Record type: Motorsport Biographies

Biography: Age 21, Griffiths Jenkins is a heating engineer and comes from Pimlico, London, S.W. He had had no racing experience before the 1958 500 c.c. Snaefell race, but he finished 13th in this at 74.60 m.p.h. - not so bad for a first "go". In 1959 he was 46th in the Senior Manx, and last year he was 14th in the same race at 88.85 m.p.h., with, of course, a Replica.
