Pad­dock Gos­sip

Classic Racer - - WHAT'S INSIDE -

Malc’s been out and about and buried deep in con­ver­sa­tion with many like minds for an­other slice of rac­ing life from the four cor­ners (plus that grubby bit by the bins) of the pad­dock. Here’s what he found out.

A top road racer with a ca­reer which spanned over three decades and then saw him be­come one of the sport’s most suc­cess­ful team man­agers, Neil Tux­worth will be the guest of hon­our at this April’s Stafford show. Lin­colnshire man­tux­worth raced with great suc­cess from the late 1960s un­til 1990 on the roads and short cir­cuits in the UK and across Europe, in­clud­ing TT ros­trums and a Manx Grand Prix vic­tory. With his own ca­reer cut short by a life threat­en­ing crash at Aber­dare Park in Wales, Neil turned his hand to team man­age­ment with Honda, and in a long ca­reer gave them a string of World Su­per­bike, Bri­tish Su­per­bike and Isle of MANTT vic­to­ries, of­ten work­ing with some of the most dif­fi­cult-to-man­age rid­ers in the sport. Tux­worth will be on stage and in the Clas­sic Racer Grand Prix Pad­dock dur­ing both days of the show. As usual the Ca­role Nash In­ter­na­tional Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Show, this year held over the week­end of April 21/22, boasts the Bon­hams auc­tion, with view­ing on the Satur­day and sale on Sun­day. It’s one of the largest mo­tor­cy­cle auc­tions in the com­pany’s cal­en­dar, and as Clas­sic Racer went to press the ma­chin­ery al­ready as­signed in­di­cates they won’t dis­ap­point.
