About Roger

British Solo Champion in 1975 and 1977, Marshall was Britain’s best privateer in the late 1970s, finally getting his break as team-mate to Wayne Gardner at Moriwaki Kawasaki in 1981. A move to Heron Suzuki and then Honda Britain saw him go on to win a total of 11 British Championships, dominating the UK scene in 1982, 1985 and 1987, also finishing a close second to Joey Dunlop in the 1984 World F1 Championship. He never quite managed a TT win, taking second three times, but he was twice a winner at both the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix.

Roger is proud to come from a council estate in Waltham, Grimsby

Silver Dream Racer

Roger did most of the riding for David Essex in the Silver Dream Racer motion picture. Some scenes were filmed during the 1979 Grand Prix at Silverstone, Northamptonshire. The Silver Dream Racer was a real motorcycle, designed by Barry Hart of the Barton company and built by James Valence.
