Tom Loughridge's Race Days

Isle of Man TT  - page 2

scan9ss.jpg (27775 bytes) In 1970 Ken Armstrong and myself again rode the T20 at Thruxton and finished fifth in the 250 class. Frank Whiteway and Stan Woods pulled off their tasty win on Eddie’s T500 in the 500 class. Ex Suzuki works rider Stuart Graham had earlier won the 500 production class at the Ulster, Northwest 200 road race on the same bike. The TT produced a 7th place in the 250 production race on the T20. Charles Mortimer won on the Ducati and Stan Woods managed 3rd on Eddies, Crooks Suzuki T250, while Frank pulled of his superb win on the T500. My T20 cruised to another lowly finish in the international 250. As always it ran like a dream but was just not fast enough against pukka racers.
