Kim Newcombe

My father loaned me this dvd about Kim Newcombe and his racing in the 500 gp in 1973 on the Konig racer that he built himself,he,s not a rider i knew much about but it is a great watch and the footage of the races and paddock is amazing .after watching it the first time i went straight back to the beginning and started again.highly recommended.

ducati 916
