stormin Norman Dennis's Triumph built 1965-66
the olympus super charged t100 engine, run a 9.6s quarter back in 1971
Barons speed shop was there with their beautiful 50s inspired little red Triumph, built by Dick Smith and piloted by Peter Allen,and of course not forgetting Maurice Brierleys Vincent, a 1148cc with two grey flash heads feeding a C142 supercharger, not been impaired with one leg ,in the 60s this former army officer and a wizard broke many records with this machine and became the first sidecar to average 100 mile an hour for the standing start kilometre, This machine now belongs to that VM CC and is piloted by Chris Illman, This really was a standout event in Santa pod's calendar and should be a must for next year. It was steeped in history and had a really friendly atmosphere with a big screen playing vintage films followed by a fairground in the evening to round off the days events! (from Southsiders)
