Tom Loughridge's Race Days
|Isle of Man TT - page 7|
|In addition to
the TT I raced the T500 at Oulton Park Internationals, the Isle of Man Southern 100 and
100s of other races. The engine, gearbox and clutch never once failed.
Martin Crooks then found the bike in 1992 as a café racer road bike and restored it to the original condition and spec as Stuart Graham, Frank Whiteway, Stan Woods and myself had raced it in 1970/71. It is now in Murrays motor cycle museum in the Isle of Man.
I never won a TT but lived to race there. but having only sight in one eye since birth, I did have a bit of a handicap and my own forged doctors stamp for my international licence medical form. Thats my excuse anyway.
