Art Deco Silver Trophy
Possible interest for motorcycle racing enthusiasts with a liking for Art Deco period design.
An Art Deco winner’s trophy dating from 1931, awarded to a Mr MB Saunders by the Brooklands Motor Cycle Racing Club for his winning aggregate performance in Class A for that year.
We have ascertained that Mr Saunders won a race at the famous Brooklands circuit on 18 April 1931, riding an English made Excelsior machine. Unfortunately we are unable to find any further results for him but it seems he must have done pretty well throughout the season to win this cup.
