There's nowt as light as a hole, so add lightness.

Our lady of blessed acceleration, don't fail me now! - Elwood Blues

Nitro doesn't add power, it multiplies it! Bob Loux, running 10.07 secs @138mph on a 650 normally aspirated Triumph drag bike in 1965!

Getting ready for the off.

With Sprints and hillclimbs, the bike/car is lined up with the timing beam, and ‘chocked’ at the rear wheel to stop the vehicle moving backwards. Unlike drag racing, when the light goes green, the competitor has up to 60 secs to start, as the timing starts only when the light beam is broken (the Goodwood Festival of Speed is an example of this).

This year, the start line duties for the bikes were performed by members of the VMCC Sprint Section (Paul & Steve in this case) whereas in previous years it was the B&HMC.

We tend to like custom build here on MMM, so this is a 1962 Norton Featherbed frame with an ex-speedway Jawa sitting neatly within, don't think its run at Brighton before.

A Sprint Special ‘on a budget’.
Very tidy little RS250 Honda.
The previous owner retired, so the bike has a new owner/custodian, and he’s having fun campaigning it.

Blokes talking motorbikes...............


Mr Slam has the attentive ear of the gentleman in the white overalls.

The silencer is required to conform with Brighton's noise regulations ns is usually removed as the majority of sprints run without noise regs. (NICE!)

387 – Phil Steele – 1200cc Kawasaki – Phil broke traction and the bike went a "tad squirrely" – the next pics (nicely taken by John) show Phil trying to control his nitrous bike, which he fotunatly managed to do, he then gave it the beans to complete his run
