Record type: Motorsport Biographies

Biography: Age 29 garage foreman of Blackburn, Lancs, Albert Jones rode in the 1951 125 cc TT, and finished fifteenth on an Anelay-DMW, at 48.50 mph. His principal successes have been at the Wallasey Sand Championships where he was third in 1949 and first the following year.

He rode a Norton in last year's Junior TT, but retired on the last lap; and he did not have any better luck in the 125 cc event in which, on the same machine that he rode in the 1951 "Tiddler's" race, he retired on the third lap.

He is entered by Shuttleworh and Geldart, of Blackburn.
