Series C type at the Vincent Owners Club High-Speed Trials at Cadwell Park, near Louth, Lincs. (Above) Regular competitor Harvey Mitchell always circulates steadily and reliably on his standard 1952 Rapide, complete with tank cover but a chrome headlamp shell. Here he tackles the club circuit's hairpin where the Rapide's low bottom gear helps. (Below) Londoner Peter Biles accelerates out the hairpin on his 1952 Comet 499cc single. Much modified and using Vincent magnesium brake plates with air scoops.
