Mr. Harrison, a member of Brighton Cine Club, films motorcycle races around a field and spectators attending to watch the scramble.


Motorbikes speed around a course, marked out in a hilly field. Spectators watch from behind ropes. For one race, two riders steer the bikes around the course, one driving and one leaning out to the side. A Motor Cycle News notice is seen. Motorbikes driven by single riders speed past. The camera pans across the crowds of spectators in attendance.
