There will also be some unique demonstration laps by the extraordinary Britten V1000, an iconic machine built by John Britten and a group of friends with limited resources in a home workshop in New Zealand during the early 90s. Scott Smart will ride the innovatively designed motorcycle which has been bought to the UK by New Zealand collector Ken Grant.
