Tom Loughridge - R.I.P.
[Image: TomL-1973 27ff.jpg]
Tom on the Crooks Suzuki in 1973


It is with sadness that I have discovered today, that Forum member and contributor Tom Loughridge passed away in late April

Tom was an avid Isle of Man racing participant, starting with the Manx Grand Prix in 1966 and still competing in 1982 in the TT itself.


Toms full list of participation can be found in the Manx Heritage Database - HERE






On behalf of all who use TTwebsite, I take this opportunity to extend our sincerest sympathy to the Family and Friends of Tom.

Malcolm

Gutted to read this. His shop was very local to me, and I have many memories ( some personal) of his shop and family.

I remember him at Oulton Park in the sixties it was when the Suzuki super six first came out I couldn't believe that a standard road bike could waste out and out race bikes but he did he won everything that day in his class. RIP Tom.

I was sad to hear that Tom had passed away. His last years were not easy ones, troubled by failing eyesight.
I remember him as a Honda dealer, on the Wirral I think, and very outspoken at dealer seminars.
He helped many riders though his dealership, I think Charlie Williams briefly rode for him
Rest in peace Tom, he was a decent bloke.

Tom was an amazing character who had a full and exciting life. I had the pleasure of visiting him and his first wife, Ann, a couple of times in Northern Ireland. Special memories for me.
