Geoff Duke at Blandford Camp 1950

Earlier on in the year Geoff Duke had shown the competition the might of the Norton 'Featherbed' frame  for the first time. He returned with the Norton works team August 7th to Blandford Camp for the Blackmoor Vale MCC Motor Cycle Road Races. Once again he won the Senior 500cc class. Not such an achievement as back on April 29th as this time the competition was mostly of local club competitors rather than other works teams in an international meeting.

This post is a taste of things to come, I'm working on a potted history of motor cycle racing at Blandford. Keep watching...
