not bad for a 'middle aged' wrinkly on an underpowered bike! When you think back to him racing on lesser machinery against the likes of Kenny Roberts junior and Rossi and still giving them dixie what might have been on a good bike, one of the best gp riders to come out of GB.

Still remember his awesome qualifying laps at Philip Island on the underpowered Aprilia, and at Sachsenring on the KR Proton. He was never going to run those laps in the race on privateer tyres, but he showed his class... IIRC that Aprilia was only a 400 too. Brilliant.

Went down to the Island -- the racing was spectacular -- over 400 hundred entries -- Giles and McWilliams were doing 1/36's ---very impressive

Watched McWilliams wheelieing on the ripple strip leading onto the front straight past another competitor in his quest to chase Shawn Giles down. No room for error there! Awesome commitment!
Gilesy and the Katana was an fantastic combination, I was told his times were up there with top ten World Superbike times.
