Ultimately it became the fastest motorbike in the world in both top end speed and quarter mile times for a while, even against serious opposition from the States, remember, this was still the early/mid sixties . . . . I've only ever read about it and seen photos, never any action footage, I had thought it wouldn't be too difficult to track some down . . . . incorrectomundo . . . . seems like fuck all people were pointing the Super 8 at old George back in the day, whatever the reason, there wasn't a buch of stuff out there to choose from . . . .
Then, about two hours ago I lucked onto this brilliant period piece complete with some decent narration and, at no extra charge, some excellent action shots of Dean Moon's, Dante Duce piloted dragster at Britain's legendary 'Silverstone' strip in 1963 . . . . also squeezing themselves into frame are some of the U.K's best 1/4 milers, and some novelty value courtesy of a pair of Ford Anglias that appear to be nudging at least 45mph as they disappear in agonising tardiness down the track.
So, after initially being pissed off and feeling totally bummed, I now find myself totally cock a hoop with my unearthing of this mega bit of speed history . . . . the amazing George Brown on the super charged "Super Nero" Vinnie and the Mooneyes dragster, all in the one film, giddy up motherfucker, time's a'wastin . . . .
