Ian Lougher Enhances Momentous Oliver’s Mount Record

Ian Lougher enhanced his record, as the most successful rider in history at Oliver’s Mount, at the recent Cock of The North Road Races.

Piloting a Moto 3 NSF 250 Honda, Ian secured back to back ultra lightweight victories, following two top class highly accomplished performances.

His Oliver’s Mount wins total, now stands at a quite incredible 136.

Although he perhaps not the force he once was around the mount, he is still extremely hard to beat, at the road race circuit known to many, as a mini TT.

In the last ten years some of Ian’s most iconic Scarborough moments have included in my opinion, overall David Jefferies cup supersport victory during the 2009 Scarborough Gold Cup, finishing runner up in the 2010 Steve Henshaw international gold cup.

Plus leading home mount maestro Guy Martin in the 2006 Ian Watson spring cup encounter.

Looking towards the rest of the 2016 roads season, meetings coming up for Ian include the Classic TT Races.

Ian is all set to compete in the newly formed lightweight classic TT, which sees an anticipated grid in excess of 50 two stroke mounted riders, in action on the Mountain Course.

Ian’s mount for highly anticipated new race, is the Laylaw Racing RS250 Honda, whilst the senior classic race, sees the hugely respected rider MV Agusta mounted.
