    Shots from the Junior TT motorcycle race in the Isle of Man.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Isle of Man. Faster than ever ... & an All-British Victory! Foreign entries 'nowhere' - in Junior TT Races, won by dare-devil B.Sc. of Dublin University - 23 year old H G Tyrell Smith - on a Rudge averaging 71.08 for 3 hrs 43 mins."

    Isle of Man.

    Men line up at the start of the Junior T.T. motor cycle race. They have a push start.

    Good shots of motorcycle racers out on the Tourist Trophy course around the Isle of Man.

    One of the bikes crosses the finish line to win the race.

    Shot of two riders at the end of the race (one is presumably H G Tyrell Smith who rode a Rudge motorbike). Them tow men kiss in a joking manner.

    MS of other riders in the race. (Two of the riders wear helmets with Velocette written on them).

    Sound Track Missing.
