Looking for a race report of the 1988 race in Chicago where Mike Swiss won one of the main races.

I have the one by JPvR but looking for any others.

I assume you haven't seen the below.

The whole issue is coverage of that race, with John Ford's take on it.

There is also one page from Andy Smith, with his impressions of the race.

I can send the above but I would like it back.

The info is too spread out on the 48 pages, to make scanning practical for me on my end.

No problem.

My pleasure.

You also have to promise to not post the picture from page 29. LOL.

Who is that fine looking gentleman in the middle? I recognize the other two geezers as Swiss and Limpach.

That is Franco Gianotti.

He was an Italian scale racer, who raced with his wife, Corinna.

A legendary couple. He unfortunately met an untimely death. She was a race winner as well.
