Brian Richards

Record type: Motorsport Biographies

Biography: Age 23. Brian Richards is an industrial tractor demonstrator and comes from Newland, near Ulverston, Lancs. He has had four years of trials and scrambles, but this is his first season's road racing, and his best to date is seventh place in the 500 c.c. scratch class of the recent Cookstown "100." His bike is the 1959 model which Jack Bullock rode in last year's Senior T.T., finishing 16th at 93.39 m.p.h. The machine belongs to Eddie Crooks, and Brian writes: "I would like to say how grateful I am to Eddie for all the help I have had from him, both financially and morally, over the last few months."
(TT Special, 7 September 1961, p.12).
