1916 Racing Motorcycles at the Autodromo de Sitges-Terramar, Spain
Located near Barcelona, the Autodromo de Terramar once held races for cars and motorbikes, before being abandoned to the elements like so many other tracks. There are modern plans to revive the location with penthouse suites, a casino, 5 star hotel, etc. Info at the link above if you are interested. But we’re here to view a little of the history and to see two of the motorbikes.
Manuel Parra sent in these great photos of the track and some of the bikes and cars that raced their during the 1920’s.
At Cometa Restauraciones, Manuel has these two race bikes for sale. A c1916 Indian and Harley, both had been stored in an abandoned warehouse near the track since the 1950s. The racing history of the bikes is not fully known, but Manuel has had them for many years and has finally decided to let them go. Feel free to contact him at the link above to get more details.
