We’re now in 2017, which means its the 50th, Golden, anniversary of the 1967 Zandvoort Motorcycle Sprint.

To mark this, it looks like there will be a number of British riders/machines heading for Drachten (Holland) for the weekend of September 29th thru to October 1st with the idea of running a demo class similar to that at Dragstalgia for historic / old / interesting sprint and drag race bikes.

There’s an interesting article, written in 2009 by the late Phil Manzano, relating to the English Motorcycle Sprint Team on the VMCC Sprint Section website

There’s an appendix written by John Hobbs which interestingly says the picture in this article was taken at Lydd airport in May 1970.
