He was the Daily Mirror's Chief Sports Feature writer, F1 and MotoGP reporter, until his retirement from the paper in 1997. Ted met Mike Hailwood at the Isle of Man TT in 1961 when Mike rode all four solo classes and became the first rider to win three races in a week. He was just 21. Their friendship flourished from then until Mike Hailwood's tragic death in 1981. Ted has written three books about Mike Hailwood's life and career. Ted was educated at Houldsworth School, Reddish, Cheshire, read English language and literature at Stockport College, and then studied Economics and Economic history at the College of Commerce in Manchester.
