Biography

John is a good friend of mine, as far as I know he started racing about 1970 with a Triumph Daytona.

His main interest was long distance endurance events. I first met him about 1975 by which time he had been out of racing for a year or so. We struck up a friendship, which resulted in John riding my 350 Ducati in mainly club events with a fair degree of success.

In 1976 we entered the Thruxton 500 mile race the little Ducati raised quite a few eyebrows until it was sidelined with a cracked frame.

When I pulled out of sponsorship John carried on racing my old bike and later his own Ducatis. He also started his own successful Ducati preparation business, something he does to this day.

He stopped racing a couple of years ago, and is anticipating moving to Spain in the near future.
