New Year’s Honours - Southern 100 Stalwart Awarded MBE
Southern 100 Stalwart Phil Taubman has been awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Year’s Honours List for services to Motorcycle sport and the Manx Community.

Phil Taubman got involved with the first running of the Southern 100 in 1955, assisting in setting out the now famous Billown Course for what the then media called an ambitious three-race programme, which was successfully run on Thursday 14th July.

At that time the races were run by the Southern Motorcycle Club Committee which Philip joined in 1961 and followed on by becoming a member of the Southern MCC Race Committee in 1964.

In 1968 he became the Club Catering Officer and he still cooks a good bacon and egg breakfast!

Other positions held by Philip were in 1970 he was Paddock Marshal and in 1975 became Chairman of the Race Committee and then in 1978 he was made Clerk of the Course for the Billown Course.
