First thought was "hey, I've been to Leeds Castle." Had to google to see if the castle is even in Leeds. So, I'm not sure if I was ever in Leeds or not. It would have been in '79 as part of a high school trip sponsored by the English department from the American School of the Hague where I graduated. Spent a week in London then seeing places like the Globe Theater, the home of Shakespeare, and, anything literature related.I'm just done the road from Leeds but is my home town
Years later, while in the Army and stationed in Wiesbaden, GE, I would return. This time with a different theme. Silverstone GP in '86. That was a really cool three-day weekend there. The cops literally locked the gate to not let anyone out, but hey it was really cool party with all the race goers. That would be the last motorcycle GP race at Silverstone for quite a while as you are aware.
