Last autumn an unusual motorsports event in the UK – one that glided under the radar – was ‘scrapped’. Literally.

Back to the future

The golden era of road racing – 1970s – was known of the heroes like 15 times World Champion Giacomo Agostini, 13 times World Champion Ángel Nieto, 7 times World Champion Phil Read and many others.
