Background: Visnews filmed this month the first motorcycle scramble over 1000 metres scramble to be held at the Casa de Campo, Madrid. The hazardous test was made more difficult by thick mud over the course following a heavy rainfall.
The track is a narrow one to keep down excessive speed according to the rules of the organisers, the Royal Moto Club of Spain and the Sports Committee of the Spanish Federation
Top aces take part in it with machines suitable for the violent exercise involved; they are 125 cc, 250 cc and others of a higher charge.
The fall in the mud is far from agreeable... To put to test the drivers' ability, difficult passes such as this one abound.
Diablo Rojo and Juan Erizalde won in second And third categories. The veteran Jose Antonio Maseras was absolute winner. His record was of 37 minutes 54 seconds in the 18 laps resulting an average of 28 kms. 496 metres.
