INSIDE MARIA COSTELLO’S WOMEN ONLY TRACK




Squash Falconer has climbed Aconcagua in Argentina, summited Cho Oyu in Tibet. She once rode a motorbike to France, scaled Mt Blanc and then flew from the summit, all in a normal day for Squash! Her numerous adventures often involve bikes, but they’re usually a bit more off-road orientated, so it was about time she hit the track.



Here are her impressions after heading onto the famous Donington Park circuit in Leicestershire with racer Maria Costello and 50 other women on a BMW Track Day.

A LAP OF HONOUR FOR DÄHNE






The 2016 Classic TT saw Helmut Dähne  reunited with his BMW R 90 S for a lap of honour, 40 years after winning the Production TT. The Classic TT not only celebrates recent victories but also the most spectacular accomplishments of the past. At this year’s meet-up of two wheel legends, this year we looked back to 1976. This was when Helmut Dähne and Hans Otto Butenuth won the 1000 cc class of the Production TT on a BMW R 90 S. Since then, Dähne and his teammate Butenuth – who passed away in 1997 – have belonged to the exclusive group of riders able to enter their names in the winners’ list of the iconic Isle of Man TT. Now 71-years-old Dähne, returned to the scene of his great triumph at the 2016 Classic TT. 40 years after his victory, he was able to ride his original BMW racer around the Isle of Man – this time by way of a lap of honour, not as fast as in 1976 but undoubtedly to the applause of thrilled spectators once again!
