Lil John Hateley #98 - 60's and 70's

Lil John Hateley made a name for himself with brilliant rides on Triumphs built by his Father,Jack Hateley. The kid grew up in a racing family and took to it with a natural talent that put him up front and winning races with fantastic style and perfect technique. He is still racing ,mainly Triumphs and still winning,seemingly never missing a beat from his early career.
This is what I'm talking about. John throws it into a sticky Ascot corner,hugging the Pole and keeping a hard charging Randy Goss and Steve Eckland both Harley mounted at bay.
Looks like an Ascot Trophy Dash with Nichols and Rockwood on Trumpies and Keeter launching his H.D.
