[kropotkin thinks...] - Guest Blog: Mat Oxley - The MotoGP spannermanís tale, part 1

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.

-----------------

Stuart Shenton was a race mechanic when he was still at school. Jobs with Kork Ballington, Freddie Spencer, Wayne Gardner, Kevin Schwantz, Anthony Gobert and Loris Capirossi followed, as did world titles with Kawasaki, Honda and Suzuki. Heís a man with plenty of tales to tellÖ

Stuart Shentonís first experiences as a teenage factory race mechanic quickly taught him that racing isnít all about spinning spanners and twisting throttles.

In 1975, Kawasaki unleashed its water-cooled KR750 on the F750 World Championship, originally created for bikes with streetbike engines. Only one problem, the factory hadnít built enough bikes for homologation.
