Record type: Motorsport Biographies

Biography: Age 24, Brian Ernest Park is an engineer and comes from North Shields. He started racing two years ago, he says, "as a hobby; now it has become an obsession." He has already ridden at Catterick, Charterhall, Kircaldy, Oulton, Thornaby, etc., and has qualified for the finals at all these circuits. He rode a 1959 B.S.A. Gold Star in last year's Senior M.G.P., but had to retire on the third lap. His machine for this year's Senior is "a long awaited" 1961 Manx Norton. Hobbies: "Was keen on gliding and model aircraft until the motor cycle bug bit—now no time for anything except motor cycles."
(TT Special, 7 September 1961)
