This is a classic shot of a rider blasting down Bray Hill in the Isle of Man - the bike is a New Imperial - very fast and popular in the 1930’s. - Les Archer junior, later became a very successful Scrambles rider on a very special Norton.

Amazing quality in this photo, which would have been taken with a “Plate type” camera - long before film and digital stuff that makes things so easy these days.

The British Super bike Championships are on this weekend at Donnington Park - and the big surprise has been “The Flying Dutchman” Van Der Mark - Taking both his races ahead of some very fast Brits.
