Biography: Age 31, Gerald John Turner is a draughtsman, and comes from Stanmore, Middlesex. He has been racing since 1952, his first experience of the Mountain Course being the 1954 Senior Clubman's TT in which, unfortunately, he retired. Turning to the International TT in 1956, he was 33rd in the Junior on a Pike BSA (Bronze Replica) but retired in the Senior. This year he has scored sixth and seventh places at Castle Combe, Oulton Park and Silverstone. He writes of his 250 cc machine: "Built by myself with R.H Pike's drawings and know-how; fairings made by my mechanic and friend and see how!"
