Highs and Lowood

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Great Lowood article in OBA 72. The great long straight would cause mo­tors to cool and lose power es­pe­cially on methanol. A few had the fins re­moved. It was com­mon to get more speed on Dunlop straight. Also there were cut down car tyres em­bed­ded in the ground on the in­side of the cor­ners which re­flected your ex­haust note and sounded like they were bark­ing at you like a dog. I never raced there but rode mates’ bikes at nu­mer­ous prac­tice days. So sim­ple then. Sign an in­dem­nity from the car club that ran the meet­ings and go for it. No fees or re­stric­tions. Noel Harris. Beaudesert, Qld.
