GREAT­EST DIS­AP­POINT­MENT?

Classic Racer - - HOW IT BEGAN -

“I was very un­happy about los­ing out to Bob Mac and the Gil­eras in 1957 – but I was re­al­is­tic about it. He was faster than me at that time round the Is­land, and the Gil­era was a bet­ter bike. Bob had this very neat style which was well suited to the Isle of Man. I’d cer­tainly say he was my most re­spected ri­val over there, in the years I was racing in thett.”
