Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Both sons of the late Keith Heckles will re­turn to the Isle of Man to ride in the Classic Racer Lap of Hon­our at this year’s Classic TT and Fes­ti­val of Mo­tor­cy­cling in Au­gust, as a trib­ute to their fa­ther. Mark Heckles, who had a suc­cess­ful race ca­reer in the UK and Europe, in­clud­ing World Su­per Bike, re­turns from the USA where he now lives and still races, and will ride his fa­ther’s dis­tinc­tive Beart Nor­ton on which Keith en­joyed so much suc­cess. Paul Heckles will set off along­side his brother on the Norvil Com­mando which Keith also rode in the Isle of Man TT.

You can feel the at­mos­phere as Ital­ian Gi­a­como Agostini pushes off on his MV along­side Liver­pool’s Keith Heckles (Nor­ton) to start the 1969 Se­nior TT.
