A motorcycle legend has proved he can still "show the young guns how to race" as he got back on the track at Donington Park.
'Rocket' Ron Haslam made a racing appearance on Sunday at the inaugural Donington 500 event after he last competed back in 2005. At the new meeting, the racing star's team won the 250 Endurance Race.
Haslam was part of a team with fellow riders John O'Toole and Jack Tynan. O'Toole is Haslam's son-in-law and Tynan is a mutual friend, and both were tutored through the Ron Haslam Race School, which regularly takes place at Donington Park.
During his career Haslam won three world titles, four British championships.
Speaking before the Donington 500, Haslam said: "The reason I am dusting down my leathers is to support the sport that has been a large part of my life.
"I want to show people how affordable it can be to take part – either as a competitor or as a fan – and Donington Park have echoed this by offering spectators entry for a fiver, just like the good old days.
"Obviously racing again at Donington Park is a big factor for me as I have a huge nostalgic connection to the circuit. This will be the first time all three of us have raced together so it's going to be interesting, but endurance racing is all about stamina and consistency so we will be working very much as a team rather than looking for individual glory."
His son Leon is currently competing in the British Superbike Championship. He took to Instagram after Sunday's race to write: "P1 for team clip and climb. Three-hour race at Donington and @ronhaslamracing is still showing the young guns how to race. Well done dad."
Ron's wife wrote: "They did amazing, but I've told him it's the last one - I've got enough with Leon racing."
