Isle of Man TT races, 1934

Jimmy Simpson at speed at the Isle of Man TT, 1934. In the Senior, Nortons would finish at the first (Jimmie Gutrie), second (Jimmy Simpson) and fifth place (Vic Brittain). The motorcycle is a works M30 International; there seems to an additional strut securing the front of the engine to the frame. The photo below shows the Senior team: Guthrie with number 29, Simpson with 36 and I guess number 33 is Brittain. (Top pic contributed by Dennis)
