• Short Summary

    Good coverage of the RAC Ulster TT motor car racing - won by C R Whitcroft in a Riley.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Ulster. Fiercest Road Race in History! C. R. Whitcroft (Riley) wins the R.A.C. International T.T. race over 410 mile ARDS Course - Time, 4 hrs 58 mins 4 secs. Speed 74.25."

    Ulster, Northern Ireland.

    Motorcars race off from the start of the RAC (Royal Automobile Club) Tourist Trophy event.

    The cars speed round a corner covered in adverts for lots of oil and tyre companies - Dunlop, Pratts, BP, Castrol.

    Crowds have turned out to watch the thrilling spectacle of the motor racing on the country roads. Lots of good shots of the cars around the course.

    The winner of the Ulster TT - C R Whitcroft in his Riley is greeted with the chequered flag. He and his co-driver raise their hands in triumph.

    (Sound track runs out)

    C/U Whitcroft - still in his racing gear - he says a few (sadly missing) words.
