  • "The imagery from this golden era is terrific" Old Bike Magazine Australia

Product description

A rare colour film from acclaimed producer Sam Coles  of the eight 'international classics' that comprised the 1951 World Motorcycle Road Racing Championships.  Featuring the Spanish, Swiss, Belgian, French,  Ulster and Nations GPs, plus the Dutch and  IOM TT.  Geoff Duke and his single-cylinder Norton challenge the multi-cylinder Gilera, Moto Guzzi and MV Agusta teams in some thrilling dices.   

As 'Motor Cycling' said at the time "Contains some remarkable fine wet-weather shots of the Swiss and Ulster Grands Prix and gives a most effective impression of the high-speed descent of Bray Hill in the Isle of Man. Geoff Duke's lightning getaway at the start of the 350cc Belgian GP is brilliantly filmed."

Complete with original commentary by Graham Walker, father of Murray.

"This classic film sponsored by Castrol is a wonderful record of the 1951 World Championships, with action from all eight rounds. Filmed in colour and with commentary by TT hero and father of Murray, Graham Walker, the film shows British star Geoff Duke's epic duels on his works Nortons to win both 350 and 500 titles against the might of Gilera and MV Augusta. It also captures highlights from the 125cc, 250cc and Sidecar classes. The commentary sounds a bit old school these days but the imagery from this golden era is terrific" Old Bike Magazine Australia 2012
