    Seigfried Schauzu of West Germany won the 750 cc Side-Car event in the Isle on Man Trophy Motor Cycle Race Series on Monday (June 8). It is the second successive year Schauzu has won this event.

    Schauzu, on a B.M.W. machine, covered the three laps of the 113-mile (181 kilometres) mountain circuit in a record time of one hour fifteen minutes and eighteen seconds. His average speed was 90.20 MPH (145.12 KPH). His sidecar passenger was H. Schneider.
