Six Days Trial in Italy 1956

Product no.: 0272

This colour film featured the 15th overall win by the Auto Cycle Union British team. Colour report  featuring bikes from all over Europe. Emphasis is given to the service back up vehicles.  Terrains includes spectacular scenery  but testing roads  many of which were unsurfaced .  Emphasis on close inspection and sealing of components. Amazingly  9 Vespas did pretty well in their class rather to the surprise of the Commentator,

  H W Louis the Editor of Motor Cycling   gives a typically British stiff upper lip commentary. By the sound of it  started as  a written report read by a print journalist.  One disadvantage is that the film was obviously shot without sound so there is no sound of  motor cycles in action. . The effect is rather like watching television with sound off,. A real treat for Classic British Bike enthusiasts.  The scoring and trophy’s mean that  a number if different categories were to be won but once again Great Britain won against teams from 10 countries.
