1926: Nortons on trial.

Norton wanted to publicise its ohv models. No problem: assemble them from parts chosen by the ACU, charge through the routes of all three MCC’ long-distance classic trials, pop down to Brooklands to pick up 32 world records and finish up with a fourth successive Maudes Trophy. The firm even published a booklet with a blow-by-blow account. It’s a ripping yarn which you’ll find in the 1926 features section.
