Stan Dibben 1926-2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the legendary sidecar racer and our Vice President Stan Dibben.
As he wrote in his autobigraphy, Stan lived life not just to the full, but right on the edge. There are no words to describe someone who has been a world champion sidecar rider - the one just barely in the sidecar, balancing the machine with his body at 150mph! Even more amazingly, by then Stan had already been a professional trumpet player, electrician and sailor as well as a highly respected solo motorcycle racer on the GP circuits. He worked with some of the best known names at both BSA and Norton, raced the first ever Domiracer, helped in the successful world land speed record set by Donald Campbell in Bluebird, and then became the man who did so much to introduce NGK spark plugs into the UK. He even designed supermarket trolleys that handled 'like a Ferrari! Stan was an amazing man who managed to fit more fun and adventure into his 94 years than most of us would even dream of.

Stan will be missed by all his Norton family... Our sincerest condolences go to his nearest and dearest. Rest In peace Stan
