end of a 250cc qualifying session, 1988 Dutch TT, Assen

back in the earlier (analogue) two strokes days at the end of a practice session riders would cut out their engines while being on the power (mainly on a longer straight), this was called a “plug chop”
a plug chop meant that engineers could check the condition of the spark plugs & by analizing them set up the correct jetting of the carburettors
it did however mean riders couldn’t use their bikes anymore to get to the pits, so either had to walk back -while pushing their bikes- or get a lift from a tow truck
in Assen they usually did a plug chop on the very fast ‘Veenslang’ section, about halfway through the course, so it was quite a long way back to the finish
it were more simple & more complicated days …
