Biography: Age 26, Richard [Gary] Dickinson is engaged in the motor trade and comes from Formby, Lancs. He first visited the Isle of Man in 1958 - only to retire on the fifth lap of the "125" - but he has raced at many short circuit meetings and has been "placed" in 125 c.c. events at Aintree, OuItun Park, Rhydymwyn and Sliverstone.

In 1959 he rode an M.V. in the 125 c.c. T.T. and finished 18th at 54.61 m.p.h., whilst last year, in the same race - but over the Mountain Course! - he was 11th at 75.36 m.p.h. and collected a Bronze Replica. At Charterhall last Whit Sunday he won the 125 c.c. race and at Aintree on the following day was second in the same class.

Hobbies: "Modern music and a little golf."
