Videos and V'Logs

 

 

This page gives links to occasional Youtube videos (or associated RacingVincent Webpage articles that go with the videos) I have posted on our RacingVincent Youtube page.

As you will see, I am not great with a video camera - but was considering the occasional 'How To' or restoration video for questions frequently asked - email me at paul.norman@racingvincent.co.uk if there is a subject you would like to see covered

- Lockdown V-log 1: 20/03/20

I do not normally do videos like this . . . but as we are in lockdown like everyone else, it seemed appropriate.  More to follow, with less of me!

- Brooklands Motorcycle Day Visit 03/07/16

Back in 2016 I took a couple of bikes along to a Brooklands motorcycle day in Weybridge, Surrey.  This evocative race track, which closed to competitive racing back in 1939 is one of my favourite venues and this video shows a bit of its history as well as some footage of runs up the Test Hill on the day

- VMCC BHR Mallory Meeting 15/04/12

I uploaded this some time ago, but recently upgraded it to a better quality version.  This is the last vintage BHR meeting I raced in myself . . . on my 1938 Racing Inter.  At this time Ian Bain, Mike Farrel and Phil Crump were still racing and Ian and Mike's pre-war bikes are shown in the pits before the race.  I had a 5th place in my first race, but engine went sick on warm up lap to second race - which subsequently turned out to be terminal with a broken crankpin:
