Good morning ladies. A complicated one - the 1934 Junior MGP result of 24th on the sheet of Robin J Edwards should be in the name of Robert Alec EDWARDS (Norton) who doesn't seem to have a sheet of his own. He also raced in the 1934 Senior MGP but retired at Sulby Bridge during the race. You will see that Robin J Edwards did compete in the 1934 Lightweight MGP on a Cotton but retired during the race. It's all complicated because the Lightweight and Junior races were combined!!! Hope it makes sense. - Paul Bradford Report this
