Last year's Sidecar race was his first T.T. and, riding a 1953 ex-pip Harris Norton, he came home ninth at 63.88 m.p.h., with a bronze replica. A month later he was second in the sidecar Scratch race at Mallory Park.
Hobbies: "Running a pharmacy six days a week and motor cycling on the seventh leave very little time for anything else!" (TT Special, 13 June 1960, p.16.)
