Gus Kuhn 1925
Page updated 20-Jul-2015

On March 14th "More than 60 competitors, including some of the best-known motor-cycle riders in the country, competed for the Rough Riding Championship in the Southern Scott Scramble. The Course, of about 30 miles, had to be covered twice and the entire journey was over moorland. Practically the whole time the competitors were in imminent danger of being thrown from their machines. Among the best of the ascents were those of Mr Gus Kuhn (Velocette)." Gus won the Northern Cup for the best performance by Southern rider. [Times 16/3/25]

Gus's outing to the Isle of Man was not a success as neither his Velocette in the Junior TT or the Douglas in the Senior, finished.

In August Gus was competing in the 500cc Belgian Grand Prix at Spa on the Douglas.

Gus also won a Gold Medal in the Surbiton Motor Club Grand Cup event.

At the end of November Gus is at Camberley again competing in the Thompson Cup Trial. Gus won the premier award as well as the Team Prize on a snow-bound course.
