Former motorcycle racer Sammy Miller MBE has recently been awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Transport Trust for his work in the preservation of motorcycles and motorcycle heritage.

Miller is a retired motorcycle racer who runs the Sammy Miller Museum in Hampshire and he has worked tirelessly to not only build the museum collection, but also keep them working and shown off as often as possible.

Miller’s award was presented to him by HRH Prince Michael of Kent at a ceremony at the Brooklands Museum in Surrey. Miller brought along two of the bikes from the museum’s 400-odd collection of classic and vintage bikes to show off on the day.

The museum is one of the best in the UK and a popular destination for motorcyclists to visit. The museum home page explains: “Sammy Miller is a British motorcycling legend, 11 times British Champion, winner of over 1400 events and still winning competitions more than 50 years after his first victory.

“The museum houses one of the finest collections of fully restored motorcycles in the world, including factory racers and exotic prototypes, with the collection constantly evolving as new bikes are acquired.

“This is a living museum with almost every motorcycle in the museum in full running order.  Sammy regularly demonstrates the bikes at race circuits in the UK and Europe and at Museum, event days.”
