    Wow an old post for sure.

    I was at the '88 GNF to spectate, I saw Cam Roos do the business on the FZR400. A guy from my hometown in North Carolina was also racing in the FZR400 class (his name was Nick Waycaster), he got 3rd or 4th IIRC. I vaguely remember a guy named Fabian Cortez doing okay too, and of course Kurt.

    First road racing I ever saw in person, good stuff! Been hooked on the sport ever since that day.

    I also remember one racer who didn't have a left hand, he had rigged up his bike somehow to work the clutch. Inspiring as hell.

    Going back to the original thread, why to histories of the founding of WERA focus on Peter and Patty Frank, and leave out Avrum and Laurel Gudulsky? Ther Franks later bought them out, but they were crucial to the actual founding. Avrum was later killed in that horrific crash at Mosport in 79.

    It was an oversight in the original program article for sure but in anything I've said about our history since I found out about the Gudulskys has included them. Most people who weren't involved in the NE/MA area at the time just never heard of them sadly.
