Ian Lougher: 40 years of TT Experience (Part One)

In the first instalment of Ian Lougher’s conversation with Chris Pritchard and Steve Plater, the guys focus on the early days of his career. The Welshman’s had 136 TT starts, 103 finishes, 29 podiums and 10 wins across five decades.

Ian tells the guys why he enjoyed early morning practice sessions back in the day and explains why he never felt nervous sitting on Glencrutchery Road waiting for the tap on the shoulder.

With his dad and brother both riding non-competitively, Ian shares some of his first experiences of motorbikes, including a situation which resulted in him getting banned from the roads at the age of 13. He also explains how he discovered road racing and the Isle of Man through the Southern 100 - where he’s still the most successful ever competitor with 32 wins.

After almost 40 years of involvement with the TT, Ian shares his thoughts on the changes he’s seen in that time - some of which he favours more than others.
