Message to all D C’s out there, here is one lecture guaranteed not to send you to sleep, and the man to speak to is W Bro Jimmy Mann, currently JW of 1008 Royal St Edmunds Lodge in Bury.
Jimmy is mad about motorbikes and from the age of 22 in 1965 raced in the Isles of Man TT as a sidecar rider, coming 15th in his very first race, over the following years, steadily progressing up to 6th in 1972.
When first asked to do a “talk” Jimmy wasn’t sure it was for him but reviving the memories for the lectures has been a very happy experience and he will absolutely love to share his stories and anecdotes with you, sprinkling names like John Surtees, Murray Walker, Mike Hailwood, throughout his talk will keep you enthralled, as will experiences of racing at Le Mans or Hockenheim, names familiar to us all.
Jimmy is still very involved with the sport and a full trophy cabinet is testimony to his skill and dedication.
If you would like to book Jimmy for a lecture just call him, the only charge is a donation please to the 2019 festival.
