Son Shares Fond Memories of His Father’s Motocross Career

Bermudian motocross racer Otis Ingham now retired honored his late father Burt “Dirt Digger” Ingham at yesterday’s Remembrance Day race in St. David’s, the first competitive motocross event on the island in almost a year.

“ It was definitely a special day for me. I appreciate that the motocross club was able to put this event on for my father,” Mr. Ingham said.

My father helped start motocross on the island a long time ago down at Horseshoe Bay, alongside Ed Matthews, Porky Wright, Gerald Gibbons and many others.

“ The club started by Horseshoe Bay, but when people started to complain, they moved to Ferry Reach, and then they went to Coney Island, and finally moved here [in St. David’s],” Mr. Ingham said.

“ I believe that we are coming up on our 50th anniversary this season, so it is great that they have been able to keep this going for so many years.”

Otis Ingham stated he began his motocross career on a flat track at Pembroke Hamilton  Club (PHC), and started racing at Coney Island when he was 14 years old. However, he has since retired from competitive racing but this sport is in my blood and dear to my heart.
