Incredible footage Rik. It was truly a different sport back then.
I find myself watching this and thinking, 'how could they let people race like that?'. Then I think to myself, why am I surprised? In Ireland we still race motorbikes on closed street road circuits. Lamp posts, walls, trees, buildings everywhere. I've seen too many fatalities as a spectator, and still this racing goes on in 2012. That video is from a bygone era, but a trip to a motorbike road race in Ireland today and you will see the same dangers, the same crashes and unfortunately the same results.
