As of yet our material on this event is very sparse but almost the moment after iI posted this in a blog last week our European Fairy Godmother like special reporter STB came up with a programme and some results analysis to complement the final results sheet he recently supplied. You can read a copy of the official ISDT 1978 programme here.

We asked for help to name the above individuals and Mr G Bonardi came to our rescue.

Here is an image that was found in an online forum with little information to clarify who this image is all we know is the rider is Herbert Schek who was well known for his height of nearly 7ft and for riding a BMW.

Although acreditied to the ISDT 1978 Graziano Candidori an Italian visitor to this site #208 would have been a 350 class rider and Mr Schek does not appear in the results..

mmm nor is this the ISDT number 801 is far too high and this must be a German, European or World Championship Enduro event

      We have requested the FIM to release the results sheets for this event if they have it but it may take a while. We recently acquired a program for 1979 and will look for a 78 list

  2. Re Photo of BMW #208 of Herbert Schek at the ISDT 1978. I did not see him at the event nor does he appear in the results.
