Rugged actor Richard Wyler competes in a motorcycle race at Thruxton Circuit.
Fade in to M/S of actor Richard Wyler walking from the entrance of Scotland Yard in London as commentator says "Meet the man from Interpol"; C/U as he lights a cigarette.
We mix into M/S of Richard on a motorbike, getting it into position for a race at Thruxton Circuit near Andover in Hampshire; he wears biking leathers and crash helmet. As the men line up for the race on the opposite side of the tarmac to their bikes Richard chats to other entrants; at the signal they all run to their bikes, start them up and zoom off. Various shots of the bikers speeding along the track. A smart young man in the pit clicks a stop watch and shows it to another man.
M/S of a man in a boiler suit and bowler hat in the pit holding out a slate with the number 10 on it (number of laps). Richard comes in for a pit stop, chats to a man with a quiff (shot list says he's a singing celebrity - not recognised by this cataloguer), then rides off again, watched by a group of men, one of whom is wearing flip-flops.
More motorcycle racing shots on the track; the bikes speed past a man holding a chequered flag. M/S of a crowd of spectators sitting on the grass; mostly biker boys in leathers. M/S of Richard talking to his mechanic in the pit.
Note: on file is a resume of Richard Wyler's film and television work; the opening scene was a reference to his starring role in the TV series 'The Man From Interpol'. Also on file is a programme from this 500 mile race at Thruxton.
