Revealed: Philip Neill’s 1987 GP bike restored
Philip Neill has had his 1987 bike restored from when he contested the Irish 125cc GP at Killinchy, the 125cc Suzuki looks in mint condition after a bit of work.
“I went on to compete in various GP’s across Europe over a 10 year period but never made the opportunity to do a full season which is my biggest regret in racing. I scored a best result of 9th in a Grand Prix race which doesn’t sound like much but just qualifying for a 125cc GP during the late 80’s was an achievement with over 100 riders trying to make it through each weekend and it was down to 1 x fast lap time to make it through or not. That race is one of my better memories”, Neill recently told us about that race.
