The Nor­ton Mo­tor Tro­phy

Old Bike Australasia - - BLOW YOUR OWN -

This was a large sil­ver salver awarded at Bathurst Easter Road Races for the Best Per­for­mance by a Club­man rider in the 350cc and or 500cc races. I was for­tu­nate enough to win this per­pet­ual tro­phy in 1959, and had a small replica made at my own cost en­graved with the nec­es­sary data. How­ever I ne­glected to record all of the other win­ners up to that date. I am as­sum­ing that con­di­tions changed in later years when Ja­panese and Ital­ian ma­chines be­came more com­mon, and the Tro­phy may have dropped out of cir­cu­la­tion. If any­one out there has that in­for­ma­tion, and for later years as well, I would very much ap­pre­ci­ate get­ting those names to add to my salver. The orig­i­nal was quite large, about 350mm di­am­e­ter from mem­ory. Thanks if you can help. Ivan Turnbull 6 Royal Heights, New Ply­mouth, New Zealand. Email taranakian­[email protected]
