He has collected first, second and third places at Aintree, Alton Towers, Brand's Hatch, CadwelI Park, Mallory Park, Rhydymwyn, Silverstone, Snetterton, etc. He was a co-winner with Mike Hailwood in the 1958 Thruxton 500 mile race.

He was sixth in the 1958 350 c.c. Clubman's race, and third in the same event in 1959 with fastest lap. He was 31st in the 1958 350 c.c. Snaefell race on a Norton at 75.35 m.p.h. and on the same machine was 29th in the Senior Manx. In 1959, riding Nortons in both Junior and Senior M.G.P.'s, he was 44th in the Junior but retired In the Senior; last year, however, he was ninth in the Senior Manx at 89.81 m.p.h.
