Gus Kuhn 1922
Page updated 12-Jan-2011

In 1922 Gus rode a Sun Vitesse in the TT 250cc Lightweight class but over-lightening of engine components gave rise to excessive vibration, which caused the fuel lines to fracture. Nevertheless Gus and W J Lord finished in 12th and 13th places after wrapping handkerchiefs around the fuel pipes to staunch the leaking. [Thanks to for this information]
