Feeling the pressure

With reference to the article by Richard Rosenthal on Suzuki 50cc racing motorycles, in the June 2020 issue, I attach a photograph taken in the paddock at the TT in 1962.

It show the Suzuki works team and my good friend, the late Sandy Thomas, Avon Tyre Technician, testing the tyre pressures of number four, ridden by M Ichino.

In black leathers, head bowed down, in the background behind the chap in flat cap taking a photo, is Ernst Degner talking to Hans Georg Anscheidt. Degner went on to win the race.
