Biography: Age 26. Denis Pratt is a driver and comes from Sedbergh, Yorks. He has had various successes at short circuit meetings and finished tenth in the 1956 Junior Clubman's. In 1957 he won the 350 c.c. Newcomers' race at 82.94 m.p.h., and in the Junior Manx the next day came home 14th at 82.53, winning a replica.
In the 1958 Senior Manx he was 22nd on a 350 c.c. Norton and collected another replica, but he went much better in 1959, finishing 11th in the Junior Manx and ninth in the Senior, with a couple more replicas. He did not ride in the Manx last year, but he is back again with us now. He has already done well in this year's short circuits, having won races at Charterhall, Ouston and Scarborough. Both his machines are prepared by Bill Lacey.
