The Auto-Cycle Union
Intemationat Road Race Meeting at Thruxton Aerodrome, Hants
Commentary by Graham Walker and Murray Walker on the start and opening laps of the Final of the British Junior Motor-Cycle
Road Race Championship
The British Championship title for each of the recognised motor-cycle racing classes-125, 250, 350 and 500 c.c. engine capacity solo; and 1,200 c.c. sidecar and threewheeler-goes to the winner of each of the main races in this meeting at Thruxton.
Organised on behalf of the Auto-
Cycle Union by the Ashton Combine, the meeting is being run on one of the fastest circuits in the country, the
2.75-mile perimeter and runway track at Thruxton aerodrome, near Andover, Hants.
Last year's champions-Ivor Lloyd
(125 c.c. M.V.); Fergus Anderson (250 and 350 c.c. Guzzis), and Derek Farrant (500 Matchless): there was no sidecar race--will all be there to defend their titles. Among their chief opponents will be the Australian Ken Kavanagh, who rides in the Italian
Guzzi team with Anderson; Scotland's Bob Mclntyre, on a factory-entered A.J.S.; the two so far unnamed Norton factory riders, one of whom will probably be the dashing Southern Rhodesian, Ray Amm, who has won the Senior T.T. in the Isle of Man twice in succession; and John Surtees.
Surtees, a twenty-year-old Londoner, has been unbeatable this summer at Brands Hatch, the Crystal Palace, and on most of the aerodrome circuits on which he has raced the Nortons his father tunes for him.
In the sidecar class there will be keen competition between Peter Harris, from Wolverhampton, with a Norton, Ted Davis of Stevenage, who drives a ' big-twin' Vincent and the veteran Morgan three-wheeler driver from Oldbury, Cyril Hale.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
