We sadly learnt yesterday that Mick Hemmings had passed away after a short illness.
Mick has always been an inspiration to this club and we were fortunate to count him amongst our friends.
A phenominal engineer and a great great racer of Nortons, Mick was particularly well known as a parts supplier and engineer from his shop in Northampton from which he retired a few years ago.
Mick's contact with Norton Commandos began in 1969 with the purchase of an accident damaged machine (one of the first Commandos sold in the UK). From 1970 to 1972 the machine was gradually transformed into a Norvil Production Racer and went on to win well over 30 races backed up by numerous 2nd and 3rd places, race and circuit lap records and the B.R.C. 1000cc championship.
Our thoughts are with Angie his wife and partner (pictured with Mick above) and his family at this sad time.
