London dealer displays Minter trophies

Former dealer and manufacturer Colin Seeley has overseen the sale of trophies belonging to former British road race champion and GP rider Derek Minter who is now in a care home. Minter was the first to lap the TT at 100mph, in 1960.

Minter’s wife Jenny, who died of cancer in August, was keen that the trophies be kept as a single collection (114 trophies spanning 1955-1967) and put on public display. They can now be seen at The London Motorcycle Museum in Greenford, Middlesex, run by London dealer Bill Crosby.

In Jenny Minter’s memory medical equipment worth £2500 was purchased for the Canterbury Pilgrims Hospice by members of the motorcycle fraternity, £1700 of it coming from the Joan Seeley Pain Relief Charity Trust.
