90 ON THE CLOCK FOR PADGETT

Peter Padgett, who co-founded legendary Yorkshire dealership Padgetts of Batley way back in 1958 with brother Don, celebrated his 90th birthday on 28 December. All of us at British Dealer News wish him our congratulations.

Peter and Don took on the Yamaha franchise in 1959, followed by Honda in 1960 and Suzuki in 1963 — commercial relationships which have prospered mightily without interruption ever since. 

Across the intervening years, Padgetts built up an incredible racing pedigree too, sponsoring many of the greatest names in motorcycle sport. Peter and Don, as well Peter’s sons Clive and Gary, contributed to that heritage with their own racing endeavours.
