I had posted a question on another topic item on this site, but am not sure it got seen by many. I have read in a couple of publications about the return of Norton to England and the claims of Mr. Stuart Garner about the building of a facility in Donington, UK, and production beginning sometime this year. Since these articles are by now a few months old, I am wondering if anyone in the UK, perhaps near Donington Park, has an update on any progress that is being made by Mr. Garner. He comments about building and selling both an updated Dreer Commando and a rotary for the public by mid-year seems to be quite a leap. Even with deep pockets, it took Mr. Bloor many years to get Triumph into production. The Dreer Commando appeared to need a number of updates, and require additional testing. Nonetheless, I hope he is successful. I am just fearful of another unhappy ending for the Norton name.
