Dave Row­land

Classic Dirtbike - - Drayton Bantam -

Manch­ester 17 club­man Dave Row­land was drafted in to the BSA works team to ride a Bantam in the SSDT and as stated in the press for that week showed BSA’S faith in the Bantam as a bike for big rid­ers, as both Dave and team-mate Dave Langston were not pe­tite. In a ding-dong bat­tle all week, Row­land kept with Miller and for all but one day it was a SH Miller/ Dave Row­land show at the top of the pile. The only hic­cup be­ing when Gor­don Far­ley crept be­tween them for one day but it was soon nor­mal ser­vice and what a great en­dorse­ment for the Bantam. Un­for­tu­nately it was not to be and for 1968 Dave was out on a Bultaco.
