WORST RACE IN THE IS­LAND?

Classic Racer - - HOW IT BEGAN -

“Well, from the point of view of com­fort it was cer­tainly the 1959 Se­nior. I was so cold and wet af­ter win­ning the race I had to thaw out for lit­er­ally hours af­ter. But the most fright­en­ing time in the Is­land for me was un­doubt­edly the first time, when Joe Craig gave me con­trol of a pair of works Nor­tons – I was re­ally ter­ri­fied with the re­spon­si­bil­ity. then af­ter­wards I re­mem­ber when I’d bro­ken my wrist on the EMC, and was com­ing back on the boat, I never heard Les Gra­ham’s name men­tioned once – you knew he’d had a ter­ri­ble ac­ci­dent.”
