Product description

The BP Video Library is a treasure trove of historic motorcycle films, mostly made to promote Castrol products.

This collection brings together fascinating shorts covering everything from the Banbury Run to the Isle of Man TT.

Starting in the early 1950s and going through to the early 1970s, this collection takes in the full sweep of motorcycling in the post-War years.

Whether it's sidecars in wheel-to-wheel action at Mallory, club scrambles in rural Worcestershire or boarding the ferry to the Isle of Man, the cameras capture a vanished but oh so familiar world.

Particular gems include footage of the first sidecar TT since 1925, held on the tricky Clypse Course and featuring the TT's first ever female competitor Ingeborg Stoll-Laforge.

Each film is a time capsule that will transport you to a time of simpler bikes, hard suspension and huge crowds at every event. One thing that hasn't changed in the intervening years is the pure joy of motorcycling, which shines through in these wonderful little movies.
