Nobby Clark and Honda

It was amusing to read that when the factory Honda racing team (reluctantly) took Clark on, they maintained such terrific secrecy that he wasn't even allowed to keep the notes he had written on his tuning. The Japanese were, and continue to be, just about the most xenophobic people on Earth: they will never trust a gaijin the way they will one of their own, no matter how long they know you or work with you.

Nobby spoke Japanese and had a special relationship with the Japanese factories. Trusted go between the riders and factories. A great special Ambassador.
