23 years today since the last privateer win in the premier class

Today, August 2nd, marks exactly 23 years since the last time a rider from a private team won a premier class race. Jack Middelburg triumphed at the British Grand Prix that took place at the Silverstone circuit, beating the likes of Randy Mamola and Kenny Roberts.

After his participation in the World Championships riding a Honda, Middelburg competed in the Dutch national series where unfortunately he lost his life in 1984 after an accident at the Tolbert circuit.
