Vincent sidecar round a circuit

I love this trailer (see link below) of a black&white documentary filmed about a Vincent sidecar combination ridden by a Belgian couple, Michel and Bernadette. Judging by the number of other sidecars that they overtake in a short time, these two are no slouches and the Vincent has plenty of oomph (apparently bored out to 1300cc..) And the music tack is great too.

Here is a picture of how this beast probably looks on its own:

I think there must be more good crazy people in Belgium than in any other country I know! Hope they get a government soon.

(are you out there Luc? Got any ideas on this?)
