races this Rudge Ulster in Sprints and Hillclimbs

The owner races this Supercharged MG
on the Ramparts of the historic town of Angouleme

This Vincet Grey Flash Outfit is ex John Surtees

This was built as a Bonneville Salt Flats Racer


  1. Hi John, the Rudge Ulster is raced by Jean Luc in sprints and hillclimbs. The Zenith Gradua is Doug Barker's old bike with the famous "coffee grinder" gear knob. The Vincent Grey Flash outfit is ex John Surtees and the radial engine bike was being built as a Bonneville salt racer. The boat tailed supercharged MG he races at the Angouleme race of the ramparts. It's a hard life for some !!!

  2. Thanks for that Joe,I'll add the info to the relevant pics
