Description

Tommy Robb is interviewed by Gordon Burns about the challenges that await him as he takes his Bultaco bike to the treacherous Montjuïc circuit - a former street circuit located on the Montjuïc mountain, in Barcelona. Meanwhile, a number of local competitors look ahead to the glamorous, if gruelling Monte Carlo Rally along the French Riviera and southeast France. Amongst those interviewed about the Monte Carlo Rally are Ernest McMillan, Brian Metcalfe, Beatty Crawford, Adrian Boyd and John Lammie. These news rushes are courtesy of the UTV Archive, they also feature brief scenes of men's hockey.
