    Item title reads: "Ulster Grand Prix. World's Motor-Cycle "speed King's" compete in thrilling race. Jimmy Shaw, an Ulsterman won averaging 74.18 miles per hour."

    Ireland

    M/S motor- cyclists on their machines with officials, lined up on the road. At the start line some are push started by race officials. Shot of riders coming up the road towards camera, with a large crowd lining the roads on both sides. One rider comes off on bend. He has a nasty fall and seems to bounce off a tree. He is helped up by officials. Another rider careers off the road and disappears, flying into a hedge, - officials run in to help. The winner is cheered over the finishing line. C/U of winner, Jimmy Shaw, in interview.

    Note: The crash sequence with the rider disappearing looks really funny.
