What was life like for a teenager in the 90s paddock?

“All I wanted to do was ride my bike, but once I finished, not even a 5 minute debrief as I didn’t know what I was talking about, I just wanted to go out and watch the 500s as it was Schwantz, Rainey, Doohan. So I was out on the service roads watching from the barriers, walking around the paddock just staring at my heroes and outside the back of their garages, they’ve come out, say ‘alright, mate?’ – ‘yeah, yeah..’ Just trying to get them to look at me! So, it’s so strange looking back thinking ‘how lucky was I at 18-19 years old doing that?’ Great memories.”
