Stanley Miller is 35 years of age and is a motor-cycle dealer of Chorley, Lancs. He has ridden in the Ulster, the Manx, and several times in the T.T. In 1939 he won the Governor's Trophy in the Ulster and in 1946 the 250 class of the Carrowdole “100.” In the 1948 Junior he finished ninth on the Norton – the first privately owned Norton to finish. In 1949 he rode Nortons again in both Junior and Senior races. In the former he finished twenty-fifth at 77.47 m.p.h. and won a first-class replica. In the Senior event four days later he was well up the field when, on the sixth lap, he crashed at the Gooseneck, due to oil on the tyre, and sustained a broken collarbone.

In the 1950 Junior T.T. he retired after completing two laps, but in the Senior event he rode a Norton into 22nd place at a speed of 81.28 m.p.h. and collected a second class replica.

Non-starter in Lightweight.
