The Dutch TT 1954
Assen still inspires great feats from the competitors who ride there but in the ‘50s when crowds reached upwards of 150,000 around its 10-mile length the fanatical supporters urged their heroes on to superhuman efforts.
This atmospheric film shows the final World Championship meeting at the old track before the purpose-built short circuit came into use in ’55.
Ray Amm, Bob McIntyre, Werner Haas and Rupert Hollaus are all seen in full flight but it is Geoff Duke who proves to be the man of the meeting.
