    Motorcycle racing at Ulster Grand Prix - England won.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Motor Cycling at 70 miles an hour. For 205 miles. World's finest riders and machines in thrilling race for Ulster Grand Prix - and England won".

    Near Belfast, Northern Ireland.

    M/S of start of a motorbike race; the riders drive off two at a time, stewards give them a push to help start the bikes. Various shots of motorcycle race around country roads, spectators line the route, some standing outside their houses. Panning shot follows one motorcyclist as he takes a corner too fast and skids into the bank at the side of the road.

    More shots of the race, including winners crossing the finishing line. C/U of the winning motorcyclist sitting on his bike, puffing a pipe. Lots of people crowd around him, they seem more interested in the camera though!

    Cuts exist - see separate record for details.
