Don’t knock Tuxworth

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

I must take is­sue with Phil Stephens re­gard­ing the re­turn of Guy Mar­tin to road rac­ing with Honda, (MCN let­ters, Jan­uary 25). Guy Mar­tin, like all road rac­ers, knows the risks and ac­cepts them. He does so for his own rea­sons and he does not need third party ad­vice about when to quit, how­ever well in­ten­tioned. To crit­i­cise Neil Tuxworth in re­gard of Guy’s de­ci­sion is wrong. Tuxworth has been a ma­jor player in keep­ing the TT from fold­ing by keep­ing Honda in­volved. The fact it is now more pop­u­lar than ever is due to peo­ple like Neil keep­ing the faith through the thin years of the past. His knowl­edge and at­ten­tion to de­tail are leg­endary. Black­pool Rock has ‘Black­pool’ writ­ten right through it, Tuxworth has ‘Honda’. Jez and Sam Briggs, email
