Phil Read comes off stage at Stafford show

Phil Read airborne on the 250cc four cylinder Yamaha in 1964

Eight-times world champ Phil enthralled the appreciative crowd with tales from his glittering track career and he really was in a class of his own when racing. Single minded, focused, Phil was never bothered what rival competitors thought of him. It was this dedicated mindset which enabled him to compete for so long at the highest level.

Phil rode his Yamaha RD56 249cc to victory in the 1964 Grand Prix world championship and went on to become the first man ever to win a world title in each of the 125, 250 and 500cc classes. In his career he notched up a remarkable 121 GP podiums.
