For those who have never seen Bruno race a Vincent, this is a treat. The Carole circuit is just outside of Paris and the race organization is Vitesse Motos Ancienne or VMA. Bruno won enough races to be the 2021 Champion and I believe this is a 650 cc class he is riding in. There are three 9 minute videos for the whole race and it gets very lively at the end.

There are some nice shots of Bruno. The camera is on the bike of Laurent Gilles and is a Yamaha XT.

The videos should be in order:

Rolf Englhardt was pretty fast on an XT at Shannonville during SLR ‘77! Those are some good videos!

Great video's....... Interesting footage........You can see Bruno enters many corners near mid-track ........ the XT rider uses a lot more wide corner entries and later exits ........ I would say this is a direct result of the easy turning in ability of the Vincent with all the suspension upgrades ........ There is a mix of disc and drum brake bikes in there as well ........ This can be seen by the corner entry speeds ........ All good fun.
