 Pinhard Trophy Search is On.

Every year the Sunbeam Motorcycle Club organise the "Pinhard Trophy" award for the best under 21 motorcycle sport rider in the UK. Allan Robinson of Helix Ltd, the motorcycle racing commentator, handles the clerical and logistical side of the award.

The huge Pinhard silver cup - perhaps the biggest cup in all of motorcycle sport and a cheque from the trustees of the legacy left by Fred Pinhard 51 years ago has, annually, gone to men and women who have gone on from youth sport to become world champions. The list is long and prestigious and includes Mike Hailwood GM. M.B.E., John Surtees M.B.E., Jeff Smith M.B.E. and stars of every discipline of motorcycle sport - some who won it 50 years ago are now old age pensioners!!

Last years winner was John Walker aged 10, a skilled and outstanding trials rider from Keswick, Cumbria.

All Clubs and indeed, anyone who would like to make a nomination to put before the judges can obtain the criteria and application forms from Allan Robinson M.B.E. at:

Helix Ltd
4 The Stables 7 Weyhill
Surrey GU27 1BZ
Phone: 01428 644033
Fax: 01428 644021

The search will see the forms received during August and entries close on October 1st 2001 with the winner being declared at the International Motorcycle Show in Birmingham, which runs from November 8 for two weeks. The Pinhard Prize presentation takes place within the ACU Awards Ceremony in the New Year. This year the Pinhard Trophy will be awarded for the 51st time.
