The Venom sports version of the Velocette 500 single was added to the Veloce range in 1955 and rapidly won all-round approval...
The first roadtest reported that it matched “scintillating open-road performance with unobtrusive city behaviour… combining a super-sports performance, docility, exhaust and mechanical quietness and ease of control”. And this particularly delicious 1959 Venom could be yours – for a quid! It’s the top prize in the VMCC’s summer raffle.
Tickets are available now for £1 apiece from www.vmcc.net or 01283 540557. The draw will be held on June 28, so make sure you return your tickets and payment before then. Good luck!
