Feel the classic noise

Published: 01 April 2006

Feel the noise of classic racers at the Sounds on Saturday event at Brooklands on May 13.

You’ll hear examples from 1908 to the present day and, the organisers say - even a glimpse at what future motorcycles may look and sound like (vacuum cleaner, anyone?).

30 machines will be “on parade” including a 1908 Triumph, a 1928 Big Port AJS (ex Brooklands racer), the Pat Driscoll LPD1 Norton and sidecar, the 1928 Clive Lones Morgan (first 3-wheeler to lap Brooklands at 100mph), Manx Norton, 7R AJS and the 1952 Vincent “works” record breaker.
