Blandford Historic Bike Racing- Help needed!

Discussion in 'Cars, Bikes 'n AFVs' started by Brandt, Sep 21, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was recently told by an old classic car & bike restorer that there used to be a motorbike road race run at Blandford camp. I have done a bit of research and I believe the course (for those of you who know the camp) went alongside the airfield, down to pond bottom, then up the hill past the running track.

    Is there anyone out there who remembers this, when it was run, or who was involved? The Royal Sigs museum doesn't have anything about it.
     
  2. Try Google,shitloads on there...........
     
  3. Racedown road ! My old uncle comes form Six Penny Handley and told how he used ot go there and watch the bike racing in the 1930's ironic as i only left there 2 years ago after my 22,will ask him about it .
