A Surprise Behind Every Cloud – 1974 Loudon Motorcycle Race Article



1974 ”A Suprise Behind Every Cloud” Loudon Motorcycle Racing 7-PG Article available at www.DadsVintageAds.com

When the New England rains came, they washed the Loudon weekend into confusion. But the races held the most startling developments: the impressive way Gary Scott and the new Harley-Davidson two-stroke won the lightweight event – and Gary Nixon’s domination of the 750 race with his Suzuki triple.

Photos:

Gary Nixon has the Loudon course wired perfectly into his circuitry. As master of the decreasing-radius hook, Nixon could pick the fastest lines around – rain or shine.

Gary Scott simply drove off with the 250 win. (Below) Water-cooled six-speed twin runs 34mm Mikunis and mounts pointless CDI on left end of crankshaft. (Right) Last minute disc brake rigging on Scott’s 12,000 rpm bike used Honda parts. (Bottom) Unlike Yamaha’s 250, Harley has individual interchangeable cylinder barrels.

View from the business end of the works Suzuki. Aluminum tank has normal tank breather and tube (with check valve) on right; larger breather used during fuel stops allows air to escape the tank quickly when it’s jet-filled.

Works Suzukis now have larger 38mm carburetors. Your GT-750 doesn’t have such a right-side casting – bet it doesn’t shift on the right either. (Below) Rear end of the Suzki rolls on cast magnesium wheel and Dunlop racing rubber – and stops with ventilated disc brake.

In the final, Roberts, though compressed by shrinking leathers, hung on to Nixon for a short while.

Gene Romero, usually overlooked as a real pavement star – which he is, slips his 250 Yamaha through a corner. Romero finished second in the 750 final.
