I had a rare chance to watch one being ridden at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Laconia, NH USA a very long time ago...it is still fresh in my mind.

These bikes are the absolute pinnacle, in my opinion.
Seen them ridden on several tracks. Something incredibly rare and you can feel the reverence & respect in the crowd as they go by.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! That was simply breathtaking! I'd never heard of Mr. Britten before. Such genius. May he rest in peace.
