It came as a bit of a shock to realise that this important ISDT is missing a vital component. The Official Results sheet is missing .. or nobody can trace a copy. Initial Enquiries of the British governing body the Auto Cycle Union drew a blank and an approach to the FIM recovered advice this set had gone missing. It has often seemed strange to me that Taff Isaac’s original Speedtracktales web site collection of images I had collected includes a photo of the original cover of the ISDT 1954 results but he has no idea who supplied this photo, where it was or how I could get hold of them.
In the meantime to discover a full list of entrants check this sheet Start sheet ISDT 1954

As it is highly likely a copy of this document still sits in a ISDT collectors stash who seeing this might be prompted to quickly scan or photocopy a set and pass them onto Speedtracktales.
In the meantime I have been able, with the assistance of my great freind ‘STB’ to pull together a results sheet for the riders who finished the ISDT and the overall event statistics and major trophy and award winners.
This data has come from the original event reports from 1954 in ‘the Motor Cycle’ and Austrian ‘Motorrad’ magazine reports. UNfortunately the individual rider details are sparse we have no rider plate numbers nor do we have any details on those riders who did not finish the event. My final plea is for anyone who can help fill the information gap on the 1954 event by supplying the official results.
In the mean time here is my prepared copy of the 1954 results.. enjoy!!!
