• Cadwell host Beezumph
Lincolnshire’s Cadwell Park welcomed back Beezumph, after it spent a few years away, on the other side of Great Britain at the Welsh circuit of Anglesey.
A fine selection of machines congregated for the event, on July 27, which is essentially a British and European only track day. Of course, Triumph and BSA triples were in the ascendancy, with several ex-race machines there, as well as rarities like Kevin Charles’ Difazio Hurricane triple.
