Biography: Mounts: Junior A.J.S.
Senior - Norton

Age 42, Angus Martin is a graduate this year from the Clubman's races; he is a garage proprietor and comes from Dunchurch, near Rugby. His road racing career goes back to 1936, and he rode in the Carrowdore and Enniskillen '100's' in 1936, '37 and '38.

Between 1944 and 1948 he took to grass track racing, competing at most of the events in the Coventry, Leicester, Derby and Nottingham area during that time; in 1946, however, he made a 'come back' in road racing, and has since ridden at Dunholme, Ansty, Cadwell, Silverstone, Thruxton, Boreham, Scarborough, Ibsley, Eppynt and Oulton Park. He was winner of the Clubmans Senior Cup at Ansty in 1950, and of 'Motor Cycling's' Special Award at the 1952 Silverstone Saturday meeting.

In the Isle of Man Clubman's races he finished 35th in the 1951 Senior, 29th in the 1952 Junior, 11th in the 1953 Junior and 34th in the same year's Senior event after a fifteen minute stop at Laurel Bank. Last year he retired on the first lap of the Junior Clubman's event with a missing wheel nut.
