Biography: Age 39, a garage proprietor, of Hull, Leslie Harris is an "old-timer" who began grass-track racing twenty years ago. He rode at Syston as far back as 1929 and at other short circuit events of the next four years. Gave up racing at the end of 1933 for business reasons, but returned to the game last year when he rode a Velocette in both Junior and Senior finishing twenty-second in the Junior at 73.1 m.p.h. but retiring in the Senior on the third lap.
His machine is a 1949 KTT model with some modifications carried out by himself.
