A barrel in a bucket!
All through practice for the 1969 Ultra Lightweight race, Fred Launchbury's Bultaco had been troubled with seizures; after most sessions the barrel was removed and honed. Come race day, Fred finished third but, in post-race inspection, the bike was found to be a few thou oversize, The race organisers allowed time for the barrel to coll, even providing a bucket of water to see if they could cool it down. To no avail, the bike was still oversize. Fred was excluded and third place went to Gary Dickinson (Honda)
