Seen at the IOM TT races in 2006, the photos
are of TT racer, Paul Owen's Father, who used to race many
years ago and a big Mike fan. "My brother Steve and
myself started chatting to him last year while we were having
a coffee. He was wearing a pair of Hailwood-Martini overalls
signed by Mike on the brest pocket. He recalled the story
of how Mike gave them to him in 1979 and then duly invited
us back to his son's camper van to see all his photos of
Mike. He then showed us his Honda replica built from scrap
bits and an old 50cc Honda engine. He was more than happy
to put on his crash helmet and pose for photos. He was affectionately
known to his son and pit crew as the "Crazy Frog",
because of his goggles".
This French fan has had a picture of Mike
tattooed onto his left leg.
