Davenport 2011 Board Track 1/2-Mile Main Event

What can you say, as well as being devoid of brakes and clutch, this is just such an insight into the raw danger of this period. Huge credit to this rider for giving a window on our ancestors race machines and battles!
Also amazing that the most appropriate colouring and sepia hue has filled this movie.
I really appreciate this You Tube posting.

Just to show the type of machine, the following is a posting from last year. Not the same machine, but it gives an idea of what you are hitching a ride on!........Boardtrack speeds ~ 126mph!
