    On 31st August 1970, the BSA/Triumph (Rob North) Triples announced their arrival on the Worlds “racing” stage when Paul Smart set at series of records at the August Bank Holiday Crystal Palace meeting riding Daytona No.8.

    The circuit has long since disappeared but there are many features from the original track still recognisable.

    This event is to celebrate that day, 50 years ago, when the triples showed the world that Britain was still a major force in motorcycle racing.

    The meeting will be held as close to the old race track inside the park as is possible.

    Please note that this will be very informal i.e. it’s a bring your own flask and sandwiches event.  I will be bringing along Daytona No.8, the bike that Paul Smart rode to victory that day, 50 years ago, in the back of the van for a photo opportunity.  I’ll also bring along some archive bits and pieces from my own collection.  The remainder of “what’s going to happen” will very much be decided by whatever people want to do.
