Douglas was an English motorcycle manufacturer from 1907 – 1957. The factory was located in Kingswood, Bristol, owned by the Douglas family, and especially known for its horizontally opposed twin cylinder bikes and as manufacturers of speedway machines. They also built a range of cars between 1913 and 1922. Douglas had a lot of success in speedway, motorcycle racing and trials events. Twelve Douglas motorcycles were entered in both the Junior TT and Senior TT, and another three were in the sidecar race during the 1923 TT, a year after Italian Ernesto Gnesa won the GP of Italy and the famous Italian Circuito delle Tre Regioni race. This gave Douglas their first Isle of Man TT victories. Tom Sheard won the 500cc Senior TT and they won the first ever Isle of Man sidecar race with Freddie Dixon while Jim Whalley had the fastest lap in the Senior TT with a time of just under 60mph during a wet race. A Douglas also placed third in the Junior TT that year. Later in 1923 Jim Whalley won the French Grand Prix, a distance of 288miles, and another Douglas won the 1923 Durban-Johannesberg Marathon race; a remarkable achievement by Percy Flook on a 2.75 HP machine with an average 43mph for 430miles. 1923 also saw Jim Whalley win the Spanish 12-hour race and Alec Bennett won the 1923 Welsh TT race.
