24" JP Blackburn

A 24" JP from 1932, the sport in question for the connection is in this case lawnmower racing! the remains of a competition number can be seen on the grassbox which dates from the 12 hour wisborough green lawnmower races help in the 1970s, the mower competed against fellow competitor Sterling Moss, who sadly passed away recently.

The machine was originally supplied to Dr Parson of Horley lodge in surrey, at what would now equate to around £5,000. after a few years it passed to a neighbour, and then in 1969 to a local enthusiast who kept it for many years.
JP have supplied various spares over the years, including 2 new engines, the first in the late 30s and the second in 1969.
