Biography: Age 23, Patrick Joseph Dunphy comes from London, S.W.1, and is a motor cycle manager. This is his sixth season of road racing and he has had several successes, including firsts and seconds at Brands Hatch, Crystal Palace. etc. In the 1957 500 c.c. Newcomers' race he was third in the first lap, less than a minute behind the leader and ultimate winner, Ned Minihan, but soon afterwards his engine seized, due to a blocked oil-pump. He retired again in the 1958 Senior Manx, this time with a burnt-out clutch. The gremlins were still with him in 1959, when a broken con-rod put him out of the Junior on the fifth lap, and again last year when he retired on the third lap of the Senior with carburettor trouble. (TT Special, 5 September 1961, p.11)
