So here are a few pictures from my old 127 Brownie box camera.
Just to start off our very own Jerry making the wheels go round and round.

All the more impressive if you look at this close up which highlights his lithe athletic physique so common among racers.
Not seen too often these days a two stroke SAAB outfit.
A real Triton perhaps with Tri standing for Triple as well as Triumph in this case.
A 350 Gold Star which despite its fairly mediocre looks was really flying and won the 350 race against the gathered throngs of Yamahahahaha's and Hodna's.
Some serious machinery was in action and being ridden hard, very hard.
As you all know I am a sucker for a racing single, and particularly a Manx Norton.
We even had some close racing, literally.
Unfortunately not everybody managed to stay upright. The track has become slippery due to a light shower. Nobody was hurt thankfully.
Racing is dangerous and not just the risk of falling off. Other bikes are still on the move as you can see.
Another little mishap. "Hey chaps has anybody seen a chain lying around?"
For those that like their singles lying down here is a Guzzi. You really do not see many about, even less in this beautiful condition and yet fewer in this condition being thrashed around a race circuit.
I just thought you might like to see a close up of this fabulous looking Guzzi.
Ooooopsy just a bit bumpy today.
Here is that SAAB in action for the three wheelers among you.
Just to finish here is our very own "Wellard Rocker" still going round.
