British rider Alan Carter (2) leads Thomas Stevens (5) and Daniel Coe (7) in the AMA 250 Grand Prix race at Road America in 1988. The naturally talented Carter was expected to be a certain Grand Prix star after winning the first Grand Prix he competed in in 1983 when he was 18. Carter raced in the U.S. through 1989 and then went back to Europe and raced in various championships including World Superbike. Stevens went on to win the AMA Superbike Championship in 1991. Coe remains in the industry today as a magazine test rider. I’m told by a photographer who shoots a lot of intros that Coes is still wickedly fast.
