Video: Dave Lawson – His story
If ever you wanted to form a picture of a dyed-in-the wool, salt-of-the-earth motocross fan, Dave Lawson might just fit in the frame perfectly. The Englishman has been going to motocross GP races for a number of decades now, and he has hoisted banners for a number of world champions, from Dave Thorpe to Ben Townley and others.
Dave was a regular and welcome guest in our Vangani Racing camp in 2002, when the team had a scintillating year with teenage riders Ben Townley, Tanel Leok and Tyla Rattray making huge waves int he 125cc world championship series. Ben was a great fan of Ben Townley, but supported all our riders.
