Legends Of Suzuki Exhibition – Can You Help? 28 October 2009

Frank Whiteway aboard the 500cc Crooks Suzuki.‘Legends of Suzuki’ will be celebrated in a new temporary exhibition timed to coincide with the 2010 TT Festival when Suzuki will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its arrival at the Isle of Man TT races. The exhibition will be hosted by Manx National Heritage in partnership with Suzuki GB at the Manx Museum in Douglas, Isle of Man.

Curator of Social History Matthew Richardson, who is co-ordinating the exhibition said: “Suzuki machines have been a mainstay of the TT races since 1960 and Manx National Heritage is delighted that Suzuki GB have chosen to join us in marking this historic anniversary. The exhibition promises to be a feast for anyone interested in motorcycle racing, with historic machinery, leathers and memorabilia marking the highlights of Suzuki’s involvement with the TT races. Among the Suzuki names which we will feature are Mitsui Ito, Ernst Degner, Mick Grant, David Jefferies, Adrian Archibald and Bruce Anstey.”

Visitors and fans from across the UK, Europe and further afield will have the chance to see this major exhibition and now have an opportunity to contribute to its success. Manx National Heritage is seeking memories and memorabilia connected with Suzuki from any of the five decades in which the firm has participated in the TT races.

Anyone who feels they may have something which is relevant and which they might be willing to loan, or who has memories or photographs of Suzuki riders, is invited to contact the Manx Museum, telephone 648000 or email: matthew.richardson@gov.im.
