Biography: Mounts: Junior – A.J.S.
Senior – Norton

Age 26, Ulf Simon Gate from Sweden is making this fourth appearance in the T.T. series. He won the Swedish 1950 June “Loppet” and was second in the Hedemora Clubman’s T.T. the same year. Coming to England to work in Birmingham as a motor cycle mechanic, he entered for the 1951 Manx Grand Prix, but was a non-starter.

Returning to the Island again in 1955, Ulf rode an A.J.S. in the Junior and a Matchless in the Senior. His luck was out, however, for he retired in both – on the fifth lap of the Senior and the last lap of the Junior.
