About Mark Phillips


Mark Phillips was born into the Motorcycle racing scene and has lived and breathed it throughout his life.

Mark says “My dad Derek Phillips raced Manx Nortons in 1950's and 1960's. He made my first motor bike, a motor bike and side car, when I was just 4 years of age.”

Mark started school boy Moto X (motor cross) at the age of 8 on a Suzuki bike. He started road racing in 1979 on a Yamaha TZ 250 D and in 1985 Mark finished second in the British 350cc championship on a TZ 350 g Yamaha.

“Then in 1986 I rode for Padgetts of Batley on a Suzuki RG 500 and went on to win the FI British championship on a Clive Padgett RG 500 Gama bike built by Clive and Gary Padgett”

During his career Mark Phillips has ridden for Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda Triumph and Aprilla. In 1995 he won the Triumph speed triple championship. Mark’s father Derek also ran the general guarantee for finance Triumph race team.

The 1990’s saw Mark testing Triumph’s new bikes all over the world.

In 1999 Mark became chief instructor for the Yamaha and Honda race schools.
