It was a great finale to what has been a difficult year.”

Lawrence, known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ who bought one of the first Brough SS100s in 1925 having previously owned three Brough SS80s. The crash that would end his life came while riding another SS100, on a narrow road near his cottage in 1935.”
