An intriguing early photo that I have no details for...
Bob Foster, A2, during a 1946 scramble.
Larry Devlin from Northern Ireland emailed me with the comment..."The photo was taken in Verviers, Belgium in August 1946, and riding A1 is Bill Nicholson ( Billy Nick) from Northern Ireland....thanks Larry...DQ
Another evocative photograph showing an untidy start to an event on 4th July 1949 at Haddenham airfield circuit.
Australian Ted Carey, Bathurst 1952 on what appears to be a MOV Velocette. Ted by then had his special 250 DOHC MOV based racer and I suspect this was a bike he brought along to do some practice on.
My old Velocette Thruxton, bought new by me in Feb.1967 and sold to the pictured rider, Tony Keene. The photo appears to be at an Australian Velocette OC National Rally at Bundanoon in 1986.
