We have been lucky to uncover a copy of the 7 August 1930 edition of ‘the Motor Cycle‘ that now resides in our growing ISDT collection of original archive material. Such copies of the magazines for the inter war years are getting increasingly difficult to find and when they turn up their owners normally expect substantial amounts of cash before they part with them.
The magazine has been scanned and the images are now placed in the ISDT 1930 page and is the first substantial find of material on that event was based in Grenoble then moved across Southern Central Europe criss crossing wild Alpine passes.

We are always grateful for any offers of scanned articles from original copies of the old magazines which not only inform visitors to the site but assist in historical research into the sport of motorcycling and the ISDT

Dear Sirs, Further details of the 1930 ISDT route plus simple maps can be found on pp 60 & 61 of’The MotorCycle’ for July 10 1930 and a further article, a ‘Guide to the International’ can be found on pp 122-123 of “The MotorCycle’ for July 24, 1930.
The maps contain sufficient information for me to speculate on riding the route on my 1929 Excelsior but so far no joy.
Cheers, Bob McGrath
