Record type: Motorsport Biographies

Biography: Harry Rembrandt 'Rem' Fowler (1882-1963) was a British motorcycle racer famous for winning the twin-cylinder class of the inaugural 1907 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) races. A skilled toolmaker by trade, he competed as a trials rider between 1903 and 1923 riding Ariel, New Hudson, and Rex motor-cycles and entered the first Isle of Man TT race riding a 5 hp Peugeot-engined Norton motorcycle.

During the First World War, Rem Fowler was involved in the calibration of gun-sights and during the Second World worked in tool-making in the aero-engine industry.

After the war, as a frequent visitor to the TT races, he was presented with a Gold Medal along with former TT race winner Jack Marshall at the 1957 Golden Jubilee TT races.

Fowler died in Solihull Hospital on 13 February 1963 at age 80 having retired from work in November 1962.
