Motorcycles and Race Cars
Mid-June is motorcycle time in New Hampshire and the Racing History Preservation Group had a strong presence at NHMS. On weekend one, Board Member Bob Coy promoted vintage motorcycle racing and Ray Boissoneau brought the Dumo’s Desire midget to our exhibit. Some of the biker crowd quipped that the car, with its huge engine hanging out the side, looked like a motorcycle with four wheels. Dick Berggren worked Saturday’s events while Ray Boissoneau had help working the Sunday show. Paul Giblin organized a ride from downtown Wiers Beach to the track which produced $300 for the museum and increased awareness of our project.
The following weekend, at the 90th annual Loudon Classic motorcycle races, Boissoneau again brought a spectacular car, this time his beautiful Ranger aircraft engine powered Big Car which is pictured. The show was worked by (left) Bob Coy, (right) Jack Eastwood, Gil Coraine and Ken Smith.
Many of the arrangements for the two weekends were orchestrated by Mark Hann. A huge “thank you” to all who helped share the story of the North East Motor Sports Museum with the biker crowd that came to Loudon.
