  • Description

    Full titles read: "South Africa's T.T. - is a real test for men and machines. Only 3 finished out of 17 starters."

    Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

    L/S at the starting line of a motorcycle race; a man drops a flag to start the race and we see numerous men running with their bikes, mounting them and riding off. A large crowd watches as the bikes generate a big cloud of dust. Several shots of riders in the race; the ones at the rear are barely visible in the dust rising from the road. Two competitors are seen speeding over what is presumably the finish line.
