Popular Frimley Green rider, Len Hutty passed away on Tuesday 28th October after a short illness. He will be best remembered for campaigning a very competitive 410cc Matchless in Classic trials. Len was a member of the Surrey Schoolboys Trials Club having started trials as a youth rider in the early 1970’s when youth sport was in it’s infancy. He also rode a Gollner Kawasaki KT250 back in the late 1970’s, riding such a machine twice in the Scottish Six Days Trial.
Hutty’s happy nature, his wit and banter, made him popular with trials fans and his fellow competitors alike. His results in events like the annual Talmag Trial did the talking for him and he was one of Britain’s most respected Pre’65 competitors and a hard man to beat. We all at ‘Trials Guru’ sends our most sincere condolences to his widow Bev and the Hutty family.
Here is a photo tribute prepared specially by our Trials Guru photographer, Iain Lawrie from Kinlochleven showing Len on his Matchless in action in Scotland at the Pre’65 Scottish Two-Day Trial.
Two more photos this time provided by Trials Media/John Hulme from the 2014 event which was to be Len’s final Pre’65 Scottish.
