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!
