The 1931 Assen TT races

From "50 jaar TT. H. Harmsze"

Woods chasing Gleave
-JdK- Two wins for Norton in Assen in 1931; Stanley Woods (45) won the 350cc class after Gleave wrecked the engine of his New Imperial running out of oil in one of the last laps. Tim Hunt (88) was the winner in the 500cc class. Note the typical Norton girder forks (with a damper knob on each side of the lower spindle) fitted to 1931 Works TT machines.
