AFAMAC began very closed to Marseille on the french mediterranean coast.This flat and elongated track was around 3.610 miles and designed with lot of inovations in term of security, (of course for the 70's.) This circuit welcomed lot of GP races for the "Grand Prix de France", the 24H endurance race called the "Bol d'Or".

Philippe, Patrick, Fifre proud "coyotes"members prepared their bikes, Matchless G80, AJS 18S, BSA Goldstars 350 and 500 to ride on this famous track ! It was the time were tanks were homemade in fiber glass, when the bike stands were under woods, and the vans very old style: the rock n'roll...





The first classic bike races AFAMAC started at the end of the 70's and orginal bikes attended those meetings, the replica's were not existing. Good sounds and noises, ricin oil smell, K81 tires, Cromwell and Lewis Leathers were the only equipements.

It was the first lines of the Coyote Racing Team members ....



Goodbye Number 6 ...



The Prisoner is a British 1960s television series starring and co-created by Patrick McGoohan which combines spy fiction with elements of science fiction, allegory and psychological drama.

It follows a former British agent who, after abruptly resigning from his position, is held captive in a small village by the sea by an unidentified power that wishes to establish the reason for his resignation. Episodes typically feature the unnamed prisoner, labelled "Number Six" by his captors, unsuccessfully attempting to escape from or change the authority of "the Village." However, Number Six has numerous victories of his own, successfully thwarting the various individuals serving as the Village's chief administrator, "Number Two," in their attempts to break him or control the Village, causing a disconcertingly rapid turnover of personnel in the position. Eventually, as the series reaches its surreal climax, Number Six's indomitable resistance and mounting blows against the administration threaten the viability of the Village itself, which forces its desperate warders to take drastic action.



"Where am I?"
"In the Village."
"What do you want?"
"Information."
"Whose side are you on?"
"That would be telling…. We want information. Information! INFORMATION!"
"You won't get it."
"By hook or by crook, we will."
"Who are you?"
"The new Number Two." (This occasionally varies — see below.)
"Who is Number One?"
"You are Number Six."
"I am not a number — I am a free man!"
