Age 25, Brian Green is a partner in a garage business at Wrentham Nr. Beccles, Suffolk. This is his first appearance in the Island, but he has had experience of short-circuit racing, having been placed in finals at most of the English circuits.

His Norton is a 1952 499 c.c. model ex-Ernie Walker, but it has been modified and is now fitted with streamlining. Brian’s passenger is 23-year old W. Rushmere.
