Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

John Byrne, who joined the com­mit­tee of the then South­ern Mo­tor­cy­cle Club in 1970 and trans­ferred to the newly formed South­ern 100 Mo­tor­cy­cle Racing Club in 1981, has been made a life mem­ber of the club. Tak­ing on the role of con­trol mar­shal in 1983, John be­came chief pad­dock con­troller three years later, a po­si­tion he still holds as the 2017 races rapidly ap­proach. A Castle­town man, John joins club pres­i­dent Derek Ni­chol­son and club chairman, Phil Taub­man MBE as fel­low life mem­bers.
