 The start of the 1962 Czechoslovakian Grand Prix. Joel Robert is #15 in the left foreground and Torsten #12 in the center.   This was the first of many historical battles between these two great champions. For those of you who think motocross is bigger, better and more popular now, guess again. Check out the crowd in this shot. It was not uncommon for crowds to be between 100,000 and 200,000 in the 60's. National TV also covered all the GP's.
