This piece about one of the last sprint bikes campaigned by George Brown comes from the pages of a 1966 edition of Motor Cycle magazine. Before coming of age (55) to hold an FIM licence, George decided to build Super Nero and Extra Nero to run 200 mph using a Vincent engine and frame. Did he do it? Well perhaps someone on here will be able to confirm that. And, I'm almost certain that these two bikes George created are currently on display at the National Motor Cycle Museum, Solihull!

The following report, again from Motor Cycle takes us to Duxford in 1964 for one of the final events of the National Sprint Association season. Although there were no record times to speak of some of the organsiers and assembled press made a few runs on various machines, including timekeeper Alan Nash who later went on to race a competitive Pro Stock Bike in the eighties.
