Surely this Team must be the only surviving factory team who are still friends, still get together regularly, and still good mates after 60 years?
The Ariel Team of 1960 was Ron Langston, Gordon Blakeway and Sammy Miller and this factory team ruled the world back in 1960!
On 2nd May Ron, Gordon and Sammy got together at the Museum in the New Forest. Ron, ex GP rider, had a lifelong ambition to have a ride on the V8 Moto Guzzi.
Sammy ensured Ron’s ambition was realised and it turned out to be a great day for Ron riding not just the V8 but numerous other bikes from the Museum.
On a number of occasions, Gordon, Ron and Sammy were also members of the British International 6 Days Team.
