    Hi
    yes is the answer to your question and Benelli enthusists in 2002 (I think) were treated to a comercial calender IOM with Joey on the front riding the Benelli and repeatedon the inside the club bought all the remainder stock but have no stock left now. Just in case any other classic folks are viewing.Benellis have raced in the IOM TT and GP after the factory pulled out inc 2cs, 750 SEI and 250 fours the last 254 with Glen English on board and the not forgetting the six ridden by Keith Martin. There was to be 900 Tornado racer appearing at the TT about 6 years ago but the club had to turn down support re the team because of financial restraints.

    Italian's at the TT

    sadly the factories don't seem interested in their history - Ducati won't provide a bike for Dave Hailwood to ride at this years Mountain Centenary, let lone let his Dad's old racer out of the museum. So how about a Paso'esque 250/4 being paraded? Just need Kel Caruthers!

    Just checked my diary (honest) and was watching near Brandish but have no recollection of the Benelli. Was probably hung over as it was the week before I moved to Australia .. The first time !

    Hi
    This years TT Parade will see Kel Caruthers riding, but sadly on a Yamaha celebrating their 50 years of racing. Repeated diplomatic attempts have been made to get the Benelli factory to be represented at the TT. The TT organisors were informed of the possible attendance as early as Oct last year that Benelli may attend but the factory will not even answer mails from either the Dutch or English Benelli clubs re Pesaro or the TT. They do not seem interested its very frustrating and very bad PR, unless they like making there own mind up rather closer to the dates.I will be contacting Kel Caruthers by mail and hopefully meeting him at the TT The comunication from the factory seems patchy and they maybe have already contacted him.How do celebrate 100 years at Pesaro without Benellis only living World Champion well only they know that

    Keith Martin's racing Sei

    Keith Martin tells me he raced the Sei in 1975 (although that pic is in a Mick Walker book saying it was 1976)
