Harry Klinzmann (No. 37) and Malcolme Tunstall (No.266) do battle on the final lap of the 1984 Daytona Battle of the Twins race. Battle of the Twins, especially the Daytona round, brought out some of the trickest racing machines of Bike Week and the Krauser MKM BWM became one of the iconic motorcycles of the series. Klinzmann and Tunstall ran wheel to wheel on the final lap, with Tunstall using the power of his Ducati (tuned by his dad Syd) to draft by Klinzmann at the finish line to score second. Gene Church won the race on a Harley-Davidson. World Championship 250cc Grand Prix race winner Martin Wimmer rode another Krauser MKM BMW to sixth in this race.
