Biography: Mounts: Junior - Norton
Lightweight - M & F Excelsior
Senior - Norton

Age 28, I.I. Lloyd - like Jack Ahearn - is a taxidriver. His home is in Bournemouth, and he is a graduate to the T.T. by way of the Clubman's and the Manx, being also known on the short circuits as a consistently successful rider on the M & F Excelsior and a 125 c.c. M.V.

Riding a B.S.A., he was sev enth in the 1953 Junior Clubman's and other races that season brought him success with both the M.V. and the M & F at Aberdare and elsewhere.

Though he retired in the 1954 Lightweight T.T. he won silver replicas in both Junior and 125 c.c. races, finishing 24th and fifth respectively.

At Thruxton, on Easter Monday, Lloyd was again mounted on the M & F and was second in the 250 c.c. event. He is entered for all three T.T. Races by Pinks of Harrow.

Mounts: Junior—A.J.S.
Lightweight—M. & F. Excelsior

Age 27, I. I. Lloyd is a taxi driver, and comes from Bournemouth. A graduate to the T.T. this year by way of the Clubman’s and the Manx Grand Prix, Lloyd is also well known on the short circuits, and has been consistently successful with the 250 c.c. M. & F. and with the M.V.

Riding a B.S.A., he was seventh in last year’s Junior Clubman’s T.T. At Aberdare, a few weeks ago, he won the 125 c.c. race on his M.V., despite a very bad start—he was nearly last man away—finishing ahead of John Hogan and Brian Purlow, both of whom were mounted on M.V’s. In the 250 c.c. race he brought the M. & F. into third place.
