1933 Waiheke TT video
« on: 24.09. 2019 12:12 »
the local bsa club recently sent round this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAGnTCjNR_o&feature=youtu.be
features a blue star and a lot of dust - worth a watch if you haven't seen it

FYI Waiheke is a small settled island 40mins ferry trip from downtown auckland, more famous these days for vineyards and beaches. But back in the day they ran the The New Zealand Tourist Trophy Race from 1931 to 1950. more here: http://www.barnstormers.co.nz/525/the-new-zealand-tourist-trophy-race-waiheke-island-1931-1950/. gotta love that old film footage
