  • Short Summary

    Motorcycling scenes around a small town in Eire.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Leinster '200'. International Motor Cycle Race won by C. W. Manders on a 248 C.C. Rudge."

    Dublin ?, Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    Motor cyclists give their bikes a running start as they leave the starting line of the race. Crowds are gathered on either side of the road to watch.

    Closer shots of the racers starting they are given a push by team mates.

    Good shots of the motorbikes speeding around the streets of a town (I'm not sure this is Dublin as the paperwork implies). There is a large banner advertising Texaco oil. One of the riders fiddles with his bike as he comes round the corner. More shots of the race in progress around small town streets.

    The race moves out into the countryside and we see racers in country lanes.

    The races are seen coming along the final straight in town. One rider is acclaimed as the winner - presumably Mr C W Manders.

    C/U Winning rider surrounded by other riders and members of the crowd, they raise their hands in a cheer.
