1992 Staples Corner bombing

The 1992 Staples Corner bombing occurred on 11 April 1992 when the Provisional IRA detonated a large van bomb near the Staples Corner junction in north London, England. The attack happened at 1:10 am, a few hours after the major bombing of the Baltic Exchange seven miles away which killed three people; the bomb was home-made like the Baltic Exchange one, was placed in a white Bedford van. The IRA gave telephone warnings 50 minutes prior from a phone operator in Portadown, Northern Ireland. Police evacuated the area. Although no injuries were caused, the blast was powerful and caused significant damage to roads, leaving a crater on the North Circular Road flyover, it was strong enough to be felt several miles away. The bomb damaged a three-storey B&Q DIY superstore and a steel-framed warehouse, damaged warehouse property constructed of light cladding, it was estimated. An eyewitness said the B&Q store was "completely destroyed" and the roof collapsed; the B&Q superstore had to be demolished and the junction was closed for several months, causing severe disruption.

It is one of London's busiest intersections. On the morning of 8 October 1993 the IRA targeted Staples Corner once again with a small explosion. Around the same time another bomb detonated 2 miles away on West End Lane in West Hampstead. No injuries were caused. In 1994 two IRA terrorists, Gerard Mackin and Derek Doherty, were found guilty of planting 12 bombs throughout London over seven days in October 1993. Staples Corner is featured in Patrick Keiller's 1994 film London; the scene showcases the wreckage of the bombing days after the explosion in 1992.

Wayne Rainey takes pole it’s Kevin Schwantz and Eddie Lawson. Rainey gets the start, Lawson moves into second, followed by Schwantz. A lead group forms, with Rainey, a small gap to Lawson another small gap to Schwantz, Kevin Magee and Christian Sarron. Schwantz cruises into the pits with a mechanical, Lawson closes the gap to Rainey and moves into the lead. Sarron is in third a couple of bike lengths behind, Wayne Gardner passes Magee for fourth spot. With two laps to go, Rainey is right behind highsides on the exit of a right-hander. It's a long tumble. Though it’s Rainey’s only real mistake all year, Lawson’s consistency and improvement brings him the win and a lead in the standings by 13.5 points. Sarron takes second, Gardner third. Says Lawson of the lap that saw Rainey go down: "That was my fastest lap of the race.

When I cracked it open, Wayne followed me, there was no way the Dunlop was going to do that. It wasn’t Wayne, it was the tyres."
