Background: 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.
As in the 1969 event, second place went to English rider Peter Brown. He finished more than three and a half minutes behind Schauzu at an average speed of 85.97 MPH (138.35 KPH).
Klaus Enders, of West Germany (No.6), set a fierce pace at the start breaking the lap record set up last year by Schauzu. But on the second lap he dropped out with Battery trouble.
