    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Kirkcaldy, Scotland.

    Shots of men on motorcycles preparing their machines before the start of a race. Pan across the pit area. Men ride their motor bikes on a circuit on a beach. Men in cars also have a race or two along the beach. More motorcycle racing (these look like camera rushes rather than a cut newsreel despite the titles.) Views of the crowd.
