Concorde announced Freddie’s Easter arrival

A Good Friday in 1980 at Brands Hatch for the Transatlantic Trophy belonged to an 18-year-old American sensation…. Brands Hatch on Good Friday, Mallory Park on Easter Sunday and finishing at Oulton Park on Easter Monday. Massive crowds packed the three circuits to witness the transatlantic showdown with World Champions Barry Sheene and Kenny Roberts captaining their respect teams. Good Friday in 1980 summed it up perfectly. Back in the paddock Erv Kanemoto was warming up the striking silver 750cc Yamaha on which Freddie was going to race for the very first-time outside America.
