Brough Shakes The Salt With Ace Cafe! 13/07/2011

Brough shakes the salt with Ace Cafe London!

 
Ace Cafe London is thrilled and privileged to be able to confirm being part of the Brough Superior Team heading out in August to the famous Bonneville salt flats, Utah, USA with a motorcycle based on the iconic 1927 SS100, a machine sharing heritage and fame with a Col. T.E. Lawrence - "Lawrence of Arabia".
 
Brough were last "on the salt" in 1949 with a streamlined machine ridden and crashed by Noel Pope - he vowed to "Never ride a streamline motorcycle again".
 
Racing at Bonneville 2011, unstreamlined and with a specially tuned JAP V-Twin engine running on "pump" fuel, the new Brough Superior SS100 Retro is the direct responsibility of Brough's head of engineering Alastair Gibson, formerly chief mechanic at Honda F1 and with whom a Honda F1 car broke Bonneville records in 2006.
 
Mark Upham, CEO of Brough Superior Motor Cycles Ltd, confirms that Brough's works rider at Bonneville is the British "salt" veteran Eric Patterson who, in 2008, set and broke records on his JAP engined Cafe Racer style Triumph Norton Special.
 
Made in England & Racing in America!
