Biography

A stylish rider and five times winner on the Island, Frith has the distinction of being one of the few to win TT races before and after the Second World War. He won the 1935 Junior Manx Grand Prix and then joined the Norton team for the 1936 TT Races. It was a winning combination as Frith took the Junior and finished second in the Senior. In 1937 he went one better in the Senior and took a brilliant win. He also set the first 90mph plus lap of the course. After finishing third in the 1939 Senior he missed the 1947 TT due to a practice spill on a 500cc Moto Guzzi. Turning to Velocettes in 1948 he won the Junior Race, repeating this success a year later. Frith also has the distinction of being the first ever 350cc World Champion.
