1950s world champion returns to the grand prix paddock

Motorcycling’s oldest-surviving world champion visited Silverstone last weekend. Ninety-one-year-old Cecil Sandford won two world championships in the 1950s, making history when he won MV Agusta’s first crown, the 1952 125cc title.

It is great to see Sir Sandford visiting the MV Forward Paddock.
I saw an Interview with him at MotoGp.com.
Yeah one of the great Champions of a long gone Era.
And the first for MV Agusta.
