SUMMARY

Born in Portland in 1905, Raymond F. Tauscher (Tauser in international press) began riding motorcycles in 1920 inspired by racing at the Gresham Speed Bowl in Oregon. His competitive racing career began in 1923 when he won northwest regional championships on flat tracks and hill climbs. His US titleholder status took him around the globe five times where in 1931 he held four international championship titles in Australia, England, and France. Ray returned to America in 1934 where he was a leading proponent of motorcycle racing on the east and west coasts of the United States eventually retiring in Portland where he died in 1981 from a brain tumor. This 17-minute documentary tells Ray’s life story imagined as if he is recounting his life and racing career. Ray’s family provide his scrapbooks and photo albums making this film possible.

This film will be released to general public in January 2021. Stay Tuned!
