the Speedtracktales Library

In the updating of this site, I found that much of the material donated originated from old motorcycle magazine reports. Some of the scans were of a poor quality, and also there appeared to be no acknowledged collection held of the event reports. The VMCC has a small collection but to ensure I could hold the old reports in a consistent manner, either as the basis for articles or to have reproductions available for those undertaking research of events, or family members who took part, I thought it important to acquire and bring together as many reports as available. To do this I have been able to rely on the generosity of a number of people especially ‘STB’ who provided scans of their own copies but also the benefit sites like eBay provide in having a ready resource of old magazines on sale. In addition I have been gifted or purchased programmes when they become available. This page is an index to what material I hold and any offers of reports or materials to add to this list will always be welcome.
