Dad's Racing History

  Doug started racing sidecar road race in about 1962 once he had returned back from Cyprus where he served three years with the R.A.F. Regiment. He began as a passenger but it wasn't long before he could afford to design and build his own racing outfit. Here is a snippet of the crazy things he loved and enjoyed.

Dad and I giving it large at brands! We crashed that day and I did ten backward somersaults.

 Dad was a fantastic rider, capable of beating the best in the world! However it all came down to money and the fact that sidecar racing just isn't highly commercialised. Therefore sponership and works rides were just very few and far between! (more to follow soon)
