Former GP rider and current MXGP commentator Paul Malin visited the legendary Namur circuit and talks about his memories of the racing the event in 1990 and 1991 as a factory Kawasaki rider.
Part 4 – After the arch/bridge there has since been a new recreational development to the right, so a new road has been built. Back when we raced we crossed asphalt there briefly … when we dropped on to the dirt section in 1990 and before, fans could camp in this area. It was insane and added to the atmosphere
Part 6 – After the short climb we went left. Today it is so overgrown, there was even a few homeless / forest people living in tents midway along the long straight. You forget how dark it is along there. My first visit in '90 I came around on Lap 2 Free Practice on Saturday to find @davidthorpe858689 @kurtnicoll Eric Geboers and the late, great Georges Jobé all parked! It was too dusty, and there would be no riding until it was sorted. Turns out we didn't do any more than those 2 laps that day, and the one place you need track time is Namur
See Namur in it’s glory days and watch the 1991 500 GP, including a 19 year old Malin cheered on by patriotic British fans, here:
