About George Brown

George Brown

GEORGE BROWN d1979. Motorcycle racer called " the father of British sprinting". He raced a variety of bikes, but is most closely associated with the Vincent brand. For a time he worked at Vincent, where he headed up their Experimental department and raced the factory-backed single and V-twin bikes. He left Vincent to establish his own motorcycle shop and as a sideline built high-performance sprint bikes that he rode to several national and international records. In 1966 he scheduled a four day Castrol-sponsored attempt to exceed 200 mph on a motorcycle in Britain. The runs took place at Greenham Common in Berkshire in October, one year before he would lose his racing license. During the runs several British and World records were set, but the 200 mph goal was not reached
