Jimmy Guthrie and his Norton Model 40

This great photograph features Jimmy Guthrie at the 1933 Isle of Man TT, he’s push starting his Norton Model 40 and if you take a look into the background you’ll make out a Velocette and another Norton. Gunthrie went on to claim 3rd place in this event, contrary to what this picture implies, there were more than 3 motorcycles in the race!
