Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races 2019 Race 5 Geoff Duke – Junior Superbike Post Classic

In News by Phil Edge

One of the first real icons of motorcycle road racing in the 1950’s Geoff Duke OBE, won six TT races and six World Championships during his illustrious career.

Geoff’s eldest son Peter Duke, founder and CEO of Duke Marketing Ltd took on the title sponsorship of the Junior Superbike Post Classic Race when it was introduced to the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races in 2012 and donated a trophy naming it ‘The Geoff Duke Trophy’.

It is now the only official trophy bearing Geoff’s name which is awarded at a Classic Road Race and the organisers Southern 100 Racing are privileged and proud to have the Duke family involved with the ‘friendly races’ which were one event that Geoff Duke always attended.
