Newcomers' race but retired on the second hip at Sulby Bridge. He came back to the Island again in 1958 to ride in the 350 c.c. Snaefell race in which he finished 20th at 77.13 m.p.h. In 1959 he was 24th in the Senior, winning a replica, whilst last year he was 13th in the Senior at 88.87 m.p.h. with, of course, another "Rep." His Senior machine is a 1959 model—the one he rode in that year's race—but his Junior is of 1961 brew.,loaned to him by Bardsley Bros., of Caernarvon. (TT Special, 7 September 1961, p.13)
