George Brown Memorial Sprint Meeting at East Kirkby

The rescheduling of the Coventry section trip to East Kirkby from Saturday 10 September 2016 to Sunday 11 to avoid heavy rain paid off, as the Sunday was cold but bright and dry. Five members of the section, including three on Vincents, were rewarded by an excellent display of classic sprint and drag racing machinery being used in anger.
The highlights for me were of course the Vincents, but I was also delighted by two others. The first was the extraordinary Dragwaye, powered by a supercharged 1300cc VW engine. I had read about this machine but never seen it. This was it's first outing for 30 years, and it was very loud. The other bike was the bike I dreamt of building when I was 16, -a supercharged, nitro burning C15!
All in all an excellent day out out well worth repeating in 2017. Rob Staley.
