I was a gifted to this world in 1956, you lucky people! and as such I like to see how life was back then, so always keep my eye open for something worth sharing. Well......

When listening to the video of Mike Hawthorn, that static background noise sounds like it's coming from the ignition.
I remember hearing similar on my old AM car radio years ago....
Great video by the way.
Thanks for posting.

I've never owned anything made in 1956. Somehow I just don't trust anything made in the year which produced me.

The 1956 documentary shows the pits at Le Mans much the same s they were the year before when Hawthorn's actions brought about the horrific accident where parts of Levegh's 300SLR Mercedes went through the crowd at 100 mph plus with devastating effect


1954 Norton Dominator 88 cafe - Yamaha wheels, Lyta tank ( project in progress)
1969 Triumph Bonneville
Currently 6 other non-Brit machines.
Past history includes 11 Brit and 13 non-Brit machines.
Some impressive and some just silly.

" Only motorcyclists, they can ride in the gutter "

Or perhaps Hawthorn is filtering
