Jimmy Simpson, 23th of June 1934, 350cc TT races Assen

Jimmy Simpson won the 350cc races at Assen on the 23th of June 1934. His motorcycle is an M40 International works racer.

Pushing the bike into the paddock. Note the poster advertising the German Grand Prix ("Grosser Preis Deutschland"). An unsympathetic bloke, wearing a helmet with a swastika, seems to be pushing a British rider into the gutter; Simpson is not impressed but this is a sign on the wall if ever there was one.
