During an international motorcycling career that spanned four decades, Hugh Anderson won four world championships and 19 national titles.

After dominating domestic 350cc and 500cc races for several years, Anderson went to Britain in the early 60s and gained startling success.

In 1963, he won both the world 50cc and 125cc titles and the following year retained his title in the smaller rating, winning the 125cc again in 1965.

He twice won the blue riband event of street motorcycle racing, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy.

He returned to a new International Classics grand prix series 15 years later and again won a succession of titles.

Onny Parun

(1947 - )

It’s not too often that modern sports people admit to answering the call of Queen and country first, but that’s what Onny Parun did in 1975 when he chose to play for New Zealand in a Davis Cup tie instead of playing in a tournament in Holland.
