Norman Parker (AMRR Co-Founder)

norman parkerMy name is Norman Parker. I originally come from the East End of London but have lived in Bedfordshire for the past 25 years. I'm a lorry driver by profession, and have been for most of the past 30 years, since leaving the Army.

I served in the Royal Engineers from 1971 - 1980. I did 5 Tours in Norhtern Ireland and was stationed in Germany. In the last few years of my Army Career. I was fortunate enough to be part of a British Army Training team where I spent time in Canada and Kenya.

My real passion in life (apart from my partner, Gill) is motorbikes. I've been a motorcyclist from the age of 16 and I'm now 58. In the late 60's I raced a Norton Dominator and my claim to fame is that I was lapped twice by Barry Sheen at Brands Hatch!!!

Gill and I have been together a year now and although she is a novice to the motorcycling world she now shares my passion for bikes.

Last year was such a great success, lets hope its an even bigger one this year.
