Biography: Mounts: Junior - B.S.A.
Senior - Triumph

Age 23, Morris Low is an autoelectrician and is yet another of the strong Dominions representation in this year's races, for his home is in Tauranga, New Zealand.

He began racing in 1949, but says that he has had little success until recently - very recently, in fact, for in the North-West '200' he was fourth on a B.S.A. in the 500 c.c. class; he was the first private owner to finish, only two seconds behind Jack Brett, and collected both the 'Open to all' and the 500 c.c. Handicap awards for his fine performance.

Back home he has taken part in scrambles and also in Speedway racing; he was the 1951/2 Western Springs Junior Speedway Champion. Hobby - Rugby Football.
