West London RC 50 mile TT 3 June 1956

A win for Bracky in The Race of Truth on the Amersham Road. While a 2hr 9min time wouldn’t worry Ray Booty it is a fair ride on that course. Note when the course details read ” through Missenden” etc. that is what is meant. No by pass in those days. The organiser is nameless which is just as well as he has omitted the important words “Private and Confidential”! If he is identified he could, even now, be looking at a hefty suspension, possibly even Sine Die.

    Hi greenjersey. First off ,sad to hear about Johnny Brackstones passing…hope he gets a good send off! Second…I am probably the cause of your Canadian hits.I presently am living in Edmonton Alberta. As to that TT, I remember tony norris didnt finish , after a hour or so. search parties were sent out and he was reportly found laying in a ditch with bike, suffering from a hangover! Race under BLRC rules ,starting one foot down ,no push off,no secrets.
    Hi Terry, thanks for getting in touch and for putting me right about the time trial, I foolishly assumed it was under RTTC rules. There should be a good turn out for Bracky’s send off although quite a few of his contemporaries have already passed on.
