Join us on Saturday 17 November to see Peter Williams in conversation with Jim Reynolds.
Peter Williams’ eleven years of motorcycle road racing was, in his own words: “the time of my life”. He read recently that sons subconsciously try to do better than their fathers. Unconsciously he certainly followed in his father’s footsteps. Jack Williams was a very good road racer and an inventive and meticulous engineer and, by Peter’s own admission, was much better than him in the latter respect. Peter was lucky that, in a way, he had two fathers; the second one being Tom Arter who, as his sponsor for almost all of the eleven years, said “No” only once. He financed Peter’s engineering ideas on the Arter Matchless and all those ideas came together on the 1973 John Player Norton ‘Monocoque’.
Motorcycle writer and commentator Jim Reynolds will be in the Chair. For more than 40 years Jim has worked as a freelance for a wide range of magazines and written two books about Norton. He owns a 600cc Dominator and currently rides a 750cc Honda as his modern bike. He is a consultant for Bonhams Auctions and will be taking a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents ‘Experienced Rider Assessment’ course this summer.
