RE: Ernst Degner
Thanks for that Rich even though I don`t have Sky, it brought back many memories.
My first visit to the TT was in 1967 so never saw Ernst race there. I think his last TT was the year before but I have such fond memories of those wonderful 50cc machines screaming away with their tiny power band.
I think they had something like 16 gears and they were so delicate the attrition rate during a race was awful.
still miss the little beauties though.

Your welcome, 1962 was my first TT and I saw the 50cc race at Union Mills followed by the Senior happy days I was only 10 years old then I went with my dad and older brother and some of his mates and I've been going ever since 👍
