1957 Senior Manx GP Winners

Fabulous shot of local TT hero Alan Holmes (Norton#83) and Miss Isle of Man 1957, Julie Dawson. Runner up Ernie Washer (Norton-right) doesn't look quite so enthralled with his slightly more mature female companion! Image courtesy of NCNOC.

Magnificent!

More trophies in the cabinet than you can shake a stick at. Well done, Holmesy, you've never lost your touch.

God bless, JM

Thanks Anonymous JM for your kind April comment. Still fit and active at 82, living in Spain, it is nice to know I am not forgotten. Incidentally, the Miss IOM was JUNE Dawson and the 'Mature Female Companion' is my Mum. My Dad is between June and my team mate no.75 Bob Dowty. All the best to everyone. Cheers Alan

Thank you Alan (the anonymous comment in June) for your warming comments and for correcting my inaccuracies in this post. It's my intention to make sure the riders and their families of this era are not forgotten. It must be one of the best feelings in the world to win a Senior - this is one of my favourite photos. Congrats on great win and 'good health to you sir!
Cheers,
George

It s quite a leap from new zealand s biggest life insurer to a small but dynamic design company. There is one more reason to opt for this medication that is Hoodia is free of any side effect. The company is pushing its product with an ad campaign featuring an actress who lost weight, even though the FDA has notified Trimspa that it hasn't demonstrated that the product is safe.

I met Alan Holmes in Spain a few years ago after I got an autographed Stamp from my father-in-law, we had loads of chats together and Alan loaned me some photographs so that I could put a little something together to celebrate 50 years of the Manx GP, you can watch it here;
