ONE SHOT - Kenny Roberts in the "banks" of Daytona

This iconic photograph, 1983, shows Kenny Roberts, at the controls of YAMAHA with its own specifications for this event and in the magnificent yellow used as a competition color by the brand in the USA, in a "high bank" of Daytona in an edition, 200 Miles, in which he achieved the victory. There's little to say other than the overwhelming strength and beauty that's in sight! The author of the photograph, Don Morley, as the story goes, jumped onto the runway to get this snapshot and, because of the chutzpah, was arrested! A detail that makes this image even more exceptional! The history of the origin of this photograph was obtained using the great historical knowledge of Ricardo Matkovich!
