Onboard footage from Brands Hatch Lansdowne British Historic Grand Prix. Race 1 from Sunday 31st August - Again Mike Russell riding Richard Adams Manx. Rubbish start but a good close race, ended 4th, ran out of skill and bravery to pass Luke for 3rd. 54s lap in there somewhere...
Manx Norton Onbaord Brands Hatch Race 2
Onboard footage from Brands Hatch Lansdowne British Historic Grand Prix.
Race 2 from Sunday 31st August - Again Mike Russell riding Richard Adams
Manx. Just to prove that race 1's bad start wasn't a fluke I did it
again.....Just as much action and this time upto 3rd, however I did do the
my bike's faster than yours on the
sprint to the line. Watch out for the pass on Chris Palmer at the top of
paddock, along with 2 other backmarkers, the video doesn't show quite how
'exciting' that was from behind the bars. If I get a chance I will put some
more up soon.

1953 Norton Manx 30M Vintage Motorcycle Test Drive
The bike has a featherbed frame, roadholder forks, and a 500 cc single
DOHC engine. Starting requires effort. It was bred for the track so there
are no niceties such as a compression release valve or kick start lever. It
is a matter of putting it in 4th so the rear wheel doesn't lock up, and
pushing it as fast as possible, hopefully with the aid of a friend.
Tickling the carb repeatedly resulted in fouling the plug repeatedly. We
stopped tickliing the carb. The spark advance must be set to full retard,
meaning pulling the thumb lever back towards rider. With an enthusiastic
enough push we were rewarded with a few throaty explosions before the bike
roared to life.
The bike is light and responsive. The castor laced Exhaust fumes smell delicious. And the noise,
what a sound! Riding it is an experience that transports one back to the
heyday of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy race, the birthplace of the Manx
