Deck the Hall

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Great article on Quorn Hall in Tassie by Ken Young and I couldn’t read it quick enough as my un­cle, Ge­off Martin raced there on his 1930 AJS R10 500cc OHC. There’s a great photo of Ge­off on his out­fit lead­ing his arch ri­val Dave Pow­ell on Page 54, but Ken has called my Un­cle “Ge­orge” in­stead of Ge­off. I spoke to Ge­off this morn­ing, he’s turn­ing 88 next month and he can re­call all of his races with great clar­ity. The en­gine from his out­fit is in Mel­bourne sit­ting around do­ing noth­ing and I would love to see it back in Tasmania with Ge­off. Great Mag­a­zine, I look for­ward to each copy. Craig McDon­ald Tasmania Craig, Ge­off’s ship has come in. This is­sue con­tains the story of John Ret­tig’s re­mark­able restora­tion of Ge­off Martin’s R10 AJS (page 46), with plenty of pic­tures. You can also look for­ward to your choice of Rar­iTee t-shirt. – Ed
