Z900.

There's a detailed 6 Hour web archive here. Pic copyright: Robin Lewis (used with permission).
