Mount: Senior—Norton

Age 24, Roy Ingram is a mechanic—tractor driver on a farm, and comes from Rode, near Bath. No stranger to the Island, Roy competed in the 1952 and ’53 Clubman’s races, and finished both times—38th, on a Matchless, in the 1952 Senior and 13th on a Norton in last year’s Junior.

He has competed in Clubman’s races at Thruxton, Blandford, Castle Combe and Brand’s Hatch, using a G9 Matchless twin, and he makes his debut as an “International” this year.

The mount he rides is a standard “Featherbed”, but embellished with shrouded steering head and rear wheel panels, these mods, being produced by Colour Developments, of Bradford-on-Avon, to a design by Wilf Sleightholme. Roy is entered for this year’s Senior by F. Sleightholme and Sons, of Trowbridge.
