experience with belt drives spans over 20 years, his racing
experience nearly double that time. Bob started racing in
1965, a 125 BSA Bantam, winning the club championship in
1969/70. Riding the Bantam at the Diamond Jubilee TT in
1967 he picked up a well- deserved finishers medal. He raced
a Norton Commando (1972-1976) and from 1974-1978 raced in
European endurance riding Jock Robertson`s Rob North triples.
He is probably best known for riding the Mularney Manx that
he first raced in 1974. Since then he has had numerous wins,
including 500cc multi national Classic champion 1981/2/3/7,
Classic Superprix Brands Hatch Historic TT Assen, Chimay
& Mettet (Belgium) and Linkoping (Sweden). For the Post
TT at Mallory he used the 350cc Mularney Manx as well as
the 500cc winning both races. Bob returned to the Isle of
Man after a gap of 26 years finishing 4th in the MGP Junior
Classic race. Bob continues to race both machines.
Another side to Bobs business, preparing engines,
has resulted in various successes, including:
Heath Triple Senior Classic Manx winner.
Sandberg Scandinavian champion and Nordic Classic
de Ridder INCA champion.
