Sand racing in Wales.

Des James, of Talybont. A top scrambler, Des took Gold in the 1949 ISDT on a rare 250 Class Royal Enfield Clipper, we can tell this pic is of the 1950 event, since Des has a Triumph Single with it's dynamo in place, 1950 had some nighttime sections requiring lights!

Jimmy Lanyon of Jersey, raced Bill Green's AJS plus his 350 Triumph single spectacularly on road race plus Sand tracks & in 1952 he rode a 499 Norton #016 at Eppynt TT Circuit on his way to compete in Isle of Man.
C E Edwards is listed as the Driver of this Brough Superior Combination, picture from Dave Martin, a Programme from circa 1930.
