Hi good people I have been given over 100 photos of 78/79 World Mini Days and Indian Dunes and Saddleback and more and trying to identify this young guy who was riding for Pesky Canuga Park on Suzuki, he was with my mate Australian DG Mini Star Derrim Porter.

Any help would be appreciated.

PS anyone know who the boss of JT Racing was in that Time?

John Gregory was the owner of JT and that sure looks like him in the photo.

Okay guys. Haven't posted for several years. My opinion from memory is Gary szygali misspelled the name in sure. Remember an article from mini-cycle mag he was about my age. 1978, 9 yrs old. Don't know if he did the big races or was just a fast dunes local
